''October Rust'' has the most ballads and least doomy of any Type O album. It is the first of the band's albums with a "joke intro;" in this case, the intro, "[[Bad Ground]]", is 38 seconds of low-level buzzing, meant to sound as if the listener's speakers are incorrectly plugged in. The second and fifteenth tracks are humorous untitled intros and outros to the album, respectively, with the band downplaying the recording of the album. Another production technique employed on the album is the use of very abrupt endings and segues to a few of the songs, like "[[Green Man]]", "[[Red Water]]" and "[[Haunted]]". "[[Cinnamon Girl]]" is a much heavier cover of Neil Young's song of the same name.
