Well both OOT and AFTP used a lot of chamber-rock strings-y stuff, something they dropped for the next two albums. NAIHF maintained much of the guitar fuzz of Monster, but was "recorded mostly on teh road." Document and Green are just maintaining the mainstream rock of LRP but less rock-y and not quite as good.
To me Reckoning is more of a piece with Fables Of The Reconstruction than Murmur, and Murmur is a little less new-wavey than Chronic Town.
OOT, I've realized over the years, is laden with cutesy pretty filler songs; problem is, I really LIKE those cutesy pretty filler songs!
