Now That's What I Call Music 42 is a must have for any music collection. It encompasses all types of music and is a feast for all musical tastes. Now 42 is a perfect party album - it contains 2 compact dics and a total of 40 songs which will keep the party going for hours on end. Now 42 contains hot acts such as Boyzone, Steps, Spice Girls, The Corrs, Robbie Williams, The Cardigans, Stereophonics, 911 and Blur. It includes number one hits such as "Praise You", "Believe", "Tequila" and "Fly Away". I highly recommend this album to music fans of all tastes!

Decade or genre compilations are often just too broad for my liking. Nothing transports you back to a moment in time like the 'Now' sets. You get almost all of the biggest radio hits from a particular few months of your life, and if that time was a good one, then all the songs become classics - regardless of their actual quality!

This compilation takes me back to my little cousin's 5th birthday party in April 1999. I was in second year at high school, and the only things I had to worry about in life were conquering video games on my PS1 and having enough money saved up from my paper round to buy my local football team's latest strip. 'Now 42' serves as a teleportation device back to a simpler time, and pop numbers like Steps' "Better Best Forgotten", Cher's "Believe" and The Corrs' "What Can I Do" - which I disliked as a young music snob - now bring tears to my eyes. There's quite a bit of dross (looking at you, Vengaboys, Cartoons and Mister Oizo), but hey, my trip back to 1999 wouldn't be complete without those vexatious numbers, which conjure up warm, fuzzy memories of youth.

Sentimentality aside, the Disc 2 tracks from Robbie Williams ("Strong"), Fatboy Slim ("Praise You"), Armand Van Helden ("You Don't Know Me"), Sterophonics ("Just Looking"), The Divine Comedy ("National Express"), The Beautiful South ("How Long's a Tear Take to Dry?"), Ladysmith Black Mambazo ("Inkanyezi Nezazi") and Blur ("Tender") remain great tracks. Lenny Kravitz's "Fly Away" and the Cardigans' "Erase/Rewind" were catchy radio hits but don't sound quite as potent today, while The All Seeing I's "Walk Like a Panther" is an underappreciated gem, penned by Pulp's Jarvis Cocker and delivered with gusto by legendary crooner Tony Christie. Dusty Springfield classic "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" is a delightful bonus, added as a tribute to the recently-passed singer.

On buying this CD i thought wow! This is amazing. All the hits on two excellent cd's. Usually my first impressions are wrong but this one was bang on the mark.
Including huge hits from Lenny Kravitz - Fly Away (from the Peugeot ad), Fatboy Slim's Praise You, 98's biggest seller Believe and the Comic Relief single When The Going Gets Tough as well as the song everyone loved Flat Beat by Mister Oizo. This cd is certainly jam packed with hits from start to finish. Taking in all styles with the likes of Armand Van Helden, Stereophonics, Cartoons and the lovely sounding Big Big World by Emilia this is a cd that is sure to please anybody.

Another Now Album from the NOW collection which is currently up to Now 79. Now 42 album like all in the collection has the essential songs from that year.

The Now collection is a great time line of what the music was like at that year.I'd been collecting the NOW albums and have all but a few. I like the songs on the albums I have I have decided to complete my collect this is why I brought Now 42. I pleased with the Album and will enjoy the songs mixed the other Now Albums in my collection.

I'd recomend to all who like a varied genre of music to try the Now Albums

CD's arrived promptly. Even after paying postage and packaging it still worked out as a great price. Instantly brings back great memories of the late 1990's

Why not add this one to you collection all the top hits from 1999 & I managed to get this one new & sealed. Not bad for a CD that's 10 years old.

Loved this CD. Bought it years after its release to fill gaps in my Now collection. Great foot-tapping hits of the past.
