Greatest Left Turns in Music History?

I'm not talking about a death metal band doing a few more poppy hooks than usual, I'm talking about a band doing an album that doesn't sound anything like what they'd done before, for example Kid A. What are the greatest "Kid A"s in music history?
1Radiohead
Kid A


Wouldn't call this their best album but it definitely fits the list.
2Linkin Park
A Thousand Suns

ReturnToRock: "These are not all good, in fact most are NOT good, but they all fit the bill"
...to which Avagantamos responds: "I feel like GREATEST left turns in musical history implies that the albums should be good"

And Avagantamos is right.
8Talk Talk

Ryus [2]
Cygnatti [3]
...to which Sinternet responds: "Colour of Spring came before SoE and heavily hinted at what they were going for, don't get why it's brought up a lot in regards to this"

12 Golden Country Greats


ArsMoriendi: "Ween did a Country album once and it's good"
I'm just gonna assume that Ars is refering to this thing
10Gorguts
Obscura


Deathconscious: "Gorguts - The Erosion of Sanity to Obscura"
11Ulver
Perdition City


Masochist: "Ulver going from Black Metal to Trip Hop to Ambient to poppy Synthwave. But really, probably Perdition City"
12Celtic Frost
Cold Lake


Budgie: "Celtic Frost stopping their shitty early style and dropping Cold Lake, a masterpiece of the 80s"
13Hundredth
Rare


JesperL
14Neurosis
Souls at Zero


Deathconcious: "What about Neurosis' The Word As Law to Souls At Zero?"
15Anathema
Alternative 4


dfevil085 just wrote "Anathema maybe?" so I'm assuming he's refering to this album

Morningrise767
...to which McP3000 responds: "I would agree with the Opeth nods if everything they made after Ghost Perdition wasn't dogshit."
...to which Donchivo responds: "well maybe not completely dog shit, but bland and boring..."
iambandersnatch also says: "Heritage is good enough to at least be mentioned, it's not their best but it's still good"
27Ben Howard
Noonday Dream


porcupinetheater: "It’s less overtly dramatic a change, but BH coming out with ND after doing Every Kingdom less than a decade earlier feels huge"

ChoccyPilly: "An ok, repetitive established black metal band throw it all away and put out the best metal album of the decade that is nothing like what 5they've done in the past.... and then break up shortly after."
