    Deep Purple probably evolved more than any rock band I can think of.

    This. But I think it's just as much of their sound production as it is them. Their 1st couple of albums are pretty solid tho. Well produced too.


    Metallica is another band that comes to mind as they've been thru a few different changes.


    I dunno, on one hand it sucks when a band you dig changes their sound. On the other -it can be tedious doing the same thing over and over again.


    One band that I thought handled what I like to refer to as 'steady evolution' really well was 'Nothingface'. They did 4 major albums and each one evolved from the next while keeping some of what worked previously in place. All 4 of their albums are good imo, if you are in to the band of course.


    An example of a band handling it poorly for me would be Slipknot. Their 1st album was great -and then they completely abandon that formula because 'reasons'

    Perry went from this


    To this


    Both Perry and his wife ruined Jane's and I'll forever hate them for it.

    I almost can't believe how metal "Ignorance" is, and how they transitioned to Indi style rock so smoothly.

    The Beatles went from "Love Me Do" to "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" in the space of about four years.

    R.E.M went from this


    To this


    Then after the mid 90s they went to pieces and their albums became unlistenable for me.

    I guess as they're in my avatar, I gotta post Mastodon.





    They're still metal obviously, but still a notable enough change.

    Well, I guess the artist in my av as well as sig fits the criteria. Chelsea certainly didn't get softer over time.

    Thanks for posting this. Even though I listen to a lot of Demons and Wizards, Iced Earth, and Dragon Force type shit, I never liked Mastadon. Might look at them again. Their new stuff sounds more my speed.

    I don't necessarily agree, but MM circa 97-01 was something special.
