Part of being a music fan is always having to reconcile with the fact that your favorite artists will likely grow or change in ways that you might not like. That’s part of what makes the love affair so intriguing. When we first discover a new exciting artist, we cherish them. Brag about them. Obsess over them. If they possess the level of appeal that we believe they do, they eventually catch on. EPs give way to full albums. Albums give way to tours. It’s an ongoing upward and outward trajectory. Some acts burn out quickly. Others hang around. Regardless of their timeline, they never end up being the artist you started with. Careers rarely come full circle.
