Yeah, he made a nice collection of songs written by other artists.
He co-wrote five of the ten songs.
He is in the credits in those five songs, but I'm pretty sure he didn't write them and the other guys were generous enough to put him in the credits. Roy Orbison used to write songs in the '60s, but it seems he wasn't writing any longer at that point. Same as with the Traveling Wilburys: the others wrote them and gave them to him to sing, and then credited him as a songwriter too. I don't think he contributed at all to those songs. They sound very little like his old songwriting.
Even assuming he had written them, I wouldn't call someone's masterpiece a piece of work in which that person has only co-written half of the songs of the album. It may be a masterpiece, but not his masterpiece in my opinion.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Grroosss: Hello, my old friend(s)! ::c0112:: Indeed, I've been trying to take a break from the internet in general, to focus on """"more important"""" things like school/work as well as just to spend some more time 'unplugged'.

Grroosss: But I've missed you all, and I'll be around from time to time. I think even nobodyschild might drop in for a visit soon...
