He went through a neat gospel phase after that r&b album. Really good stuff, at least to me. He did some great covers too. Check out dyin to live. I saw one YouTube of him and Joss Stone this morning being produced by Herbie Hancock which was pretty fantastic too. I do agree that his first two albums were my favorites. I like to see people grow musically but not stray too far from their roots. He has definitely become a more accomplished guitarist from his formative years.
