All the "Now"s are great music!
Now! Vol. 10

"It must be difficult for the guys working behind "Now That's What I Call Music!". Since its debut (here in the States anyway- over in the UK they're already up into "Now 40" or something like that) in 1998, "Now!" has become the most successful compilation series in history for its timely up-to-date collection of the biggest hits. Four years into the groove, it's become more of a seasonal collection rather than a year or half-yearly collection. As a result, there aren't enough genuine hits to pad the constant flow, and the quality of "Now!" albums has certainly fallen recently. "Now! Vol. 10" is no exception to this rule- most of the songs were only minor hits or made no impact whatsoever. But it's the tracks that did get attention at radio that make the disc work so well. For starters, it truly does sound like an album from the summer of 2002. A couple of the songs had passed their peak, i.e. Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head" (she was already onto her next single "Love At First Sight" by this time) or Ja Rule's "Always on Time", but these spring hits still had resonance throughout the summer. And the big songs on here are genuinely good songs. "Can't Get You Out of My Head"- arguably the biggest dance song of the year next to DJ Sammy's "Heaven"- showed Americans just what they had been missing out on all these years that Minogue was a mega-superstar overseas, Enrique Iglesias' "Escape" is catchy in its own right, and the late Aaliyah's "More Than A Woman" is just as confident and sexy as her previous hits. Like any album attempting to summarize pop music in this generation, there are several weak spots (Marc Anthony's "I've Got You"? Honestly, now). But for those, especially teenagers, who lived through this period and paid attention to popular music, it's a wonderful time capsule and the perfect summary of the best- and worst- of 2002 Top 40."
Very fun upbeat album! One of the best NOWs!

"They made it to a 10th volume of Now in 2002! And this album is such a fun, upbeat album! It is high energy numbers the first 11 songs before slowing it down a bit and picking back up. Britney Spears' funky Overprotected weaves very well into Kylie Minogue's Can't Get You Out of My Head! Then another pair comes in as rival Latin stars Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony's songs come on tracks 3 and 4. Some Now collections have some hits and misses, but this collection is so consistent. It's good when certain songs balance well back to back such as Jennifer Lopez, Paulina Rubio, Baha Men, Aaliyah, B2K and Ja Rule's songs do. Musiq's smooth Halfcrazy and Lenny Kravitz's moving Stillness of Heart are the strongest ballads on here. Nickelback's How You Remind Me closes the album out in a big way too! This is just as strong as Now 5 two years before it. I still listen to it sometimes, yet manage to keep up with 2004 and 2005 albums as well. Fun, bouncy, addictive!"
