Sobriety ruined a lot of bands.

Not a band but I nominate Stevie Wonder post (and including) The Woman in Red as the single biggest decline in musical genius ever.

Some bands can do the completely-change-the-sound/genre-and-still-be-brilliant thing (like Ulver did) and some (like U2) can't.
Metallica: pretty good up to Master of Puppets, Justice had shitty production, total and complete shit after that.

Cept Stevie Ray I thought In Step was some of his stronger work.

Ozzy Osbourne - great with Randy Rhodes, unlistenable shit after the plane crash.
..and a couple that maybe didn't go to shit, but were never the same:
Rush - slow decline after Moving Pictures to Power Windows, haven't listed to any of the later stuff in years and years.
kd lang - after she abandoned country. Great voice still, can't stand the music.

They are artists , they must keep creating, a great album is a snapshot in time when "it all" works,by the time you hear the album its past tense
IMO when 'it all" doesnt work they should all go do something else, they should be thankful for what they had, and we should be thankful for what we got
how many artists went out on top so we never got to hear them suck ... Stevie ray,Jimmy Hendrix,Jim Morrison
One guy who has stayed cool going just about every direction possible entirely on artistic whim is Neil Young
do we still call em albums, I was talking to a youngish artist the other day who called them record's and I asked if he was kinda young to be calling them records ?

Here's a good one: Syd Barrett. The guy went out - way out - then made (IMO) the best music of his career. And I think Piper is the best Pink Floyd album.
Speaking of Floyd: good up until Dark Side (starting to slip in places), horrible by The Wall. The more Waters dominated, the more they sucked.

It read to me that he thought BIB was Bon Scott.
And I agree it's just a silly nomination anyway.

I dunno, Chup- both Bowie and Neil Young have had hits and misses in their career (XXX-er, I challenge you to listen to Trans and tell me that is a good album), but overall their catalog is solid.
Some may not be aware, but these guys actually made some decent underground hip hop records until this release. Bridging the Gap and Behind the Front had some bangers. And then along came Fergie.Montani Semper Liberi

Kings of Leon - Only By The Night, this album sounded like something The Frey would put out.
Metallica - St. Anger.
