Product Description

Product Description

2CD EMI/VIRGIN, CDNOW53, 2002, DBL 43 Track

Amazon.co.uk

If you're going to buy a sturdy compilation of hits from the pop charts, Now That's What I Call Music 53 is the one to get. Weathering the storm for many years, the brand has survived thanks to its blend of pop, rock, soul and dance.

This instalment includes a good selection of number ones from DJ Sammy ("Heaven") and the Sugababes ("Round Round"), to name but two. Other pop favourites include Blue ("One Love"), Las Ketchup ("Ketchup Song") and Darius with his number one "Colourblind".

On an indie guitar note, there's the giant "In My Place" by Coldplay and "Check the Meaning" by ex-Verve Richard Ashcroft. From the heavy rock camp there's Puddle of Mudd ("She Hates Me") and Bowling for Soup ("Girl All the Bad Guys Want") and in the urban corner there's Eminem's "Without Me" and "Ms Dynamite's "Dy-Na-My-Tee".

As ever there are bizarre inclusions: it's hard to imagine anyone listening to the likes of Liberty X or Britney Spears then getting deep down and dirty with Status Quo or Eva Cassidy but at the end of the day, diversity is the nature of this beast. --Georgina Collins

The "Now" series of compilations are never going to win any prizes for their originality or win any critical acclaim, but they are there to serve a purpose; and that is to enable us to have a copy of all of our favourite tunes of the moment without having to rush out and buy hundreds of albums. In my opinion, that is exactly what this latest offering from the series provides. The concept may be formulaic by now, but that is what we have come to expect, and in fact, love about these collections.
The only complaint about this compilation is that it may be trying to appeal to just too many tastes. There are little pockets of various music sectors together; the 'pop' section being Atomic Kitten, Blue and Darius, the 'serious' section being Coldplay, Oasis and U2, for example, but who in their right mind has put Eminem and Status Quo on the same side of an album???
Overall the compilation is a good representation of the best of the recent charts, it flows well (mostly) and is a good purchase.

Now 53 puts together the last three months of chart music and plonks on a double album that will probably be nesting in a few crimbo stockings this year.
Kicking off with euro-cheese from DJ Sammy and the unavoidable Ketchup Song could sound like a bad omen but things get better, with slick tunes from Sugababes and Blue, coupled with uplifting ones from Darius and Liberty X. Moving down the list of CD1 is pure pop including S Club Juniors, Kylie and Sophie Ellis-Bextor before abruptly moving onto trance music including the lovely "Because The Night" by Jan Wayne.
CD2 starts off with the indie heavyweights Coldplay, Oasis and U2 and great songs from Richard Ashcroft and the stunning "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton. Eminem makes a foray onto the CD, which had previously ignored his work, with the genius that is "Without me" followed by popppy sort of rock from Puddle Of Mudd and the wonderfully named Bowling For Soup. The CD rounds itself off with the inexplicable "Shiny Disco Balls" what on earth are they on about?
The Now Cds are always well worth the buy and it has bigger hits than the previous Now collection. And who else would have Eminem, Status Quo and Eva Cassidy all on the same CD?

As far as NOW! Compilations go, this good. Very good infact. We have all the pop hits on CD1 and on CD2 some of the more 'alternative' rockier tracks. However, where it does fall down is in the arrangement of them. So, for example, you were at a party and you slapped this on, you'd wonder why exactly those lovely people at NOW! have pushed Eminem to number 14 on CD2!
However where this Now! steps up is in terms of the amount of hits it brings with less of the songs that didnt chart. Few noticeable ones are the very random listing of Eva Cassidy's "Imagine" and Status Quo(!). Maybe there's some appeal to the older market here where I'm missing the point, however on the balance of things this is a fine summary of all the recent chart choons!

What can I say, a classic NOW! album fulfilling all expectatations generated from those before it. A blend of all things pop, R&B, rap, with some dance and some ballads. One to suit all tastes, I can't see it disappointing anyone. I bought this album along with two other recently released compilation albums. It was by far the best, with the widest range of music. I had always thought that NOW! albums consisted of pure pop, but recently have been swayed due to the inclusion of artists such as Eminem and Destinys Child.I gave it 5 stars without hesitating.

This album was special to me because this would be Trance's last regular appearance, Heaven was a real stormer to start with!

The rest at the end of the album, including Posse was brilliant

Such a real shame that these day the NOW! Albums are missing out on Trance, because of Indie making a comeback...

...well worth buying if you wanna remember the old days of clubbing

I was really happy with the CD; as a used product, it still plays fine, and it was delivered within 3 days. I paid very little, so I was expecting something of a lower quality. Though I may have wanted to know a bit more about the condition of the product (The cover has some minor blemishes) the discs are fantastic, so i'm really pleased.

I got this CD when I was 13, and it included all of my favourites.
Just listening to it now is such an amazing blast from the past. All my teenage memories come flooding back!
Sugababes, DJ Sammy, Eminem, Lasgo, Blue, Coldplay and all the best artists in 2002-3!
