Why most webstores suck (somewhat)

This screenshot says it all.

Here we have the product info page for the re-issue of Boards of Canada's "High Score" EP, and according to the product recommendations, what have other people bought? Coldplay, (Swedish hit popband) Kent, (Swedish Idol-winner) Darin and (cropped out) Robin Williams. So not only are they expecting me to believe that other people who "bought" this yet-to-be-released re-issue, but the recommendations only brought up chart-topping artists.

I'm sorry CDON, but I can't suspend my disbelief enough to fall for that.
