If there's no discussion of new music, Why bother?

If there is, by some miracle, even a few new songs, there would need to be an honest assessment of that new music in light of previous achievements under the guitarist they fired.

I guess what I'm saying is, a positive review like this is only addressing a single night's entertainment, allowing masses of casual fans who want to hear the songs they sort of adore when they're in the mood for them a night of bliss. Bravo.
Other than tour profits for as long as they are physically able to take the stage, I donít think this band is striving for anything more. I donít think they want to go beyond that. They want accolades for their past, but arenít looking to gain new ones, for new achievements.
