The brief way to explain the Ziltoid fudgery: if it's horrible and Magma allows it, it probably shows up somewhere in one of the songs. Well, except for instrument-based things like gems going in the wrong direction. Those didn't work out too well, and it's not like you can put the drumkit next to the speaker to avoid the broken parts, hence most of the RB buggery sticking mostly to vocals and venue.
There's a lot of motifs in the venues that appear throughout the album. Things like strobes at the mention of "Ziltoid," and dark (i.e. SPAAAAAAAAACE) lighting during dialogue. And "The Greys" should be a no-brainer.
