* Music/{{Beyonce}} did this with "4", moving away (not entirely, but largely) from hip-hop and dance music, going more towards old-style R'n'B and orchestral music. Then there was her SelfTitledAlbum, which saw her shift to the newly-created and rapidly rising PBR&B genre, heavily influenced by HipHop and ElectronicMusic.

* Music/{{AFI}} started off as a derivative hardcore punk band (a la BlackFlag) but switched to a blend of post-hardcore, Music/{{Emo}}, hardcore punk and alternative rock (exemplified with 1999's 'Black Sails In The Sunset'), they then perfected that new sound with 'Sing The Sorrow' (one of the key albums of early 2000's post-hardcore) and 'Decemberunderground' and have now gone to straightforward {{Punk}} with 'Crash Love' and back to The Sisters of Mercy-style operatic rock with 'Burials'.

* Music/PearlJam moved from their accessible hits ''Music/TenAlbum'' towards more experimental waters starting with ''No Code'', and they eventually returned to head-on grunge/hard rock with either ''Riot Act'' or ''Pearl Jam'' (depends who you ask).

* Music/MyChemicalRomance pulls this with pretty much every album. ''I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love'' was straight ahead PostHardcore/[[EmoMusic Classic Emo]] with a lot of screamed lyrics, distorted guitars, and even a few straight ahead HardcorePunk songs. ''Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'' largely continued with this sound but added PostPunk, GothRock and PopPunk, decreased the amount of screamed lyrics and focused more on Gerard Way's emotional vocals. This coupled with better song writing and the big hits "Helena" and "I'm not okay (I Promise)" made it a hit. Around this time they also embraced their neo-goth meets horror punk image. ''Music/TheBlackParade'' was a major shift since it was a full on ConceptAlbum influenced by 70's rock styles such as ProgressiveRock and the artier side of GlamRock, all while still staying true to their Music/{{Emo}} roots and becoming their MagnumOpus in the process. [[Music/DangerDaysTheTrueLivesOfTheFabulousKilljoys Danger Days]] was the biggest change as it had a very modern indie pop influenced sound, incorporating elements of SynthPop, garage rock, and PopPunk. It also had a much more vibrant feel to it which contrasted with their original sound and image, creating a BrokenBase.

** He than took all of those styles and mishmashed them all into one glorious package along with elements of modern indie rock and PopRevival to create what is considered his MagnumOpus ''Music/MyBeautifulDarkTwistedFantasy''. Which is now considered one of the greatest alternative hip hop/pop albums of all time.

* Music/{{XTC}} started out as a hyperactive {{New Wave|Music}} band with punk, reggae and funk influences. These were mostly dropped after the departure of Barry Andrews and arrival of Dave Gregory, which steered them towards a more complex sound inspired by 60's pop on ''Drums and Wires'' (though still definitely {{New Wave|Music}}). When the band stopped performing live, they produced the gentle pastoral folk rock album ''Mummer'', and expanded on this sound - by their MagnumOpus ''Music/{{Skylarking}}'', they had evolved into full-on 60's-inspired pop rock with psychedelic, folk rock and baroque pop elements.

* Music/LinkinPark - After their NuMetal influenced ''Music/HybridTheory'' and ''Music/{{Meteora}}'', they switched to a Music/{{U2}}-esque ArenaRock sound with ''Minutes to Midnight''. [[HypeBacklash The reception was not positive]]. The general consensus was that they gave up everything that made them unique in order to be as generic as possible, and it's generally considered to be their weakest album to date.

* Music/FallOutBoy started out with a mix of fast paced PopPunk and dark Music/{{emo}} introspection (with occasional background screams from pete) on their first album. They're follow up (and breakthrough) album ''From Under the Cork Tree" continued this sound with a much more anthemic vibe. "Infinity on high" added elements of {{Soul}}, {{R&B}}, and BaroquePop. Their last album before the hiatus was "Folie A Deux" which featured a schizophrenic blend of emo, blue eyed soul, Beatles-esque psychedelia, arena rock riffs, and new wave. ** ''Save Rock & Roll''; their come back album veered much closer to pure pop, combining elements of alot of modern trends.

** The latest album, ''The Pale Emperor'', was made by Manson and soundtrack musician [[{{Film/Watchmen}} Tyler]] [[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Bates]]. The genre, according to Manson's Facebook page, is "Suicide Rock". It's a metal/blues infusion with a very cinematic feel, and has been pretty much universally praised by fans and reviewers alike, a distinction that hasn't existed since 2000's ''Holy Wood''. While Manson described ''Born Villain'' as the comeback album, this album will be remembered as the true one, even bringing a career revitalization, a tour with TheSmashingPumpkins, an expansion of Manson's already praised television and film career, and the most praised live shows since the ''Golden Age of Grotesque'' era, with Manson on top of his game once more, singing better than ever, and in shape. According to interviews, the last one was motivated by his role on ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy'', which apparently spawned a fear that, if he ever did time, due to his physique and reputation at the time, he'd be a prison bitch, so he started working out. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Seriously.]] He's even done some images shirtless, something he hadn't done in over a decade due to his weight.

* Music/TheOcean started off their first three albums with a mixture of aggressive hardcore-influenced progressive sludge metal and slow, heavy, dark atmospheric doom metal. Heliocentric and Anthropocentric changed everything with far more clean singing and melodies, and even additions of ballads.
