This is one of the series' best collections. It is well-balanced with major hits from this past summer and a few songs that are currently at their peak. There are also some surprise gems among the megahits.
One of the Best of the Now! Collections
Some dismiss the Now! collections as over-played radio fodder, but some of that music becomes over-played for good reason. This is a top-notch presentation of the current status of pop music including such major summer of 2006 pop-dance hits as Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack" and Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man." However, if you dig a bit deeper there are gems here that are not over-played such as "Here It Goes Again" by OK Go, the treadmill video guys, and "S.E.X." from r&b master Lyfe Jennings.
Another Major Hit for the Franchise
This collection is nearly guaranteed to open at #1 on the pop albums chart with only Josh Groban likely to stand in its way. It will be the 10th #1 album from the franchise. Every collection since the first release has hit the top 10 of the album chart.

A Bit of New Life
The last Now! collection seemed to be getting tired, but it looks like some new life has been pumped into the regular releases for now. If you purchase a significant amount of pop music, you probably have many of these songs already, and this will not be a needed purchase. However, if you are among the many who purchase only a few albums each year, give this one serious consideration.
