    A collection of weakly composed music comprising of pieces in stereotypical styles of music. It somehow manages to hook itself into your brain while simultaneously being impressively forgettable. Take, for example, "Hoedown." It's essentially a bunch of glissandi with filler notes, repeated for maximized profit. Everything is so formulaic...

    that you're better off composing something of reasonable quality yourself.
