      A decent Now compilation

      Now 60 was the first Now That's What I Call Music compilation CD to be released in 2005. I personally wasn't that enamoured with chart music in 2005, although there are some decent tracks on this compilationfrom the start, and it goes to show that even a year where the music doesn't really impress you can hold a pile of gems in its first part. The CD, as with the majority of Now CDs, features a good mix of regular chart music as well as a good selection of dance and RnB tracks which don't usually feature quite so heavily.


      Disc 1 starts off well, wth Gwen Stefani's What You Waiting For? and is followed immediately by Sunset Strippers' Falling Stars, which I found catchy. Kylie, McFly and Nelly round off a good start. I wasn't a fan of Joss Stone's Spoiled or Geri's Ride It, but Girls Aloud's version of the Pretenders classic I'll Stand By You was well received and Shapeshifters' Back to Basics was a good addition. The rest of the tracks are okay, and I actually quite liked this disc.

      The second disc starts off with U2's Vertigo, which is considered a great hit, although I definitely didn't like it when compared to some of their older stuff. It's still a decent track, though. With The Killers and Stereophonics and Keane following up with more band hits, the second disc did start off well, and the inclusion of some nice tracks such as Lucie Silvas' Breathe In and the collaboration between Brian McFadden and Delta Goodrem produced the brilliant Almost Here. Tony Christie's Amarillo was an annoying track to say the least, but it got people up and out of their seats, dancing and raising money for charity, so it's alright by me. Not so much of a fan of Darius' Live Twice or Jo Jo's Baby It's You, but the rest of the tracks are decent enough on this disc.

      Overall, this is a decent offering from the Now crew, with some gems mingled in amongst it. I do enjoy listening to this compilation. Perhaps it is the memories it stirs from the first part of 2005 or just the fact that some of the music is just very good. There are a few song choices I wouldn't have made, but then you can't please everyone, especially where the Now compilations are concerned, as they do go on the chart results to a large extent. A decent release, Now 60 is currently available from amazon.co.uk for around the £3 mark for a new copy.

      solid abum

      You really cannot go wrong with the Now albums, they have been around since the eighties and they always sell brilliantly. In the days of the digital age, they are still selling well on CD and it is easy to see why. You get two discs crammed full of some of the biggest current hits. It will save you money if you had intended to go out and buy the tracks individually.

      Tracks: There are 43 tracks on this album, instant good value for money. Artists include Kylie, McFly, Akon, Joss Stone, U2, Atomic Kitten amongst others.

      Best tracks: Killers' 'Somebody Told Me' is a brilliant rock workout with feisty vocals and furious guitar riffs. Also check out 'Dakota' by the Stereophonics, their first UK number one single.

      Styles: You have pop with Kylie, Geri, Girls Aloud. You have r and b with Akon and Nelly, rock with U2 and Killers and er the novelty hit with Tony Christie, so all bases covered.

      Artwork: Usual Now! standard, pretty catchy and bright

      Price: You can pick these up in stores for about £13, possibly cheaper online

      Verdict: A solid album here
