Paradise Lost went from harsh doom in the late 80’s early 90’s....to Metallica styled metal in the early to mid 90’s.....to Depeche Mode goth in the late 90’s to early 00’s....to industrial styled goth in the early mid 00’s....to melodic goth metal the late 00’s and early 10’s....and since the mid 10’s to today they went back to harsh doom from the beginning.

This is a great answer! More in line with what I had hoped.

Other picks those bands only changed one time. I'm looking for same band multiple changes.

Or “Theory” as they are now known 

rubbish these days aren’t they !

Wake up call, their first album after the stylistic change was still good for me, it had some summer pop rock songs and it was fun, the new album, say nothing, is not really listenable for me, there's absolutely no movement, only depressive vibes and I can't stand that. Savages was my favourite toad album.

Bon Jovi from glam rock to country (rock?) 

This was first one I thought of.  They're a completely different band the last 10-15 years or so than they were in their prime.  And I can think of a band that I've shifted my tastes for more....I loved these guys and would've called them one of my top 3 favorite bands back in the day.  Now, I can't stand their new music.  I actually won a free copy of What About Now a few years ago and kept the jewel case to use for something else and tossed the inserts and CD in the trash lol.

Yeah, it's so much more boring!  Crush is alright and I like some newer songs, but I really wouldn't call their newer stuff amazing or even that good. They're 80s into early 90s is the best, but it definitely went downhill from there.

For sure. 

I actually hung on though the Have a Nice Day album so I lasted longer than most probably did lol.  I just kept hoping that they'd get back to more melodic rock instead of modern country/adult contemporary.  I completely threw in the towel when Lost highway dropped and the Circle totally wiped out any remaining hope I had.

I always found Great White's evolution interesting. From their almost metallic straight up hard rock debut into the very commercial Once Bitten... and Twice Shy albums into almost an entirely blues band and then back to rock (always blues based) and now whatever shit they are. 

Most bands had one big dip along the way, though, whether it be a Scandi band like Dream Police (not that they have a discography to speak about) or Treat that had that bluesy interlude around 1992. Or one of your Warrant, Dokken, PC69, D2 style bands that sold out mid 90s for a grunge album or two. 

Some crazy journeys for a lot of these bands though. 

Poison is a really good shout too. Including their Paris demo's, every single release they put out was significantly different in style to the previous. Now that I think of it, Poison probably the best shout.

I love what Great White and Poison did with their sound.
Also Motley, should have stayed with Corabi, as they were moviong forward, instead they moved backwards with Vince coming back.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
