Maybe I'm alone on this, it's a strange topic, but are there any bands you feel in their current formation aren't what you wish for, but in a few years you'll dig. Example? Mine? Tool. As some of you remeber, I made a thread about how I'm the only one of my friends who doesn't worship Tool. I just think they are OK. They don't do much for me, right now. They seem to have a formula they've stuck to for the past two albums that leads a lot of the songs to really blend together for me. Flashy (cool) drums, weird (often very similar to me) timed riffs. OK, cool. But they seem in a bit of a rut. For all I know, their new album will turn me into a believer, I mean hell, they've matured a helluvalot since Opiate. But I don't think they are there yet. By there I mean good enough for me. But I like some bands "of lesser talent" but they do their style well, to me Tool is attempting a style they dont' fully understand yet, but once they get it, it will be fantastic. And they will no doubt go beyond that. I guess that's why I don't like Tool that much, plus OVERKILL from my friends/every frat boy who thinks they are metal. I like them as is, but I'm curious what the Mars Volta will be doing in about 7 years. Sadly, it seems many of these MTV generation band are burning out faster than they showed up, but we have to take into account, when we turn on "classic rock radio" in the future, this is what we will hear. But the problem is, as soon as these bands lose any steam, the labels drop them, giving them a very short lived career, and that's terrible. Back in the day, a band/artist could make 3 albums that would flop and they'd still have a job the next day. But that's another tirade for another blah blah blah. Any other examples of bands who, in your opinion, haven't fully developed.
