I love him from that stuff before anything else. The one Beyond Twilight album he's on is pretty awesome if you're into more experimental, dark Prog Metal, and the Allen/Lande CD's are awesome in my book. But yeah, all of his solo/related work since 2008 has gotten really dull to the point that I have next to no interest in it anymore, and the last Masterplan album was almost painfully mediocre.
Allen/Lande fills me with so much happiness, as do the first two Masterplan albums. The Battle is honestly one of my favorite hard rock albums ever.
