Haven't been visiting this particular subforum for a while, but I did right now and saw the thread about "5 best songs of the 90's". One of the songs I voted for was REM's Losing My Religion - and I immediately thought: Is this tune actually from the 90's? It was, and it turns out that it was from REM's 7th album. It kinda blew my mind, cuz most bands/artists are long since burned out by their 7th album. REM, though, went on to make Automatic for the People and at least a few other great albums. Monster, New Adventures in Hifi comes to mind. So, the question is: Which are the artists that got progressively better as their carrer went on, and made it to the 7th (or so) album before reaching peak level?
