Format:Audio CD
Clearly, listening to Now 38 feels like listening to the radio as it is TODAY. These are pretty much all current hits. And for a change, I must say, some of the 'now next' tracks are actually REALLY good and should totally get airplay in the near future, but that hasn't happened yet.

Just want to point out some versions for those purchasing this disc. On the plus side, you get the actual hit version of Katy Perry's ET including Kanye West, who wasn't featured on the original album version. Next, they've included the 'original' mix of More by Usher. At least in New York, the ONLY version that has ever gotten airplay is the "Red One" remix, which has more of an electro dance feel. For me, that mix is the 'hit' mix, so those who feel the same might be very disappointed by the mix included here. It's a great version as well, but it doesn't have the same driving beat.

Finally, F*ing Perfect by Pink is NOT the "Less than Perfect" resung lyrics version that is the only version ever played here in NY. Instead, it is the explicit version with the F word blanked out! Sounds horrible that way and I'm shocked they didn't include the Less Than Perfect version instead. Considering they used the hit version of Cee Lo, "Forget You" instead of bleeping out the explicit version, I'm not sure why they opted for this distractingly censored version of Pink.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now Vol. 38 May 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The four Now What's Next tracks aren't bad but as always it would have been nicer to include more of the songs that most of us know already. Also for the first time since Now Vol. 26, there are no country tracks included here. This is also the second straight volume without a rock track. As usual, this collection is great for keeping up to date with what's on the airwaves these days. Here are the peak positions on the Billboard Hot 100 for the tracks.

Born This Way- #1
Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)- #4
S&M- #1
Hold It Against Me- #1
Blow- #7
Grenade- #1
E.T.- #1
F***** Perfect- #2
Coming Home- #11
Look At Me Now- #6
Down On Me- #4
The Time (Dirty Bit)- #4
More- #15
Rolling In The Deep- #1 (this week)
Forget You- #2
What The Hell- #11

5.0 out of 5 stars This is pop music, right NOW! May 9, 2011
By CD Dude
Format:Audio CD
Not sure why some people bash on NOW albums. If you don't like pop music, then move to something else. NOW is meant to be a moment in time...a snapshot of pop music at that moment. I judge it simply on that...

5.0 out of 5 stars best of my collection so far July 6, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of now collection but so far this is the best among my purchases. Buy the used one, no big difference (mine was a cracked case) and you save a little bit of money.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOW CD's Need To Return To 20 Top Song Format August 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The NOW CD concept was great, but the recent CDs, including #38 give you less hits by substituting "preview songs" for the last 4 songs on the disc. This is a lousy idea because you only get 16 hits instead of 20. So far, none of the "preview" songs have become hits. This is just one more example of how the consumer now gets less value for their buck.

Much cheaper to purchase all the current hits on one CD than spending a bundle to purchase each CD separately.

3.0 out of 5 stars Now 38 June 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All just what I expected, I have loved the whole Now series. The only thing I would change is the Katy Perry ET to her verision only without Kenyne West, he kinda ruins it in this version.
