Does anyone else think that the many of the albums under the "Customers who bought this item also bought" section don't really go with this album at all? There are a lot of indie/indie rock/pop albums, and this album is beat/hip hop stuff. It's also strange because it's always on my recommendations page but I don't have any other albums of this genre on there, in fact I have lots of albums by the New Pornographers, Spoon, the National, etc.......what is the connection??? Am I just not getting it?

I think it has to do with the "Pineapple Express" trailers. Paper Planes has become a hit single since the movie started advertising... hence, people who wouldn't normally buy this genre of music are interested in the album all of a sudden. I wouldn't have even considered buying it had I not heard Paper Planes first just because it's something I wouldn't normally listen to.... what you're seeing is the affect of a lot of people feeling that way about it. Those are my two cents anyway....

Her fanbase has always been the indie kids and hipsters (except for me).

OH it's all based on individual taste I'm sure. For example, I bought Tommy Dorsey's Golden Era because I enjoy a wide range of music. So they recommended from other customers purchases, Jay Z's American Gangster. In case you are not familiar, Tommy Dorsey was a Big Band Leader from 1940s. What connection in all of hell does Tommy Dorsey and Jay Z have in common?
This new form of mass marketing is blowing my mind. I'll buy a Jazz download and they'll recommend all sorts of music, I wouldn't ever buy even if I was drunk. Sometimes, I think it is because they named their albums similar names or they were on a soundtrack together.
Of course they are just trying to sell more downloads and cds. They need to rethink their procedures for the computer recommendation. It isn't working as you know. So don't feel like the Lone Ranger. We all are getting this junk marketing.
