I always buy the 'Now' albums because they contain about 40% of the Chart songs I've liked that season and it works out cheaper to just buy this album rather than buy each of those songs individually. Usually I'll check out the albums associated with the artist but most of them aren't as good as their reigning single. There's a fair few decent hits on this and it's better than some previous 'Now' albums released but there's still (as always) a disproportionate amount of urban hits compared to light, fun, pop songs which everyone knows. There seems to be an ongoing trend with old hits being re-released too (I can only assume this is because they know this year's X Factor single before everyone else or that there is an artist about to bring out some cover of it). A good collection for a 'Now' album with lots of hits but still contains a few too many 'misses'.

Bought this for my wife for her Xmas. Believe me i would not be buying this without a specific order from the overlord.
Insipid, forgettable over produced nonsense. I would urge any potential buyers to look elsewhere for musical inspirational as they will only find soul crushing talentless noise here. Broken Britain, and your welcome to it!!!

Altho daft punk are alright. They do one with Nile Rogers. Would be better of buying the best of Chic tho. Now that's what i call music!

Once again the team from Now have managed to assemble a collection of music that summarises the current state of popular music.
Although when released these albums are fairly comprehensive, they are by no means conclusive. Many songs and tracks that may have been popular with different genre groups are not found on the album, but with well over 300 new releases every year I think that the Now crew do a fair job of including the most popular and high charting tracks from all genres that make the UK Top 40 singles chart.

9 chart toppers just for starters. A good few others that also reached high chart positions. Good value ? You bet !!!

As with any large music collection, there will be tracks that you like more than others and vice versa. However, the makers have done a really good job with this one. Give it a whirl, you will not have to keep reaching for the button that skips tracks.

If the music is your scene, just buy it !!

Yes, do agree with less wasting of paper and easier packaging, but disagree with the fact that CD's arrive not wrapped in cellophane because they get scratched. This is for a Christmas pressie and the inside booklet had slid out to the edge of the CD, who-ever closed the CD caught the paper in its cover which is damaged. For someone receiving this it looks like a used CD. AMAZON please take note.

I thought this was a good compilation - it is the usual mixture and as I quite often find, I thought CD1 was better than CD2. The thing about the 'Now...' series, is that they can only work with the music available at the time, good or bad, but in this case they have produced a good mixture of current songs. I still think this series is great value considering the number of tracks included.

This is an excellent compilation, always including good songs. It is clear that sometimes they can not get access to all the hits but is a good effort. On this for instance I really miss "Thrift Shop" or "Can't hold us down" by Macklmore and Lewis, big hits I expected to be included and nothing happaned...in any case this collection is always...$%$ Awesome¡¡
