"NOW 2 is an OK CD. It just depended a lot on rock hits. Some of the songs were OK, New Radicals' "You Get What You Give" has irrestible lyrics and music, Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time" is good because it has a cool beat to it, and I really like 98 Degrees' song "Because Of You" because it's soft without getting to soft and it's got excellent lyrics. However, this album isn't perfect, and it shows featuring songs like R. Kelly's "When A Woman's Fed Up" which was never popular but still is very soft and the lyrics are kind of weird, Robbie Williams' "Millennium" is quite on my nerves because it is the world's most overplayed song, it has boring music and he doesn't have that great a voice himself, and where did Jay-Z's "Hard Knock Life" come from? I had never heard it in my life. And I can't stand Baz Luhrmann's "Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen", there is really no point to that crazy song! And as I said earlier, this album is quite balanced on rock, although the songs aren't bad, I like Everclear's "Father Of Mine" because it had a point to it, U2's "The Sweetest Thing" has very 'sweet' lyrics, and Semisonic's "Closing Time has cool music! I could, however, kick off the songs by Robbie Williams, Sublime, R. Kelly, and Baz Luhrmann and replace them with better songs. However, I also really like Blackstreet & Mya's "Take Me There" a lot! Overall, this was a good album other than the songs mentioned before. I would recommend it to someone who likes pop music. This is a pretty good pop/rock compilation CD!"

"If you like most alternative music you will enjoy NOW 2. I give this cd a five star rating because it has a great mix of new popular music. With great music by Semisonic, Everclear, Fatboy Slim, Cake, Sublime, Garbage, Sheryl Crow, and many more, who can resist? With my experience working at an alternative radio station, many of these songs were on our regular playlist or requested on a daily basis. So all in all NOW 2 is an awesome mix."
