I don't think Rush are a very good example, since they changed too gradually from album to album. I don't think you can jump the shark until after you reach your peak. Farewell To Kings isn't Rush jumping the shark, it's Rush still learning what their strengths and weaknesses were and trying out new things with some success and some failure. Saying that album is Rush jumping the shark is like saying Lizard was King Crimson jumping the shark or that Time And A Word was one for Yes.
(Also, come on man Xanadu is one of their best songs ever. The album deserves props for that at the very least. ;) )
