If you are, as I am, delighted by the synthesis of rock with various styles, including funk and smart-angry rap, you will not be disappointed. And if, like me, you know this band well, well then you don't need that information. R.A.M. was a unique band. Like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, they combined genres seamlessly, in a manner no-one had ever managed to pull off. Additionally, both bands share in common excellent musicianship and well-produced recordings. A superb recording with a message, from a band that cranked out consistently excellent recordings until it disbanded and most of its members joined up w/Chris Cornell. But that's a whole other story.
