Judging by this track listing this is a very good CD indeed, surpassing NOW 72, although I was a bit disappointed with the second disc. Some great songs are however mysteriously absent like Take That's top 10 "Said It All" (instead we get "Up All Night" which was much less popular), Britney Spears' "Circus", Lady GaGa's "Paparazzi", Enrique Iglesias feat. Ciara's "Takin' Back My Love", La Roux's current #1 "Bulletproof", Kelly Clarkson's "I Do Not Hook Up", "Pussycat Dolls' "Hush, Hush; Hush, Hush", and possibly others too. Quitting the trends from NOW 71 and NOW 72, no artists make a double appearance this time, which is a shame as I feel Lady GaGa especially had deserved two songs on this set.

I would still recommended this CD to everyone who wants to complete their NOW collection with this latest installment, or music fans who wants to own some of the most popular songs from the last 3-4 months. A piece of music history is captured, and I am sure will be cherished for a long time.

I purchased the NOW 73 Album to use in my college tutor group, I wanted something up to date but acceptable to most tastes. This album is doing the job for a 45+ teacher and 15 - 18 year old students ha! not liked by all but should I say tolerated as in an effort to accept I tried !!!

not 1 of the best of the series but not bad. only bought to add to my collection of now's. wish they would release 2/12 of the nows like they did with number 1 they were the best ones in the series.

Considering that the Now albums usually use the clean radio edits of songs, I was shocked to see that they'd included the full version of Britney Spears' "If You Seek Amy".

I think they sometimes forget that there are gaggles of 10 year-olds that buy these albums. I didn't really want my young daughter running around singing "all the boys want to eff-you-see-kay me".

I have everyone of the 73 Now That's What I Call Music volumes. I like this CD because it keeps my collection up to date. It lets me have all the up to date songs on one CD which saves me having to buy lots of different CD's. It is also easy for me to find any of the songs that I wish to listen to. The price of this CD was vey reasonable which encouraged me to buy it from you.

...a compilation album reflecting the hits of its time. Bought for my sister, she loves it. Cannot expect to love all the songs but perfect for parties etc.

normal pop drivel for the kids, nothing special, I would like to see some more British Bands included on the next one to give some variety.
