Smartly programmed and laden with hits from the first half of 2001, the seventh entry in the Now compilation series is a more-than-agreeable, summer-party soundtrack. Moving from up-tempo pop/R&B to various stripes of hip-hop (including a snapping Neptunes remix of Backstreet Boys'"The Call") to three draggy ballads you can easily program out to reminders from Aerosmith, Lifehouse, Evan and Jaron, and American Hi-Fi that guitars still exist, this disc is one of the strongest Nows yet. With the high-quality likes of "Jaded," Janet Jackson's "All for You," Nelly's "Ride wit Me!" (heavily edited for language), and Mystikal's "Danger (Been So Long)" on tap, even Jennifer Lopez sounds pretty good as the beats power by. Does the style-by-style sequencing effectively segregate genres, particularly by placing the rock stuff at disc's end? It's more likely that the appearance of all these tunes in one place demonstrates that the notion of pop as a big tent isn't dead yet. --Rickey Wright

Take a trip down memory lane. It's a great CD. It's good for a laugh while thinking about the taste in music of the nineties. It's a must-listen for old times sake.

"If you have read any of my other reviews about the NOW series, you know that I think the editing process has REALLY gotten out of hand, and it has AGAIN on this one. From track 8 (Nelly) to track 12 (City High), every song has one skip. Why put R. Kelly's "Fiesta" on this CD if every other word is skipped out? If they really wanted to edit something, why couldn't they take out that annoying guy in 3LW's "Playas Gon' Play" ("We're comin' through, shorty")? Overall, though, this is the best NOW CD. The songs chosen are pretty good, including "Survivor" (Destiny's Child), "In My Pocket" (Mandy Moore), and "Jaded" (Aerosmith). Some songs were serious errors of judgement, including *NSYNC's ridiculously syrupy "This I Promise You" and American Hi-Fi's sloppy ender "Flavor Of The Weak" (isn't the title of this song ironic in itself?). Keep the censors off of NOW 8, put in the same kind of music styles, and it will be the best ever!!!"
