I agree, the OP set the bar at "Best Success," not "Best Music"!  

Genesis would also fit with that criterion.  

For "best music late in the career," I'd say that King Crimson would be a candidate....the LTIA trio of LTIA, SABB and Red are much more consistent and muscular than the first three KC releases.  

The Discipine era also had some legs.  Fripp proved that, by reinventing the band but retaining key elements of the musical vision, improvement could be found.  

After Discipline, the results are mixed, but still pretty darn good by any standards.

I gotta go with VANDEN PLAS. Their last 2 albums have been by far, in my opinion, their best and most complete works to date. Really hone their sound wonderfully and uniquely on CHRIST O and SEPAPHIC CLOCKWORK.
I would really put both these albums as 2 of some of the very best progressive metal albums in the 21st century...at least from 2000-2010. Exceptional works. I really look forward to hear Vanden Plas's next effort....when ever that may be ?
Belhold the power and gift of BEARD! As Damian Wilson sports a beard now his voice somehow got even better than it already was. :)
