They don't need to match any standart.
It's no use to make that kinda rules or create goals for them,
see, I personally'd say FOTL is the match. Then there are people who think Experience is top notch and maybe even people loving that pre-everything stuff, like android, WEL and so on.
I just try to explain you that they'll be "respected and remembered" even if they don't fuckin do another MFTJG.
What does Keith hair has got to do with the seriousness of FOTL?
Liam already stated that Trigger & Nuclear were written in quite a short time and are no indicators for the new album, so no threat in sight.
