From 1970 to 1980 there is barely a weak track let alone a weak album. In terms of a decade plus of record making (12 studio albums in 11 years) that puts him in a class all on his own - above Dylan, Stones, Lennon, LZ, Aretha, Miles, Joni. 12 great albums in a row without ever repeating a trick. Doesn't really matter what he did or didn't do after that. It's a unique achievement in rock n roll. Most people manage a 3 - 5 year burst of greatness if they are lucky. Is that a qualification for genius status? I'd say so.
