This is unashamedly talking about what one might call "manufactured pop music"... and as with any genre of music, there's those "industry" types who are simply in it for the money, and there's those who do it for the art.
It's an interesting experiment... it's a logical integration of the established phenomenon of "loops" and "electronic voting".

Yep. People who say they 'know what they like' really (usually) mean they like what they know. And this looks like a brilliant way of giving them more of it. Whether it is good for them is another matter.
