That album Blue Afternoon is certainly one of his better albums.

I've wondered the same thing. I can't say any of the previews I've heard from his later albums make me want to shell out for them. I can understand a musician wanting to branch out artistically but as a fan it can be disconcerting when they have excelled in a particular genre and they want to go in a different direction.
