An average Now compilation.

"I think this is one of the better Now compilations to be released in recent times, but I think some artists were left off that should have been on here. Also, some of these songs have been way overplayed yet again (I guess that means they are hits, so then it would be appropriate to include them here)
Great tunes (although most were overplayed): Hollaback Girl, Switch, Oh, Mockingbird, Girl, La Tortura, Baby I'm Back, Breathe (Anna is actually really good), Incomplete, Let Me Go
I would say if you are not a fan of pop, you most likely wouldn't care for this CD since it's almost all in that genre. Overall, 10 out of 20 songs doesn't really seem to be worth a purchase for me, but it has a better chance of being purchased than the last Now CD."
Contains some of the best songs of 2005!

"Most NOW compilations are hit and miss affairs (more often miss than hit), but NOW 19 has the distinction of having four of the best songs of 2005, regardless of your taste in music. Obviously, "Hollaback Girl" was unavoidable in 2005, and it had the added benefit of teaching everyone how to spell "Bananas." The second song of note was "1 Thing" by Amerie. Rich Harrison sampled the most amazing drum break of the year from The Meters and it elevated this song above so much other R&B. John Legend's "Ordinary People" was excellent in its simple piano and real life lyrics about relationships. And finally, the song of the year, whether you're tired of it or not, had to be "Feel Good, Inc." by the Gorillaz. It combined so many different elements into absolute musical perfection. These four songs, plus a few good others, make NOW 19 an essential purchase for anyone trying to feel the pulse of music in 2005."

Half-decent, but gets old quickly

"This NOW album is better than now's 15-19, but it gets old within one time of listening to it.
Top 5 songs: Mr. Brightside, Feel Good Inc., Mockingbird, La Tortura, and Slow Down 5 Worst Songs: Hollaback Girl, 1 Thing, Incomplete, Girlfight, Oh Songs That Should Have Been On Here: Lonely- Akon, Get Right- Jeniffer Lopez, The Clincher- Chevelle
Now 20 Predictions (notice the pop overload): 1. Beverly Hills- Weezer 2. Don't Mess With My Heart- Blackeyed Peas 3. Don't Cha- Pussycat Dolls 4. These Boots Are Made For Walkin'- Jessica Simpson 5. Touch- Amerie 6. Pon De Replay- Rihanna 7. These Words- Natasha Bedingfield 8. Cool- Gwen Stefani 9. Listen To Your Heart- DHT 10. Energy- Natalie f/ Baby Bash 11. Notice Me- NBRidaz f/ Angelina 12. Let Me Hold You- Bow Wow f/ Omarion 13. Pimpin' All Over The World- Ludacris 14. Summer Nights- Lil' Rob 15. Ride With Me- Pretty Ricky 16. We Belong Together- Mariah Carey 17. Badfish- Jack Johnson 18. Scars- Papa Roach 19. You and Me- Lifehouse 20. Fix You- Coldplay
As you probally noticed, the first nine songs in my prediction are all pop, and the urban music doesn't start until number ten, and this ends at number 16. The rock/ fake rock take up numbers 17-20, and there is no country(Because there are no current country hits). This gives my NOW 20 prediction a Now 10-ish look and feel to it."
One of the Best NOW's Yet

"I have bought or listen to all the NOW CD's. I would say this is one of the best ones! You have the good hip-hop songs and alternative songs of today. Most of the songs are very upbeat and easy to dance to. When you are driving down the road, you want a CD that will be upbeat and able to keep you awake.
My favorite song on the CD is Hollaback Girl by Gwen. I like about 90-95% of the songs on this CD. My money was well spent!
My only suggestion for the next NOW...needs a couple more upbeat country songs. There are some great country songs out there..anything by Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Tobey Keith, etc. The song by Keith Urban was a good pick for this CD.
