This is a great cd with lots of great new artists some of the songs are for the comic relief and lots of great famous new artists. Such as lily allen and lady gaga.
It even includes the x factor finalist Alexandra Burke with her new song Hallelujah.

There are 22 songs on the 1st cd featuring artists such as

Flo Rida
Alesha Dixon
The Saturdays
Kelly Clarkson
Taio Cruz
Britney Spears
The Saturdays
Katy Perry

The socond cd includes artists like

Take That
Alesha Dixon
James Morrison
The Killers
The Script
The Prodigy
Lil Wayne
Kanye West
Justin Timberlake

These 2 cds are just one great track after another. I would recommended this CD to everyone who wants to complete their NOW collection with this latest installment, or music fans who wants to own some of the most popular songs from the last 3-4 months. The inlay has a list of the song tracks on the back and on the front has the title in a nice bright yellow colour and has different coloured flowers. Its very colourful and stands out from the rest. The lyrics are good on some of the songs and some of the songs im not that keen on but i think you get that with most cd's anyway. I like pretty much most of the songs on the c.d only a few rubbish ones that i dont like. But its all down to your own individual tastes really. Its a great c.d in my eyes any way!

This cd certainly takes pride in my now collection.

You could use a fair bit more comment on the individual tracks and overall selection.

Genre Rock & Pop

Additional notes

Album Notes Despite concerns that the pick-and-choose nature of the download market would render major hits compilations obsolete, the Now That's What I Call Music brand, now in its 26th year, is still as strong as ever. Now, Vol. 72, the first hits collection of 2009, does exactly what it says on the tin, with 42 Top 40 multi-genre hits, from the electro-pop of Girls Aloud to the sleek R&B of Ne-Yo to the acoustic chillout of Jason Mraz. Of course, each Now album is only as good as the chart hits themselves. In a vintage period for female-led pop, Alesha Dixon's "Mambo #5"-inspired "The Boy Does Nothing" and Lily Allen's dreamy electro-ballad "The Fear" are the highlights of the more commercial disc one, alongside Kid Cudi's infectious dance/hip-hop crossover "Day 'n' Nite," Kelly Clarkson's return to form "My Life Would Suck Without You," and Lady GaGa's world-dominating number one "Just Dance." The inferior second disc veers into more guitar-based territory with the Killers' new wave-influenced "Human," Take That's epic Coldplay-esque "Greatest Day," and James Morrison's heart-tugging duet "Broken Strings" sitting alongside long-awaited comeback singles from the Prodigy and U2. But like every Now album, there are a few tracks that don't exactly represent the current pop climate in an entirely positive light. The X Factor Finalists' cover of Mariah Carey's "Hero" is horribly schmaltzy, even by reality TV's low standards, while Bryn and Nessa's Comic Relief version of "Islands in the Stream" may be fun to watch, but on record is nothing more than bad karaoke. Overall, Now, Vol. 72 sticks rigidly to its winning formula, ensuring that although there are few surprises, its eclectic collection of hits should mean there's something for everyone. ~ Jon O'Brien
