Kidz Bop Kids return with another set of questionably appropriate tracks on Kidz Bop, Vol. 27. The proven formula of tweens singing adult pop songs continues here with a bevy of hits from 2014 including Ariana Grande's "Break Free," Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off," Charli XCX's "Boom Clap," and many more. The production is clean and the performances fall somewhere between hyper-realized karaoke and a sort of low-level minor leagues for aspiring teen pop stars. ~ Timothy Monger
