4.0 out of 5 stars The pressure is on 18 Jun 2014
Format:Vinyl
11 – 4 – 3 – 1.
Tricky number sequence? Think of Chequered Flag [ZX Spectrum big-seller of 1984] and pole position. It’s chart-toppers I’m talking about and the fourth instalment of Now That’s What I Call Music only has one. And it’s nearly nine months old. Hello.

Having no serious rival was great while it lasted but this idyll could not last and the gauntlet was well and truly thrown down by with The Hits Album. The Now team had to cope with some heavy muscle from CBS and WEA and it’s fair to say that they came off second best.
Now 4 isn’t bad; in fact it’s got many great moments but what it lacks is the wow factor of the second and third volumes. We start somewhat incongruously with Arthur Baker’s special dance mix of Macca’s No More Lonely Nights. It’s a fine ballad in its own right but Ashley Abram had other ideas. This sideways shift is immediately rectified by three diamonds – Together In Electric Dreams, Bronski Beat’s fine follow-up Why? and Limahl’s finest moment. However Nick Heyward’s Warning Sign is just forgettable while John Waite’s Missing You would have been more suited to the Hits franchise. And speaking of Hits [you cannot write about Now 4 and not] – it’s got to be said that Thriller sans Vincent Price is still way better than the staid Farewell My Summer Love.

The second side prolongs the underdone vibe. The War Song ain’t no Two Tribes and the underdog in me would have gone for worthy follow-up The Medal Song [Sun go east! Sun go west!]. Elton’s Passengers has got some charm but Julian Lennon’s Too Late For Goodbyes is pretty insipid stuff. Disliked it at the time, hate it now. Heaven 17′s Sunset Now is marvellous though and a killer 45 from an much misunderstood album.
