3.0 out of 5 stars Too Up-to-Date
Obviously they want to sell lots of copies so this compilation is focused post 2000 however where are the biggest number one acts of all time? Where are The Beatles, Madge and dare I say it Westlife?
Still worth 3 stars because there some good tracks in there despite the disappointment of so many missing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good set - Manufacture Error, 26 July 2012
By 
This review is from: Now That's What I Call a No. 1 (Audio CD)
Good set of tunes, enjoyed it. There is an manufacturing error though. If you select track 4 CD1, Patience, you will find the beginning few words are missing, where the track mark is in the wrong place. Play the CD from the start and you won't notice though. 5 stars as a set - lost one though for error.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'NOW' SERIES DELIVER'S ANOTHER ''GEM'', 17 Nov 2013

This review is from: Now That's What I Call a No. 1 (Audio CD)
ANOTHER SPLENDID COLLECTION OF FAVOURITE SOUNDS FROM THE 'NOW' SERIES.
Must admit I've only just come across this 3-CD compilation, so my
review is probably 'after the horse has bolted' for many readers.
However....Since the music charts came to be in '1952' there have been
over '1200' Number 1's....I wouldn't like to be the guy that was given
the job of selecting 60 numbers to put on a box-set of number 1's such
as this.....an impossible task, I'd think.
The result, because of a number of reasons including copyright issues of
course, there is many, many major artists and songs that couldn't even
be considered for such a venture......so, there are going to be essential
tracks not included on any such compilation......
On the cover it mentions that there are 31 million sellers on board,
glancing at the selection, I would guess without doing research that
all the tracks on disc three are probably among the 31, today because
of the down-load culture million sellers aren't quite so common as were
they yesteryear.
What is on board, is a pretty good selection of favourites despite
restrictions albums like this have to consider, I'd like to pin-point
one or two great numbers from each disc which, for me, made this a great
purchase....on disc one...'Adele' --'Someone like You'...'Take That' --
'Patience'...'Spice Girls' --'Wannabe'...'Blondie' --'Heart Of Glass'
...'All Saints' --'Never Ever'...'George Michael' --'Careless Whisper'
...and...'The Human League' --'Don't you Want Me'....just a few of the
many great sounds to enjoy on disc one, on disc two...'Rihanna feat. Jay Z.
--'Umbrella'...'Bruno Mars' --'Just the Way you Are'...'Cheryl Cole' --
'Fight for This Love'...'Fugees' --'Killing me Softly with his Song'...
(must admit this is another one of those songs that have been recorded
over and over again, the original number 1 was of course sung by 'Roberta
Flack'...love all the versions I've heard in truth)...'Kylie Minogue' --
'Can't Get you out of my Head'...'Oasis' --'Don't Look Back in Anger'...
and...'Coldplay' --'Paradise'...again just a small mention among the many
favourites on disc two....on disc three...'Elvis' --'Jailhouse Rock'...
'10cc' --'I'm Not In Love'...'Culture Club' --'Do you Really want to Hurt Me
...'Soft Cell' --'Tainted Love' (another number recorded many times since
this version was released....for me, this remains the best of them)...
'Kate Bush' --'Wuthering Heights'...'Adam & the Ants' --'Stand and Deliver'
'The Animals' --'House of The Rising Sun'...and...'Louis Armstrong' --'What
a Wonderful World'....again just pointing out a few of the terrific tracks
on disc three.
Overall I have to say I've only highlighted half a dozen or so from each
of the three discs, check out the track list, I'm sure you'll find plenty
of much loved material to tempt you into purchasing the compilation for your
collection.
Many collectors like myself will almost certainly already own, much, of, if not
all the sounds on board, however, I myself find listening to a selection of
all-time-favourites such as this, presented in different track order and
song selection quite refreshing,.......enjoy.
