2.0 out of 5 stars Are these the hits ? 23 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This compilation isn't that good, is it ? Where are all the hits from 1999 ? The biggest of them all (Britney Spears) isn't on it. Now 1999 is also missing the company of Lou Bega, Eiffel 65, Ricky Martin, TLC, Christina Aquilera, Macy Gray, etc... Instead it's filled with almost-but-not-actual-hits like Billie and Lolly and other pop ... that just weren't good enough for a big chart position... What a shame, 'cause this is not what I call (hit)music...

2.0 out of 5 stars Song Choice and Licensing 4 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
Luciano, I think the reason most of those artists are absent from NOW compilations in general (they don't appear on any of the other 70+ NOW compilations either) is that the series is licensed by two of the four major record labels: EMI and Universal. Artists on Sony and Warner thus don't tend to be included. This includes Madonna (Warner) and Michael Jackson (Sony), along with quite a few others. The Hits series (which I believe is now defunct) used to be produced by the other two labels (or subsidiaries of them) and did include Madonna, Mariah Carey, Five, B*witched, etc. This is also the reason the scope has widened recently, as smaller labels have been swallowed up by the larger ones. The NOWs at this time were EMI, Polydor and Virgin, and Polydor has since become a Universal subsidiary (EMI know also owns Virgin btw).

There is a general bad song choice on this release though, if you compare it with the three NOWs from the same year, 42, 43 and 44. As other reviewers have mentioned, obvious big hits like 'Baby One More Time' by Britney Spears (on NOW 44), '9pm ('Till I Come)' by ATB (on NOW 43), more successful Geri Halliwell tracks (two No. 1 tracks on NOW 44), etc. have been left on in favour of lesser known tracks. NOW 1999 should be a selection of the best tracks from those three compilations, whereas this looks like a collection of the also-rans. Strange. A case of where it was done properly is the original NOW 1995 (not the Millennium version but the one from 1995) which picked up most of the major tracks from NOW 30, 31 and 32.

This in contrast is a poor effort, and you'd be better getting one or more of NOW 42 (spring), 43 (summer) and 44 (winter), depending on which songs you prefer.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1999 had greater hits than these ones 27 April 2003
By Luciano
Format:Audio CD
The hits included on NOW 1999 are great, and the album is filled with several No1 hits, but the most successive chart-toppers are not included...
Britney Spears made the No1 spot in February 1999 with "...Baby One More Time", and I personally think that this was the biggest hit of the year.
The album includes "Better Best Forgotten" by Steps, which is a Top 5 hit, when they could have included No1 hit "Tragedy".
Blondie's huge come-back with "Maria" isn't included and it's a No1 hit.
Backstreet Boys' first and only No1 hit "I Want It That Way" is missing.
Baz Lhurmann also made No1 with debut "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)".
The biggest dance hit of the year "9pm (Till I Come)" by ATB is not included.
Geri Halliwell made the No1 spot two times in 1999 with "Mi Chico Latino" and "Lift Me Up" but No2 "Look At me" is included on the album.
Westlife made the No1 spot 4 times in 1999, but the band is not included on the album.
Other No1's by Lou Bega, Eiffel 65, The Wmdue Project, Ricky Martin are not included...
The man behind the NOW series is Ashley Abraham, when he compiles the NOW series, he is sure of a couple of things...
He never includes on the series the following artists: MADONNA, MICHAEL JACKSON, CHRISTINA AGUILERA, WESTLIFE & FIVE (until 2001's NOW 50), A1 (until NOW Dance 2002 part II), B*WITCHED, MANIC STREET PREACHERS, EMINEM (until 2002's NOW 53), MARIAH CAREY, CELINE DION (I think he included her once with "The Power Of Love"), GARY BARLOW, THE FUGEES, and the list continues...
IT'S OBVIOUS THAT HE HAS HIS PREFERENCES.
