4.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this hit seeker 6 Aug 2005
By Amanda Richards VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Having written a "So You'd Like To" Guide (on Amazon USA) on picking the songs for these albums, I usually do a quick check of my check list to make sure they haven't left anything out.
1. The "Boy Band" category is represented by the Backstreet Boys' excellent single "Incomplete".
2. The "Female Teen Queens" are represented by Anna Nalick with another good song "Breathe (2AM)"
3. For "Divas" and "Hot Female Singers" we have perennial favorites Destiny's Child; hot, hot, hot Gwen Stefani; and Ciara's Ludacris-assisted song "Oh".
4. The male division is somewhat overstocked this time, with Will Smith (can't resist "Switch"); Bobby Valentino; Eminem's best recent song "Mockingbird"; Baby Bash with Akon; crooner Frankie J; and not forgetting soulful John Legend;
5. Latino queen Shakira's "La Tortura" causes a stir all on its own.
6. Metal rocks and rock rules with Now Music favorite group 3 Doors Down; a huge track by Relient K; mega-hit "Mr.Brightside" by The Killers; that big Coldplay song "Speed of Sound"; and closed off by those funny Gorillaz.
7. The random acts fill out the album with tracks like "Thing"; "Girlfight"; and optional country entry "Making Memories of Us" by Keith Urban.
This one has enough bona fide hit credentials to be worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contains some of the best songs of 2005! 2 Feb 2006
By D. Hawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Most NOW compilations are hit and miss affairs (more often miss than hit), but NOW 19 has the distinction of having four of the best songs of 2005, regardless of your taste in music. Obviously, "Hollaback Girl" was unavoidable in 2005, and it had the added benefit of teaching everyone how to spell "Bananas." The second song of note was "1 Thing" by Amerie. Rich Harrison sampled the most amazing drum break of the year from The Meters and it elevated this song above so much other R&B. John Legend's "Ordinary People" was excellent in its simple piano and real life lyrics about relationships. And finally, the song of the year, whether you're tired of it or not, had to be "Feel Good, Inc." by the Gorillaz. It combined so many different elements into absolute musical perfection. These four songs, plus a few good others, make NOW 19 an essential purchase for anyone trying to feel the pulse of music in 2005.

3.0 out of 5 stars An average Now compilation. 7 Aug 2005
By botti fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think this is one of the better Now compilations to be released in recent times, but I think some artists were left off that should have been on here. Also, some of these songs have been way overplayed yet again (I guess that means they are hits, so then it would be appropriate to include them here)

Great tunes (although most were overplayed): Hollaback Girl, Switch, Oh, Mockingbird, Girl, La Tortura, Baby I'm Back, Breathe (Anna is actually really good), Incomplete, Let Me Go

I would say if you are not a fan of pop, you most likely wouldn't care for this CD since it's almost all in that genre. Overall, 10 out of 20 songs doesn't really seem to be worth a purchase for me, but it has a better chance of being purchased than the last Now CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best NOW's Yet 26 July 2005
By Michelle Whitney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have bought or listen to all the NOW CD's. I would say this is one of the best ones! You have the good hip-hop songs and alternative songs of today. Most of the songs are very upbeat and easy to dance to. When you are driving down the road, you want a CD that will be upbeat and able to keep you awake.

My favorite song on the CD is Hollaback Girl by Gwen. I like about 90-95% of the songs on this CD. My money was well spent!

My only suggestion for the next NOW...needs a couple more upbeat country songs. There are some great country songs out there..anything by Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Tobey Keith, etc. The song by Keith Urban was a good pick for this CD.

If you could only buy one cd, buy NOW 19.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half-decent, but gets old quickly 7 Aug 2005
By Sage - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This NOW album is better than now's 15-19, but it gets old within one time of listening to it.

Top 5 songs: Mr. Brightside, Feel Good Inc., Mockingbird, La Tortura, and Slow Down

5 Worst Songs: Hollaback Girl, 1 Thing, Incomplete, Girlfight, Oh

Songs That Should Have Been On Here: Lonely- Akon, Get Right- Jeniffer Lopez, The Clincher- Chevelle

Now 20 Predictions (notice the pop overload):

1. Beverly Hills- Weezer

2. Don't Mess With My Heart- Blackeyed Peas

3. Don't Cha- Pussycat Dolls

4. These Boots Are Made For Walkin'- Jessica Simpson

5. Touch- Amerie

6. Pon De Replay- Rihanna

7. These Words- Natasha Bedingfield

8. Cool- Gwen Stefani

9. Listen To Your Heart- DHT

10. Energy- Natalie f/ Baby Bash

11. Notice Me- NBRidaz f/ Angelina

12. Let Me Hold You- Bow Wow f/ Omarion

13. Pimpin' All Over The World- Ludacris

14. Summer Nights- Lil' Rob

15. Ride With Me- Pretty Ricky

16. We Belong Together- Mariah Carey

17. Badfish- Jack Johnson

18. Scars- Papa Roach

19. You and Me- Lifehouse

20. Fix You- Coldplay

As you probally noticed, the first nine songs in my prediction are all pop, and the urban music doesn't start until number ten, and this ends at number 16. The rock/ fake rock take up numbers 17-20, and there is no country(Because there are no current country hits). This gives my NOW 20 prediction a Now 10-ish look and feel to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is Just Really Great Music 30 Mar 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is probably one of the best of the NOW series because it features some really good songs. Here's a track-by-track review:

1. Gwen Stefani-Hollaback Girl: This is an okay hook, but that "bananas"

part is weird and the bleeping gets annoying. It was overplayed. B-

2. Will Smith-Switch: Nice to see Will make a comeback and this is the

perfect comeback single, with a terrific hook. A-

3. Amerie-1 Thing: The beat is the only thing that saves this otherwise

lackluster Amerie tune. C+

4. Ciara feat. Ludacris-Oh: This was overplayed, but Luda is awesome and

the hook is better than the one on "Goodies". B

5. Bobby Valentino-Slow Down: I'm not much for ballads, but this is an

okay song, pretty average at best. C

6. Eminem-Mockingbird: I like Eminem's slower songs and this is pretty good. The lyrics are very touching. A

7. Brooke Valentine-Girlfight: This was overplayed, but it has a good hook. Lil Jon is annoying, though. B

8. Destiny's Child-Girl: This is better than "Cater 2 U", but not

"Soldier". It's an okay song(for Destiny's Child). C

9. Shakira-La Tortura: Shakira's voice bothers me, but the beat is okay,

I guess. A little simplistic. So-so. B-

10. Baby Bash feat. Akon-Baby I'm Back: Some of this guy's other material

is alright, but this is just a smug, stupid song. C-

11. Frankie J-How To Deal: I don't like ballads and I hate this. F

12. John Legend-Ordinary People: This is an okay song, since it has

meaningful lyrics and the piano is good. B+

13. Anna Nalick-Breathe(2 AM): This is an okay song. That's all I can really say about it. B-

14. Keith Urban-Making Memories Of Us: I hate wuss country. F

15. Backstreet Boys-Incomplete: The beginning hinted at something better, but this just evolved into a sapfest. D

16. 3 Doors Down-Let Me Go: This is an okay rock song. A little whiney, but what 3 Doors Down song isn't? A-

17. Relient K-Be My Escape: A little bad, but I'll still give it a decent

rating. B

18. The Killers-Mr. Brightside: I really like this song a lot. It has a good new wave beat. A

19. Coldplay-Speed Of Sound: Okay, this was overplayed, but I still like it a lot because it's a good Coldplay song. A+

20. Gorillaz-Feel Good Inc.: Another of my favourites. This song is just plain addictive. A+

Overall, this is one of the better NOW entries and if you're going to invest your money into just one of these CDs, I would choose this.
