I don't think the point of any album should be zero lasting value. There are tons of albums that aren't deep lyrically or anything else, but you still want to listen to them 20+ times. but if a band is only striving for face value and 3 listens, then they're doing something wrong.
I disagree on the lasting value, i think that was kind of my point and I didn't get it across in the last post. I think it has lasting value just for listening to it for fun's sake and nothing much more. Just my opinion, though.
