    This is a fun album for sure but there's not a lot of sonic variety, something in which RAM has this clearly beat.

    This debut album buries RAM in production value, alone.. It's a house album, a dance album with garage and 2-step elements. It's overall quality lies in every track, RAM bores the shit out of me at times.

    You might like this album more than RAM, but saying it buries RAM in production value is just ridiculous.

    I'm a huge fan of both albums. But apples and oranges here folks. RAM and Settle are both good albums in their own ways.

    With that being said, I'd rather play settle at a party or something.

    I'm not talking about whether each of them are good or not. I'm talking "production value."

    And RAM was very meticulously produced.

    Well, yeah, that's obvious. I'm not sure if gmoney is trolling or not.

    Well, I believe that he's talking about the synths, effects, and chords they're using. The album is pretty much in the same key throughout, has similar drum techniques, etc... which makes it seemingly lack "sonic variety." Nevertheless, I think it's awesome.

    I find myself skipping at least half of the tracks on the album. I think a lot of you are making this out to be more than it is.
    "Defeated No More" is truly great, though.

    In simple, non-technical terms, Settle sounds like a lot more effort was made into producing it. RAM sounds like it was knocked out rather quickly, less cohesive, meandering ideas etc.. I don't hate it, but it's vastly overrated.

    That's all. Who gives a fuck about what album has more synths and effects.

    No one gives a fuck about production value, except for the artist and their label. This is a non-issue for most people, and it's fucking borderline retarded for your average consumer to even consider this when evaluating musical merit.

    ETA: The synths comment was in regards to the sonic variety comment. I believe that disclosure is using no more than one or two synths, which is why a lot of the songs have a similar sound.

    And btw, of course Settle buries RAM in production value; they're mostly ITB for their productions.

    If we mean production value in the literal sense of the phrase -- how much money and resources were spent on the production -- and not as a value judgment on the final product itself, then very few things come close to the production value of Random Access Memories.

    In other words, he's talking about how much less it cost Disclosure (in time, money, and other resources) to make their album in comparison to Daft Punk.

    Why that matters, I have no idea. Daft Punk was elaborate in everything they did, from where they recorded, to who they recorded, and what instruments they recorded, which probably drove their production value way up. I'm sure Columbia paid for it though, so who even gives a shit.

    Again, we're talking about two groups who are vastly different. From their fan base, their genre of music, ideals, etc... they simply cannot be compared in most ways. The only thing that is categorically comparable is their sales, in which I have no idea who's selling what and frankly, that wouldn't matter to me anyway.

    It's about the music, man.

    You're right.

    I was looking at it more as a value judgement. But yeah, in the literal sense, DP clearly has way more PV.
