I'm clearly a latecomer to the RAM party. Absolutely love the recording quality and style of music.
Any others like it in terms of sound quality and music genre? Can really use a collection of such albums (for those days I just don't feel like rock, acoustic or classical).
Why not check out Daft Punk's back catalogue for starters? I'm not really a fan of RAM personally - just too poppy sounding compared with their early French House sound on Homework. Homework, Discovery and Alive 2007 are all well worth checking IMO. Human After All is best avoided though - generally insipid; the tracks from that are better represented on Alive.
Definitely a deliberate throwback to original funk/soul + disco records of the 70s and 80s, yes - I just prefer to go back to the original thing rather than hear DP's modern take on it, which sounds a bit uninspired to me, by comparison. I guess I preferred it when Daft Punk were sampling old records rather than making them! Different strokes though eh? Homework had a real energy to it and still holds up well for me. Discovery is a lot closer to RAM in its lightness, so if you don't know that one, it could still be worth checking.
I thought the CD sounded very good, but so does the vinyl LP. I have not done a direct comparison. The LP is dead quiet though, probably one of the best pieces of vinyl in my collection.
Drool! That's it. Goes straight to the top of my want list.
