It seems like with most bands that last for more than one or two albums, that the consensus is that the early albums > newer ones. What are some bands that have displayed the opposite.

Muse

Showbiz - Origin of Symmetry - Absolution - Black Holes & Revelations - The Resistance


Though they may have peaked with BH&R.

beatles, lamb of god, modest mouse, rhcp, sublime. just off the top of my head. sure there alot more.

I think usually it's the fans that liked their older style more, not that the albums got worse.

But, I liked the Number Twelve Looks Like You's latest album, while I hated everything else they've ever done.

EDIT: I think #12 got better over the past few albums. I meant to add that in.

There has to be at least 5 threads a week on this type of subject.

They got more pop-y on Black Holes, and I was tired of cutting myself whenever I heard their music Though that's for the Muse thread.

In fact, this whole thread should be in Bands & Artists.

Fugazi
Dead Kennedys (Bedtime for Democracy wasn't as good but from their 1st to 3rd got slightly better each time.)

While not a complete consensus, most fans seem to agree that Porcupine Trees new albums (In Absentia and onwards) are better than the older ones. Then again, it's an entirely different style...

The Beatles defined this. well, until 1967 or so. they kinda slip after Pepper.
He's not a band but Dylan evolved album by album also, (also til about '67)
the Kinks,too. from bluesy riffing to musical hall and indian influence to perfect english pop in 66-8.

More recently, I think Nickel Creek showed astonishing progression over only 3 LPs.
Elliott Smith's lush sound on his later records beats the spare sound of his KRS releases.

In Absentia and Deadwing are their best, but the newer two(or what I've heard of The Instance) are pretty suck imo.

I disagree actually, my two favourite albums are The Sky Moves Sideways and In Absentia, but I've always been more drawn towards the earlier albums. They still own most other bands out there though
