With already 6 chart-topping hits on its tracklisting, and still more to come (probably Will Young's "Switch It On" will reach the upper scales), the 62nd volume of the prestigious "Now That's What I Call Music!" comes nothing but stronger than ever!
This time with more surprises than you would expect from the Winter/Christmas edition of the series: hits by non-Now regulars come in tons here with Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff and Goldfrapp all making debuts on the compialtion despite having sizeable hits in the past, and the not so regulars, artists you often expect to make an appearence but most of the time they are not included, like Bon Jovi, aforementioned Will Young, David Gray, Mariah Carey, Elton John, Westlife and Depeche Mode amongst others.
This album like many other NOWs, has oldies but goodies, on this volume thanks to inclusions of Amerie, Gwen Stefani, U2, Mattafix and Akon, all of them smash summer hits.
Overall it is an excellent album with a great variety of music, its lack of dance music is probably the only thing I can criticise, but hey, nobody's perfect!
