Now That’s What I Call Mu­sic 65 EMI ★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - REVIEWS - Kevin Court­ney

The Now! se­ries, started in 1983, has knocked all the oth­ers (such as Ronco and K-Tel) into a cocked hat, and is still the king of the chart com­pi­la­tions. Now 65 fea­tures all the ma­jor hits of the past six months, from the big sell­ers (Shakira and Wy­clef’s Hips Don’t Lie, Scis­sor Sis­ters’ I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’) to the heavy hit­ters (Amy Wine­house’s Re­hab, The Killers’ When You Were Young), from rap and r’n’b (Chamil­lion­aire’s Ridin’, Bey­oncé’s Deja Vu) to trance (Cas­cada’s Ev­ery Time We Touch, David Guetta vs The Egg’s Love Don’t Let Me Go), from driv­ing rock (Snow Pa­trol’s Chas­ing Cars, Kasabian’s Em­pire) to pure drivel (David Has­sel­hoff’s Jump in the Car, Westlife’s The Rose). I wouldn’t even call half of it mu­sic, but I’d def­i­nitely rec­om­mend it for the pop picker in your fam­ily.
