Top 10 Music Artists that Have Gotten Better Over TimeDu
The Top Ten
The two My World albums were cheesy and the melodies were annoying. You can hear how those songs were written to sound cheerful and catchy, but lacking anything that made them truly enjoyable. Compare "Baby" to "ABC" by young Michael Jackson. Both singers were still children before puberty voice change, but ABC has an easy going melody, a cool beat and a fun attitude. Baby is repetitive, shows little variation, and has a cheap leftover RnB beat. I listened to both albums fully, and I have to admit, not all songs are as bad as that one but nevertheless, it didn't sound very good either. It feels too forced and lacks anything fun and entertaining.
Then he hit puberty and oh look: he actually can sing. Unfortunately, the first thing he released was the worst Christmas album I have ever heard. You see, Christmas songs are supposed to be harmonic and heartwarming. Singers with great voices, especially older ones like Frank Sinatra or Barbara Streisand, recorded ...more - Martin_Canine
In my Opinion yes he has gotten better but he still sucks - christangrant
He has gotten a lot better. His recent songs are really good to sing along to. - WinchesterGirl26
So true - christangrant
I would almost say this band gets progressively better with each new release, though 'Dear Agony' is still my personal favourite album of theirs.
However only last year did they start touring outside the USA. It only took them almost 20 years, but better late than never, right? - SuperSonic17
Well my favorite album by them is There is a Hell, but Sempiternal and That's The Spirit aren't bad
Compare The Hills To Starboy - Du

No, they've gotten worse. - Animeguy15
The beatles had started off with merseybeat and poppy the first 2 albums. Then they changed a bit with their album, A Hard Day's Night. Afterward with their two albums, they added folk with Beatles for Sale and Help! (Beatles for Sale being so criminally their overlooked and ignored album) Their career changed when they released Revolver by adding a bit of psychedelic into their songs.
Then in 1967, they released Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, regarded as the greatest album of all time. The album featured new genres added. Art Rock, Psychedelia, Baroque pop and Proto-progressive.
With their next album, perhaps their most strangest, The White Album was released in 1968. Most of the songs were inspired while they were in India.
Abbey Road, the final album (Let it Be being released after their break-up) released in 1969 to mixed respondse by critics. Adding blues and a bit of heaviness.
Let it Be was released in 1970 featuring a bit of Blues and R&B. ...more - Mumbizz01
Yes, they did. But it's not because they started bad - they started great, with 'Majesty' being track #1 on their debut album in 1988, a song that is still considered one of the best speed metal songs of all time. However, they have been improving all the time - every next album was better than the previous one and they achieved a stellar musicianship. Perfectionists. - Metal_Treasure
Yes definitely - christangrant
Agreed their newest album was great - christangrant
2014: "Ali throws a party, ooh ladidadi"
2016: political rap about the Palestine/Israel conflict
Seems legit. This guy improved from a whack novelity MC to one of Germany's best conscious rappers in a span of 2 years. - Martin_Canine
Their 2003 Estonia exclusive self titled debut album was silly funk pop.
Their 2004 wider released Traces of Sadness was dramatic synth rock with a female empowerment statement.
Their 2005 success Blue Tattoo added a bombastic and sometimes symphonic sound to the music. The lyrics were more mystical.
Their 2006 last album Love is War showed them liberating from their label and producer, and being essentially an improved version of Traces of Sadness's synth rock premise, but with better lyrics. - Martin_Canine
She's gotten way better. She is dropping her antics in favor of being a social justice hero. Plus, Wrecking Ball is a good song. - DCfnaf
Musically, there is little to hate about Bangerz and Her Dead Petz. Okay, she went on pure drug mode for the latter, but the psychadelic touch was executed well. The reason people hate her is her public image. - Martin_Canine
Hate them or love them - I know way too many people do both beyond any logical reasoning - but if you listen to songs like Sexting or It's On Like Donkey Kong (usually the two that get the most hate for understandable reasons, both 2010) and then to more recent ones like I'm Not in Love Anymore (2016) or especially Where's My Wonderland (2012, and yeah, I really like the song) you wouldn't believe it's the same band. Even if you still don't like their recent stuff, you will have to admit that the improvement is gigantic, most likely even bigger than Bieber's. - Martin_Canine
Nah, nothing good from them exists. - DCfnaf
A Moon Shaped Pool was amazing
Casper started out as an underground rapper, but never seemed to stand out of the crowd.
Then all of a sudden 2011's XOXO happened. He added rock music to the sound and became one of the greatest German songwriters if the 21st century. He pretty much abandoned the hip hop game from then on, and offered a unique mix of indie pop, punk and a few other indefinable genres, and became a patinum selling superstar for socially and politically aware youths. Or to sum it up in his words: "Deutschland krank vor Zorn / Die Kids haben komplett den Verstand verlor'n! " ("Germany's sick of rage / The kids have completely lost their minds! "). - Martin_Canine
Every album is just greater than the last one
I think they reached their peak with "The Black Parade, also 3CFSR was better than Danger Dayz, and all of them were better than Conventional Weapons, which is just as good as their debut.
Maybe that's just me, but I think the quality of their albums has little to do with the time they were released. - Martin_Canine
German rapper Kollegah already started out exceptionally great, but his lyrical abilities became three times as good over the years. The quality of word play reached levels that take a few listens to fully understand it all, and the amount of it also increased. Plus, the choice of beats became way better. While in the beginning, they consisted mostly of cheap electro beats, later on he rapped mostly over bombastic orchestral, or atmospheric dark beats. And his overall stage persona became way more serious. His pimp gimmick was rather tongue in cheek in the beginning, but nowadays he delivers it completely convincingly, and it never comes off as silly. - Martin_Canine
