* In the beginning, Music/{{Sevendust}} gradually got lighter with each release. Their SelfTitledAlbum was very aggressive, raw metal with some songs bordering on [[ThrashMetal Crossover Thrash]], a far cry from the more accessible sound of their later albums. ''Home'' and ''Animosity'' featured more clean vocals and less screaming, but were still relatively heavy. ''Seasons'' and ''Next'', however, really toned things down, with half the songs being borderline radio rock that wouldn't sound out of place on a LinkinPark album. Which makes it rather jarring to hear the album that came after ''Next'', ''Alpha'', which is their angriest, loudest, and heaviest album to date.

%%* Music/{{Madonna}}'s ''Hard Candy'' has generally been criticized for being closer to the fluff pop of her earlier style than later works such as ''Ray of Light'' and ''Confessions on a Dancefloor''.

** Specific rapper example: The early works made by South Korean rapper Music/{{PSY}} [[OlderthanTheyThink during his debut years were dark and gritty, with his ''Urbanite'' took that UpToEleven by turning Workaholic [[CrapsaccharineWorld Crapsaccharine social phenomenon]] into SarcasmMode. Then come to TheNewTens, his recent songs like ''Music/GangnamStyle'' and ''Napal Baji'' becoming brighter and sillier, with a few serious moments.

* Music/{{Katatonia}} was a TropeCodifier for the death/doom metal sound on their first few releases, but they proceeded to drop the DeathMetal elements in favor for AlternativeMetal, while keeping a heavy DoomMetal influence still. Compare [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Umbko1vFy6Y Without God]] to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C66QYYdN9F0 Dispossession]]

* FaithNoMore really had no direction to go ''but'' Lighter And Softer after the nightmarish ''Angel Dust''. ''King For a Day, Fool For a Lifetime'' had its share of disturbing and brutal metal tracks ("Cuckoo for Caca", "Ugly in the Morning"), but the contrasting songs were noticaebly way more laidback, usually alternating between AlternativeRock, lighter takes on {{Grunge}} and {{Novelty Song}}s in the styles of {{Jazz}} and {{Pop}}. ''Album of the Year'' mostly followed suit, with the occasional ''Angel Dust''-esque metal number ("Collision", "Last Cup of Sorrow", "Paths of Glory") surrounded by more upbeat {{Punk|Rock}} and Alt Rock tracks as well as experiments with ambient {{electronic|music}} sounds. Though both of these albums came after the departure of original guitarist Jim Martin, they are still noticeably DarkerAndEdgier than ''Introduce Yourself'' and ''The Real Thing''.

* Music/BringMeTheHorizon started out as a {{deathcore}} outfit on their first album, they quickly changed to a lighter yet still hard-sounding {{metalcore}} band afterwards. This stayed for a long time and they became one of the faces of metalcore. Naturally, it was a surprise when all of this was tossed aside with ''That's the Spirit''. They abandoned metalcore completely for a ''much'' lighter radio-friendly sound that incorporates {{nu metal}}, {{emo}}, alternative rock, {{pop punk}}, and electronic rock. Listening to "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWggPLXeOkU Play for Plagues]]", then "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJEahE-4juQ Shadow Moses]]", and then "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow_qI_F2ZJI Throne]]", they sound like three completely different bands.

* There's two versions of Andrew Belle' "Sky's Still Blue": The original and the version made for a commercial. The revised version is significantly fluffier, with a lighter tone, an acoustic sound, and changed lyrics, compared to the melancholy original.
