Strange Bedfellows

Amazon has some sort of database put together to serve up recommendations based on your prior purchases. Seems good in theory, but they have rarely been right.

Take today, for instance. I purchased a few Over The Rhine CDs from them and, based ostensibly on the album Drunkard's Prayer specifically, they recommended The Conscious Revolution Has Begun by Cipes & the People.

Over The Rhine: singer-songwriter, jazzy, warm vocals, pleasant melodies....

Cipes & the People: Rap, hip-hop....

Soooo not getting the connection there.
