Really great mixture of songs..the luck is in on the this one because there have been so many great songs out of late. I bought this to motivate me in the gym and have ended up putting it on in the car when I get out.

It occurred to me after I purchased Now 88 that the summer 2014 edition of the Now collection marks 20 years since I got my first Now CD as a young girl. My music tastes have changed a lot in that time, but one thing has not changed is Now's ability to put together a great mix of current chart music. Plenty of good recognisable tracks on this edition and this is getting a lot of airplay on my car stereo at the moment. Even the tracks I was not so familiar with I am playing. I am reluctant to give it a five-star rating because it is difficult to like every single track on a compilation CD, but it is a decent mix and it has put me in a good mood for the summer months.

This album is the perfect album for summer 2014. It is better than last year's summer Now album Now 85 and Now 87, but not as good as Now 86. It also has more Number 1's than any other Now album, with 15.

Having been a fan of the Now Compilations since I bought my first one as a teenager, now I am a mum myself and in my mid 30's I am still on the whole impressed with them.
This one is definitely a step up from Now 87(which wouldn't have been that difficult!!) and having received the cd today I am having a sneaky listen before I let the kids have it.
My main preference of music is Pop but this cd offers some of the years biggest pop hits, as well as dance tunes and a few other songs mixed in for good measure.
Some of the songs I read the names of and had no idea what they were(yes maybe my ages is catching up with me!) but listening to them I recognised them and enjoyed 95% of the songs of this cd.
A bargain a £11.99 for 45 tracks even if you don't like them all.
Something for everyone, and considering a single track is 99p each this is even more value for money : ) I now have th digital download copy and the kids get the cd to share. Definite thumbs up here.

Over the years I have had a few of the "Now" albums. I have to say that im impressed by the collection theyve put together for this one. I usually skip over numerous songs on the album, but I can honestly say there are probably only one or two that are not my cup of tea. Very impressed with the MP3 download too, although i still need to figuire that one out for my Samsung tablet. The App for the Iphone is simple enough to use though.

Bought this for my teenage daughter as a gift. She loves it and was keen to get me to listen too and if I'm honest, it is a really great collection of current pop music. It has sparked my interest in current music so I'd really recommend this to any fan of current chart music.

The worst one ever! It was rubbish! It came out in summer 2014 and when we think of a CD like that we should think it's got all of the songs from summer 2014 but it was a dissapoiment. why didn't they have the pitbull song wild wild love or the Cheryl song crazy stupid love.

Bought for my boys! They seem to like it! Really like that I could download it to my kindle for free at the time of order so I can try to know the music my kids are listening to!! I feel a bit of a nineties vibe to some of this music!! I'm not that old
- honest!!
