Now, Vol. 29

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Vol. 29 of the ubiquitous Now! series is a musical snapshot of mid-2008, comprised of 20 singles that were released during the spring, summer, and early fall of that year. Songs by the likes of Katy Perry, Lil Wayne, and Leona Lewis certainly don't illustrate the American climate during 2008 -- the economic downturn, the whirlwind presidential election, etc. -- but they do capture the state of mainstream American radio, from the hard-edged sounds of Saving Abel to the family-friendly pop of Leona Lewis and Jordin Sparks.

    Love the compilations of hit songs....

    NOW 29 is another great compilations of hit songs. I love the NOW series because it allows you to have the top hits without buying the whole CD for a person or group. It is a great way to hear someone's music and see if you like it enough to buy their individual CD. I prefer to purchase a CD over downloading the music from internet. This way I can have the CD playing on my computer, in my vehicle, loaded on my iPod, taking it with me to a friend's house or car. Great CD with great choices for songs!
