I purchase every Now album the moment they become available. I do this because I am a DJ and even though I may own digital copies of Top 40 hits as soon as they release, I like to have physical copy backups. Also, the Now series always offers clean versions of the songs, if not the radio-edit clean versions. For this reason, the Now series is a staple of my music collection.

Now 49 is the February 2014 release of the NOW music US series. While I would love to see the Now series more on the forefront of what is popular and what is soon to be popular, this release is clearly struggling to catch-up with the mainstream Top 40 charts with songs like Britney Spears' 'Work Work', Drake's 'Hold On, We're Going Home' and Miley Cyrus' 'Wrecking Ball' already dating the album on release day. Most of the tracks here were released in 2013 and many have already worked their way off of the current Billboard charts. There are notable exceptions - Pitbull/Ke$ha's 'Timber', OneRepublic's 'Counting Stars', A Great Big World/Christinia Aguilers' 'Say Something', and Lorde's Grammy-winning 'Royals' still sitting in the current Top 10.

Now 49 is another great grab-bag of pop songs, but I really wish the Now series would do a little more forward thinking with their releases. I used to buy these albums to pick up a few tracks I didn't yet have (or was unable to get the clean version), now I'm picking them up as backup hard copies since I already have all the songs. With how fast the pop music industry moves, it would be nice to see Now planning accordingly - maybe releasing a double album every so often in order to keep up, so they don't have catch-up releases like this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation February 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD
If you listen to a lot of Top Forty radio, you probably know most of the tracks here already. Perhaps some may even be tired of hearing them already. Still, this is a great summary as usual of what's out there featuring a lot of familiar names. J.T. and Bruno Mars appear once again here but their respective tracks aren't really among their stronger songs. And for the first time, an additional Now What's Next track has been added bringing the total track count to 21. All 5 of those tracks sound good but again it's wait and see. Both casual and die hard fans will enjoy this collection.

Billboard Hot 100 peak positions (first 16 tracks):

Timber- #1
Royals- #1
Wrecking Ball- #1
Unconditionally- #14
Story Of My Life- #6
Say Something- #4
Demons- #6
Counting Stars- #2
Hold On, We're Going Home- #4
Do What U Want- #13
Work Work- #12
