He was accused of slowly selling out after his version of king Crimson broke up. I can see how that is as he grew older and he got more sappy and cheesy with some of his songwriting. And just to be honest, I love those cheesy type of songs! But when he decided to write a good Mel-rock type of song it was always of high quality. He created an absolute masterpiece with "Battle Lines" and every album after that had some great stuff and some not so great stuff. I found "Sinister" and "Rock of Faith" to be his weakest. I could post some songs from each of his albums that I know everyone on here would enjoy but there are so many that it would be indulgent to do so. Here are a few that I hope will be a revelation to some on the board. All of them have some big time musicians performing on them. "Jane". No not the J.Starship song . lol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHfEjFwMFmE&list=PLfOu3bqv8g9OdJY7KkvFauQiMPPu4Hq2C&index=3 "Nothing Happens For Nothing" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sL7giGA7j8 "Lost For Words" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JomkCs-Lev8&list=RDJomkCs-Lev8&start_radio=1
