    tall order

    Hi

    We recorded two very good records. I think it makes a very tall order for where we go next time.

    --- Does it mean we have to create something even better next time?

    A 'tall order' is a task that will be difficult to complete successfully. Your sentence says that, since the first two records were so good, it will be a challenge to follow them with something equally (or more) impressive.

    There will be high expectations for any future records they release.
