5.0 out of 5 stars The best NOW ever released!, 10 May 2004
This is the best NOW ever released, includes all my favourite hits from November 2003 to April 2004 and is the real reflection of the latest charts.
Track Listings
Disc: 1
1. Britney Spears - Toxic (No.1) Britney's back and she's stronger than ever!
2. Kelis - Milkshake (No.2) Kelis greatest song ever! She manages to make you dance all night long.
3. Jamelia - Thank You (No.2) Excellent lyrics, great melody... awesome song!
4. Kylie Minogue - Red Blooded Woman (No.5) This is one of Kylie's best songs in the latest years. It deserved to get higher than only No.5.
5. Justin Timberlake - I'm Lovin' It (Download only) A huge hit if it was released as a single.
6. Enrique Iglesias feat. Kelis - Not In Love (No.5) First top ten for Enrique since 2002's "Escape" made No.3. Kelis maximize the potential of the hit.
7. The Black Eyed Peas - Shut Up (No.7) My favourite B.E.P. hit, followed in March 2004 by No.6 "Hey Mama".
8. 2 Play feat. Raghav & Jucxi - So Confused (No.6) Great dancehall single.
9. Beenie Man feat. Ms. Thing - Dude (No.7) This is the only Beenie Man song that I like... it's a very good hit.
10. Peter Andre - Mysterious Girl (No.1) Re-issued in February 2004, originally a No.2 hit back in the summer of '96.
11. DJ Casper - Cha Cha Slide (No.1) Released on March 1st, the single was only blocked from the top-spot by Britney Spears' "Toxic", but reached No.1 a week later switching possitions with Britney's hit.
12. Girls Aloud - Jump (No.2) Originally a hit for the Pointer Sisters back in the 80's, Girls Aloud manage to make a better version even when the hit keeps its 80's electropop sound.
13. Boogie Pimps - Somebody To Love (No.3) One of the greatest dance hits of the year to date!
14. Atomic Kitten feat. Kool & The Gang - Ladies Night (No.8) Released for Christmas week, the song faced huge competition with christmas hits and ballads and so it made Top Ten.
15. Emma - I'll Be There (No.7) ex-Baby Spice seems to be the most successful of them! She survived through the years to be the only Spice Girl to have 3 consecutive Top 10 hits in 2003-04.
16. Sophie Ellis-Bextor - I Won't Change You (No.9) Good pop song, "Mixed Up World" was better.
17. Scissor Sisters - Comfortably Numb (No.10) Great dance hit.
18. Deepest Blue - Give It Away (No.9) Love Deepest Blue, hope they continue makin' such great hits.
19. LMC vs. U2 - Take Me To The Clouds Above (No.1) The first No.1 dance hit since Tomcraft's "Loneliness" in April 2003.
20. Special D - Come With Me (No.6) Very similar to Scooter's biggest hits.
21. Ultrabeat - Feelin' Fine (No.12) Only blocked from the top ten by Christmas hits (released on Christmas week).
22. Motorcycle - As The Rush Comes (No.11) Great undersold dance hit.
23. Ferry Corsten - Rock Your Body Rock (No.11) Great undersold dance hit.

Disc: 2
1. Will Young - Leave Right Now (No.1) Pop Idol's winner's best song to date.
2. Katie Melua - The Closest Thing To Crazy (No.10) Katie's debut is smart and fresh.
3. Norah Jones - Sunrise (No.30) Just like Katie Melua and Jamie Cullum, Norah Jones is the kind of artist who has no singles chart career... why? because everybody's got their albums.
4. Blue - Breathe Easy (No.4) Smart ballad, great song, huge hit.
5. Kelly Osbourne feat. Ozzy Osbourne - Changes (No.1) Daddy and daughter song... a huge hit back in December 2003.
6. Blink-182 - I Miss You (No.8) Blink's return to the top ten. Their first and only top ten hit was "All The Small Things" (No.2 in 2000).
7. Busted - Who's David (No.1) Follow-up to No.1 "Crashed The Wedding" is this good hit.
8. Fountains Of Wayne - Stacy's Mom (No.11) Amazing song! Thought it would make top ten.
9. Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out (No.3) good rock.
10. Alistair Griffin - Bring It On (No.5) Sweet song.
11. Sugababes - Too Lost In You (No.10) Master-piece! Excellent.
12. VS - Love You Like Mad (No.7) Good R&B pop hit.
13. Joss Stone - Fell In Love With A Boy (No.18) Amazing but shamely undersold hit... go on Joss!
14. FYA feat. Smujji - Must Be Love (No.13) Good hip-hop song.
15. N.E.R.D - She Wants To Move (No.5) NERD's first ever top ten hit. Excellent song.
16. Jamie Cullum - Frontin' (BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge) (No.12) It deserved to be a top ten hit.
17. Keane - Somewhere Only We Know (No.3) Sweet and slow.
18. Snow Patrol - Run (No.5) Coldplay wannabes... but they're great.
19. Alex Parks - Maybe That's What It Takes (No.3) beautiful.
20. Ronan Keating - She Believes (In Me) (No.2) don't care about this one.
21. Michelle - All This Time (No.1) beautiful ballad.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful love song that remains in our hearts, 26 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Leave Right Now (Audio CD)
Will Young's UK No.1 single "Leave Right Now" is one of the most beautiful love songs ever made! The melody fits perfect Will's wonderful voice and the song proves why he was Pop Idol's winner.
Released as the first single out Will Young's second album "Friday's Child", "Leave Right Now" spent 2 weeks at No.1 back in December 2003 and was followed in March 2004 by "Your Game", a No.3 hit which has a soul sound feeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Step Closer to rock superstardom!, 23 Mar. 2004
This review is from: One Step Closer (Audio CD)
"One Step Closer" is the first ever material we knew from Linkin Park back in 2001. By that time, a new kind of rock was dominating the world, a mix between punk, rock and hip-hop used to rule the music business and the first taste of that new style started to be heard thanks to bands such as Limp Bizkit or Papa Roach.
Just when we were thirsty of this new sound and needed new acts to come from the rock camp, Linkin Park made its own spectacular appearence with a song as powerful as a thunder.
"One Step Closer" is the first single taken from the album "Hybrid Theory" and showed us a different band, Linkin Park was unique and fresh and was ready to kick ass!
Since then, they rocked the world with a string of hits: "Crawling", "Paper Cut", "In The End" and "Points Of Authority" all were taken from "Hybrid Theory" and all made it into the Top 20, being the most celebrated ones "In The End" which stormed at UK No.8 and "Points Of Authority" landing at UK No.9 (and both of them are Linkin Park's biggest hits to date).
After the success of the first album the band released an amazing remix LP including new versions of their songs, previously unreleased tracks and PC media sections: "ReAnimation" was released in the middle of 2002.
Almost one year passed and Linkin Park was ready to return to the music scene. With the new album "Meteora" (released 2003), the band delivered 3 awesome hits: "Somewhere I Belong" made UK No.10, and both "Faint" and "Numb" reached UK No.14.
You ought to buy this CD-SINGLE, is the one which began it all, but I warn you, when you start to listen to Linkin Park, you can't help stop listening all day long!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Undersold Ballad!, 22 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Try (Audio CD)
Nelly Furtado's latest single offering "Try" it's exactly what a music lover could look for: a beautiful ballad with perfect melody and a sweet voice.
What it turns to be a shame is that the single was very undersold. Released this week, I expected it could reach a very well deserved Top Ten position to repair the damage when her previous single "Powerless (Say What You Want)" (an excellent song) made a disappointing No.13. Not only this single didn't make Top Ten, it couldn't make better than its predeccessor and stalled at No.15 this week.
Maybe you people keep buying crap like Usher (who made No.1 this week), but you'll never deny that Nelly Furtado is hugely talented and has potential, and this is reflected in her material.
The single also includes an Acoustic Version of Nelly's 2001's No.5 hit "I'm Like A Bird" and the amazing video of "Powerless (Say What You Want)".

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Songs!!!!, 18 Mar. 2004
This review is from: When You Kiss Me / Up! (Audio CD)
I think both "When You Kiss Me" and "Up!" were excellent selections for songs to be released as a single.
Luckily we got both packaged into one, being able to enjoy the songs in the form of the double a-sided "When You Kiss Me/Up!".
Apparently the public didn't see this as a good material, and the single failed to enter the UK Top 20.
Making No.21 in November 2003, this underrated single is a great option for music: you get the wonderful ballad "When You Kiss Me" along with the up-tempo radio friendly "Up!" in one single.
On March 29th 2004, her next single "She's Not Just A Pretty Face" is going to be released. I hope this can make Top Ten.

5.0 out of 5 stars The new "NOW Dance" is great..., 16 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Now Dance (Audio CD)
...I just hoped it would have more songs, but, whatever! The album is brilliant, not better than its predecessor, but it's great.
Including recent pop/dance hits such as "Red Blooded Woman" by Kylie Minogue or Kelis "Milkshake" this is a great party album for the beginning of 2004!
The only disappointing additions are the hip-hop ones, like "Breathe Don't Stop", this song is awful, or "Dude" by Beenie Man, which is OK but doesn't fit with the album's style.
My favbourite songs from the album are Justin Timberlake, Boogie Pimps, Angel City feat. Lara McAllen, UD Project, VS, Ultrabeat, LMC vs U2, Motorcycle, Ferry Corsten, Lasgo, Kelly Llorenna, Milk Inc. (the last three remind me a lot to 2002!) and Groove Armada.
The great miss on the album is Deepest Blue new hit "Give It Away" is great and I thought they'd put here.
Also I'm disappointed because they included "Cha Cha Slide" by MC Jig and not DJ Casper version which became hugely popular everywhere.


She's Not Just a Pretty Face
She's Not Just a Pretty Face

5.0 out of 5 stars The 6th (!) Shania single-off the "Up!" album, 16 Mar. 2004
"She's Not Just A Pretty Face" is Shania's 6th single taken from her last album "Up!". The song is kind of 'girl power' anthem and it was one of which caught my attention when I first heard the entire album back in December 2002.
The melody was really good and the lyrics were good too, so it was pretty obvious that this was going to be released as a single.
In the US, the single was a minor success in the pop charts, and came at No.10 in the Country Top 20.
Finally released in the UK, I hope this could mark the return of Shania to the Top Ten, as her last 2 singles missed it!
Though she does not have airplay on Radio 1, she always manages to enter the charts, and every single she released in the UK, made into the Top 30.
These are all Shania's hits and their peak position on the UK Top 40 Singles Chart:
"You're Still The One" No.10 in 1998
"When" No.18 in 1998
"From This Moment On! No.9 in 1998
"That Don't Impress Me Much" No.3 in 1999
"Man! I Feel Like A Woman!" No.3 in 1999
"Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)" No.5 in 2000
"I'm Gonna Getcha Good!" No.4 in 2002
"Ka-Ching!" No.8 in 2003
"Forever And For Always" No.6 in 2003
"Thank You Baby!" No.11 in 2003
"When You Kiss Me/Up!" No.21 in 2003
"She's Not Just A Pretty Face" I hope it can make Top Ten
The single is released March 29th 2004, buy it, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Great!, 5 Mar. 2004
This review is from: The Woman In Me (Audio CD)
This is really great! Is the first country album I've ever owned and I love it! When I bought it back in 2001 I didn't know what to expect, I just thought it would contain a lot of country crap and cheesyness, but it turned to be an excellent country ballads album with a few rock moments.
My favourite songs on the album are "(If You're Not In It For Love) I'm Outta Here!", "Any Man Of Mine", "No One Needs To Know" and "God Bless The Child".
The album sold amazingly great in the USA and won a lot of Grammys in 1996. In the UK it was re-issued in 2000 and the come-from-nowhere success it had is unexplainable, it reached No.9 in the Official UK Top 40 Albums.
Buy it, because it's great, you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great caribbean song!, 3 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Turn Me On (Audio CD)
Kevin Lyttle's "Turn Me On" was one of the greatest summer-feeling hits from October 2003 to February 2004!
It made UK No.2 back in October 2003 and remained on the UK Top 40 for 16 (!) weeks, being a huge seller.
Is one of my favourite tracks of 2003 and this single is a must have for any summer lover (though it was released in the autumn).
Buy it because is great and you'll be dancing to it all day and night.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great 60's feeling track!, 3 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Maybe (Audio CD)
Following her mid-2003's No.5 hit "Free Me", Emma released this new 60's dancey "Maybe" which is great and catchy.
This single has a very good sound and is one of my favourite tracks of late 2003.
The single made very well on the UK charts, as it scored a great No.6 position back in October 2003.
This excellent track was followed in early 2004 by the release of a third single "I'll Be There" which came at UK No.7.
