What are the biggest transitions a band has made from one album to the next? Try and keep it so most of the members have stayed the same/there isn't a long gap or hiatus the band took (e.g. King Crimson's Red to Discipline). A couple of my favourites:

Genesis: From Genesis To Revelation - Trespass
Harmonium: s/t - Si On Avait...
The Moody Blues - The Magnificent Moodies - Days Of Future Passed
Mike Oldfield - Earth Moving - Amarok 

As always, thanks for any feedback Big smile

Ulver's done that with just about every album.  Some of the transitions were somewhat gradual but a few of them were complete 180s (like, as in Black Metal to Acoustic Folk to Electronica to Post Rock).   It makes them interesting to follow, but it's a little creepy too.

Yep stop the search, Doug found the winner in Dedalus. Wow...talk about taking the road less travelled. I made an indecipherable review of it a good while back and I still stand by my words.

To say Ok Computer was a shock is an understatement, The Bends was an ok indie pop album with a hit single
