* [[OlderThanTheyThink Not many people know]] Music/{{PSY}} during his debut years, but his early songs during TurnOfThrMillennium (''Bird'', ''Urbanite'' and ''We Are The One'' for example) were DarkerAndEdgier, having foul-mouthed, cynical and gritty tones criticizing on some social phenomenon in a BlackComedy VulgarHumor way that garnered so much criticism from public. Come to TheNewTens, his newer songs (''Music/GangnamStyle'', ''Napal Baji'' and ''Daddy'' for example) have gone LighterAndSofter, having more-lighthearted and comical tones even if parodied AccidentalInnuendo are present. This results in better reception than when he debuted.

** Some would argue this began with their previous album, ''The Who Sell Out''.

* Country music artist Jamey Johnson's first album, ''The Dollar'', was fairly well-received among critics, never mind that he wrote the reviled Trace Adkins song "[[StuffyOldSongsAboutTheButtocks Honky Tonk Badonkadonk]]". Due to ExecutiveMeddling, ''The Dollar'' had only one chart single before he got kicked from the label. Although Music/GeorgeStrait and Joe Nichols recorded his songs, and Trace went back to the well for another, Jamey's life unraveled and he briefly lapsed into ReclusiveArtist territory. After he cleaned up, he released his next album, ''That Lonesome Song'', independently before Mercury Records picked it up. ''That Lonesome Song'' got him a Top 10 hit with "In Color", a Grammy nomination, and high praise from critics. His next two albums, ''The Guitar Song'' and ''Living for a Song'', have been just as lauded as ''That Lonesome Song'', maintaining decent sales and extremely high critical acclaim despite not producing any other major hits. Keeping the theme in its literal sense, Jamey went from a neatly-trimmed beard no different than any other modern country male to a much longer and more scraggly one.

* Metal band Music/{{Slipknot}}'s first two albums were well-received by critics, but they were widely criticized by heavy metal fans for their generic sound and almost complete lack of creativity. Even today, the band is one of the most hated in their genre. It seems that the band heard this, because it took them four long years to make their next album, ''Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)'', which featured much better songwriting, a heavier sound, and more polished production. If you pay no attention to the distinct voice of Corey Taylor, you would probably question if it was the same band. The album was essentially raw modern heavy metal that changed the way critics looked at the band forever. Even some of the people that hated the band began to give them a chance. Their next album, ''All Hope Is Gone'', continued the trend. Since Paul Gray's death, they haven't been making new music, but who knows what they will do next?

* Music/{{Supertramp}} had some growing pains when their first two albums hadn't sold very well, and members that were not Rick Davies or Roger Hodgson left the band during the early-70's between albums. It wouldn't be until their third album, ''Crime of the Century'' to become a major critical and commercial success for the band that left to their success for the 70's and 80's.

* Happened with Jefferson Airplane with the release of their second album, ''Surrealistic Pillow'', which included the hit singles "Somebody To Love" and "White Rabbit", a more solid set of songs and the inclusion of singer Grace Slick and drummer Spencer Dryden.

* Music/TalkTalk started out as a typical cheesy, NewWave-y [[TheEighties '80s]] SynthPop band shamelessly ripping off Music/DuranDuran. They grew dramatically over their careers, getting more experimental, culminating in their fantastic final album ''Music/LaughingStock'', which pioneered the genre of post-rock and really showed off what they could do. Unfortunately, they broke up immediately afterwards...

* Polish BlackMetal / DeathMetal band Music/{{Behemoth}} has undergone two points which could be called growing the beard. Their first two albums were well written, but not particularly innovative pure black metal, but with the release of ''Pandemonic Incantations'', drummer Inferno joined the band, and they began to experiment with death metal influences. The next album, ''Satanica'', continued to show improvements, but the beard was fully grown with the release of the acclaimed album ''Demigod'', which featured some of the most intense HarshVocals in death metal. With the release of their latest album, ''[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Evangelion]]'', it's obvious that it's here to stay.

* While there's no denying the quality of Music/TheKinks' early singles such as [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome "You Really Got Me", "All Day And All Of The Night", and "A Well Respected Man"]], a lot of critics feel that their albums were more or less a mixed bag until Ray Davies found his songwriting niche with 1966's ''Face To Face''.
