Some great music & some not so great music. Not one of my most favorite Now cd's. Best songs: All Star by Smash Mouth & Lenny Kravitz's American Woman. :-)
Talk about a rush job!

"Being a huge fan of this series, I was excited to hear about a new collection.I immediately ran to the store to grab a copy,but upon picking it up I noticed right away there was only 10 songs!I'm sure we all remember 18 on the last.This is a very dissapointing collection.Half are great,three are ok, and there is two that are horrible.Save your money kiddies and find it used! Lets just hope Volume 4 will be better because lets face it,It can't be worse."

Why I'm Here - Oleander 16. Happily Ever After - Case 17. The Hardest Thing - 98 Degrees 18. Out Of My Head - Fastball Not bad, but check "Now 44" in the Search section for the British equivalent in this series. It has Mambo #5, Blue (BaDa Dee), ..Baby Hit Me, Larger Than Life, If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time, That Don't Impress Me Much, Kiss Me (6pence NTR), & many more including 4 solo Spice Girl tunes. And the price isn't that much more.Or if rock is your thing, check "Big Shiny Tunes 4", a Canadian import. Not a weak track on the album. No Backstreet Boys either."
3rd Time Not Such a Charm

"Well, we all loved the first two "Now"'s. They had a large number of tracks, as well as great selections, and a good variation of genres. Unfortunately, "Now 3" does not follow in the footsteps of its predecessors. With a limited selection of ten tracks, it gives you no more than 35 minutes of listening. Also, unlike the first two "Now" releases, "Now 3" offers no variation in genre. Genre listing- R&B- 5 / Rock- 3 / Pop- 1 / House- 1 / And the biggest mistake- Rap/Hip Hop- 0. Do they have any idea how many people won't buy this record because hip hop is not represented even once? The people who selected the tracks for "Now 3" must be the same people that run the three major networks. So this Christmas, don't bother buying "Now 3." Stick to the originals."

"Definately better than Now 2,but not as good as 1 and 4,this CD does offer a nice variety,though. My favorite tracks are "All I Have To Give","If I Could Turn Back the Hands of Time","Sometimes" and "Bailamos." Rock is represented to with the great head-banger song "Nookie." A great buy for some variety."
