* Music/CalvinHarris had a pretty consistent sound for most of his music, being poppy upbeat electronic dance music. However, for his fourth album ''Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1'', he decided to change things up to a more rhythmic sound with a funkier beat and more 'urban' guest artists, consisting mostly of rappers and R&B singers. It's more in line with the likes of DJ Khaled than his previous work.

* Music/ImeldaMay had always showed other influences, but her first few albums established her as something of a {{rockabilly}} revivalist, complete with a very distinctive visual style. ''Life Love Flesh Blood'' (2017) showcases a wider range of styles; it's a relatively subtle shift by the standards of the trope, but the accompanying change in her look, from SkunkStripe to LittleBlackDress, made the point clear; as she said, she wanted to stop dressing up as "Imelda May".

* Music/MarinaAndTheDiamonds ([[IAmTheBand It's only one person!]]) started off with indie pop with {{Retraux}} influences, but starting with ''Electra Heart'' she switched to an electropop sound. Apparantly, [[CriticalDissonance the critics were the only ones saying]] "[[TheyChangedItNowItSucks She Changed Her Music, Now She Sucks]]", as it was acclaimed by her fans.

* Music/MilesDavis did this many times. His early work in Cool Jazz was collected into the album ''Birth of The Cool'', before he later switched to Hard Bop with ''Walkin'''. ''Milestones'' marked his switch from hard bop to Modality, a switch he would complete fully on his next album ''Music/KindOfBlue''. His later album ''Miles In The Sky'' marked his foray away from conventional jazz into Jazz-Fusion. He would flirt with the sound a bit through his next two albums, ''Filles De Kilimanjaro'' and ''In A Silent Way'', and he would go all in on the new sound with ''Music/BitchesBrew''.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/TheB52s suddenly switched to pop rock with ''Cosmic Thing''. Suddenly, there's an absence in synthesizers at times and the late Ricky Wilson's surf rock-esque guitar noise has been replaced with Keith Strickland playing what sounds like a hollowbody guitar (as evidenced by a brief scene in the "Roam" video and some shots in the "Channel Z" video).

* [[Music/{{Devo}} Devo]] slowly started moving towards synthpop with ''Freedom of Choice'', and then suddenly changed to industrial dance on ''Total Devo'' and ''Smooth Noodle Maps''.

* Music/AvengedSevenfold started as pure {{Metalcore}} on "Sounding the Seventh Trumpet" before adding cleaner vocals on their sophomore album "Waking the Fallen". But their biggest change came on "City of Evil", which contained clear vocals and musically mixed old-school ThrashMetal with the melodic ferocity, breakdowns, and PopPunk[=/=]PostHardcore elements of modern-day {{Metalcore}}. Their self titled album continued in this direction, although it was more polished. This rankled some fans, as well as having many examples of an OutOfGenreExperience such as the Music/DannyElfman style "A Little Piece of Heaven"[[note]]which even had horn arrangements by Oingo Boingo guitarist/co-arranger Steve Bartek[[/note]] and the country ballad "Dear God". "Nightmare" was released after the death of drummer "The Rev" and was more reflective, as well as featuring a piano ballad called "Fiction" and the pure Metalcore (screamed lyrics and all) of "God Hates Us". Finally, there's "Hail to the King" -- which has been described by lead singer M Shadows as "more BluesRock-influenced and more like classic rock and classic metal in the vein of Music/BlackSabbath and Music/LedZeppelin".

Added DiffLines:

* Music/StoneSour's debut SelfTitledAlbum album was heavily NuMetal-influenced and didn't sound all that different from Corey Taylor's other band, Music/{{Slipknot}}. It wasn't until ''Come What(ever) May'' did they find their place as a more melodic AlternativeMetal[=/=]HardRock band that directly contrasts Slipknot's more chaotic sound.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/SuicideSilence [[TropeCodifier codified]] {{Deathcore}} since their inception and became the leading face of it in the genre. However, their fourth album ''You Can't Stop Me'' incorporated NuMetal elements, though they were still prominently rooted in deathcore. It wasn't until their eponymous fifth studio album that they abandoned deathcore entirely for a 1990s-style nu metal sound. It wasn't well-received by the fans, to say the least.
