1995 has gone down into pop music folklore with the rise of Brit-pop, particularly the rivalry between acts like Blur and Oasis, and classic albums like 'What's The Story Morning Glory', and Pulp's A Different Class being released. However, this exciting era in pop music created some memorable dance, rock, and soul tracks too, in which Now 30 delivers with abundance. CD 1 features a eclectic mixture of the pop music being made around the time, with classic tunes from Freak Power (Turn On, Tune In, Cop Out), The Boo Radleys (the ever-so-catchy Wake Up Boo!), The Human League (their forgotten gem, Tell Me When), and Oasis (Whatever). The rest of the disc is good too with its combination of pop and R 'n' B. So tracks from the likes of Janet Jackson, R Kelly, and Eternal are throw into the likes of boy bands (Boyzone, and East 17), established acts (Mike and the Mechanics, and Simple Minds), dance acts (Massive Attack, and Portishead), and material probably forgotten by those that were there (Scarlet's classy Independent Love Song) CD 2 acts more like a top-notch dance compilation, with such gems from The Outhere Brothers (Don't Stop (Wiggle, Wiggle)), Alex Party (Don't Give Me Your Life), and N-Trance (Set You Free). However, the albums provides a good snap shot of that music scene with tracks that may have fallen under the radar from nostalgia (Strike's excellent U Sure Do) amongst the more-established anthems from the era, like Kenny 'Dope' Present the Bucketheads' The Bomb (These Sound Fall into My Mind). Now 30 provides a solid slice of music from the mid-1990s, some of which is fondly remembered, and some of which are worth discovering if you happen to be a fan of this exciting time in pop music.
This is one of the greatest NOW albums ever made. When music was truly at its best! This album has the finest early dance tunes of 1994 and possibly the whole of the 90's. You can see just by the list of tracks its got the very best eary dance around. Perfect for Summer time, it has the most up beat and joyful tunes! Your mad if you don't have the urge to sing along or get up and dance!
Love the old now versions and this is no exception. If you want a blast from the past or to update your vinyl or tape then this is a good way to do it. Sometimes a bit pot luck with the quality but I use this seller as they always replace or refund
Loved this CD. I bought it years after its release as I wanted to fill gaps in my Now collection. Really glad I did as I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the tracks again, a great reminder of the past and most are relevant today.
