Format: Audio CD
This compilation comes out every year with just a couple of changes from previous releases, so if you bought it last year or the year before, it's probably not worth buying it again.

That said, this is a great Christmas compliation, sure to keep the party going, and at a decent price for a triple CD.

There are a few pleasant surprises included among the selection, such as Bert Jansch and Sinead O'Connor, but the usual suspects are there for the most part - John Lennon, Slade, Wizzard, etc.

I do have two slight gripes about the compilation though:

1. Many of the songs on here are not performed by the artists you would want to hear performing them. Nobody wants to here "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by anyone other than Mariah Carey, "Mary's Boy Child" by anyone other than Harry Belafonte or Boney M, or "Last Christmas" by anyone other than Wham! This problem is most apparent on the tracks which had originally featured on Phil Spector's classic Christmas album. Obviously there must have been licensing issues, because you would not choose any of the alternative versions provided here over Spector's masterpieces.

2. Too many of the songs are not actually Christmas songs. They may be very pleasant, and a bit wintry sounding, but among others, "Swinging on a Star" and "Winter Melody" are definitely NOT Christmas songs. ("Winter Melody" in particular is a deeply depressing song, and certainly has no place here - listen to the lyrics!)

To boil it down, this would have been better as a more focused double CD, but it should keep all but the most determined Grinches happy.

Well, I give this three stars as it's an above average Christmas album with a large selection of tracks, my only slight problem is while Amazon does list the tracks, it doesn't list the artists, so for example "All I Want For Christmas" is not the Mariah Carey version, it's a much less popular Samantha Mumba version, which isn't very good in my opinion, so basically just a quick warning to people, make sure you check exactly who's on the album if that matters to you, don't just assume it will be the most popular version of a song because it's on a "NOW" collection.

Anyway, all in all, still a good Christmasy album that should keep most people happy.

Looked around for a Christmas compilation that had all the favourites. This was the closest one. Disappointed with the versions of "Last Christmas" and "All I want for Christmas is You", and there was no Shaky! Anyway, I downloaded the additional songs I wanted and, with tracks from this compilation album, created my own playlists and burnt my own discs - job done. The bonus Christmas Carols disc is a nice addition.

I bought this CD because it had almost every Christmas song I wanted on it. The only disappointment is that Wham's Last Christmas isn't on it. There's only a cover of the song by State of the Heart on the 3rd CD. If the original version of Last Christmas had been on it, I'd have given it 5 stars.

Format: Audio CD
There have been a number of similarly-titled compilations through the years, both in Britain and America, all of them with very different track listings. So, in case there's any confusion, this review refers to the British triple CD originally released in 2006.

Many of these songs have appeared on previous compilations, not just in the Now series but in the Best Christmas in the world ever series and on other compilations. Nevertheless, as a package containing Christmas music from the fifties to the new millennium, this one is hard to beat. The obvious rival is another British compilation, Christmas Hits, which is now a 4-CD set including a CD of carols sung by choirs).

You'll find plenty of songs that have become familiar during the festive season in Britain as well as some less obvious selections. Some obvious classics are missing; you'll find most of them on Christmas hits, though I can`t help noticing that some classics (one example being Roy Orbison's Pretty paper) don`t appear on either, but they are not too difficult to find if you really want them. Comparison with Christmas Hits, shows some duplication of songs, but usually featuring different versions, so the original appears on one with the other featuring a cover.

With The Now series you know what you are going to get, a collection of great and not so great pop tunes which have graced the charts. Now XMAS is a collection 61 tunes which have done exactly that in this case the christmas charts for the last 45 years. Can you have a favourite yes, are you going to like everything probably not but pop fans can buy knowing that this is going to offer variety and top 10 ten tunes for every occasion.
