Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The U.S. version of the Now That's What I Call Music series is often pegged as strictly kid stuff. There's no denying that many or most of the singles collected on volume 5 are beloved teen and preteen faves; even with a title cleanup, though, Mystikal's James Brown tribute "Shake It Fast" provides plenty of grownup kicks. As do Destiny's Child, Mya, and Kandi, whose delicious pop-R&B tracks trump the over-30 rock of Everclear's "Wonderful" and Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" for sheer radio wisdom. At the same time, the CD's reliance on cuts stamped from a small handful of templates suggests that a new mainstream revolution is just about due. Till then, the likes of "Don't Think I'm Not" and "Jumpin' Jumpin'" will do just fine. --Rickey Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars NOW go buy it! November 19, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
NOW 3 had a bunch of songs and bands that I never heard of, and NOW 4 was heavily on the pop side with very little rock (thanks for at least putting "All the small things" in there). NOW 2 was a little too much on rock in my opinion. That being said, NOW 5 has a great balance of pop (N'sync, 98 degrees, ect.)and rock (three doors down, nine days). The only thing I would do to this CD was give it a couple of rap songs (incomplete instead of thong song?????). But, since i know that the CD is aimed toward kids as well as adults, I can live with what they give us. I woudl also like to say that if I could, I would rate this CD a 4.5, not just a 4.OVERALL: NOW 5 is a good CD with a nice balance of pop and rock and is worth your money. Go buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars I WOULD have loved it-three months ago! November 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The idea of putting out a mix of music by great artists is of course a good one. However, this CD faces the same problem as many of the other NOW collections. By the time the CD is available in the stores, many of the "hip" songs are extremely overplayed. Either I own them on their original CD's, or I am so sick of them I can't handle hearing them one more time! This may not apply to everyone, but I've had this problem every time I've bought a NOW CD, even when I've done it right when they come out. This isn't a problem that can easily be solved, because obviously it takes a while to put a CD like this together, but before you buy this CD because it has has popular music, I would recommend looking at the list of songs and asking yourself how many you already have on other CD's and how many of the other ones you still WANT on CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best NOW CD There Is September 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, NOW 5 is the best one of the series...and I've listened to a bunch of them. It's my favorite because the year 2000 had some great music. These songs are from Summer 2000 mostly and they bring back a lot of great memories for me. I love it. My favorite tracks include Lucky, Wonderful, Una Noche, and It's My Life. Listen and see for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Variety! May 16, 2001
By Kristen
Format:Audio CD
I was actually surprised to see *Nsync on this compilation because they were on the Totally Hits Series before. But "It's Gonna Be Me" is a great way to start off the CD. I was happy to see Britney Spears' "Lucky", Destiny's Child's "Jumpin' Jumpin'", BBMak's "Back Here", Jessica Simpson's "I Think I'm In Love", and Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" on this CD as well. There are some really good songs on here that are worth getting NOW! 5 for. The ones I just listed are the best in my mind. It's also great to see one of music's greatest Pop/R&B singers on NOW! 5: Janet Jackson and her song "Doesn't Really Matter". The song kicks butt and you can't help dancing to it. I am sorry to say that there are two songs on this CD that are tired and somewhat annoying to me: Nine Days "Story Of A Girl" and 3 Doors Down "Kryptonite". But given the fact that there are songs I don't particularly care for, Now! 5 still gets 5 stars because of the variety of music it provides us with; ranging from Pop to R&B to Hip-Hop to Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now 5 November 16, 2005
By Lindsay
Format:Audio CD
Now 5! Is really good. Though the songs are kind of old, this is still an awesome Cd to listen to. Here is the list of tracks: (1.) It's Gonna Be Me by *N Sync - I don't like this song at all. (0/10 stars) (2.) Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche) by 98 Degrees - great, cool song with a Latin feel to it! I love this song and 98 Degrees has got some good, solid vocals. (10/10 stars) (3.) Jumpin' Jumpin' by Destiny's Child - I used to not like this song so much because it got overplayed. Don't get me wrong - I love Destiny's Child - but this is just not one of their better songs. (9/10 stars) (4.) Don't Think I'm Not by Kandi - a really good song by an R&B artist I never even heard of until I heard this song. Really good. (9/10 stars) (5.) I Think I'm In Love With You by Jessica Simpson - one of her better songs off of her 'Sweet Kisses' album. Very uptempo with good lyrics and vocals. (10/10 stars) (6.) Faded by SoulDecision - I like this song a lot! It's very good and SoulDecision is a great, underrated boyband. (10/10 stars) (7.) Shake It Fast by Mystikal - I don't like this song at all. (0/10 stars) (8.) Case Of The Ex by Mya - Mya's best! I'm a big fan of Mya and I think her music is great. (10/10 stars) (9.) Aaron's Party (Come Get It) by Aaron Carter - this song is really cool. It just didn't get the radio exposer it should have gotten. That's the only reason that most people probably didn't like it. (10/10 stars) (10.) Lucky by Britney Spears - not Britney's best. Even though I like Britney Spears, this song is a little boring. (7/10 stars) (11.) Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely by Backstreet Boys - the best ballad on the entire Cd! Strong lyrics and vocals. This song is the best and never gets old! (10/10 stars) (12. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Guilty pleasure April 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Most of these songs are (or were) WAY overplayed on the radio and having them on CD to listen to whenever I want is sort of a guilty pleasure, especially the tracks by Aaron Carter, NSYNC and Britney Spears. I hope that no one that I work with ever finds out I own this CD - I would be lashed 1000 times with a wet noodle.
My favorite songs are "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi, "Incomplete" by Sisqo, "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" by Nine Days, "Jumpin' Jumpin'" by Destiny's Child and "Kryptonite" by 3 Doors Down.
I do not like Jessica Simpson's blantant sampling rip-off and sugar coating of John Mellancamp's "Jack and Diane" and calling it "I Think I'm In Love With You". GAG!
This is a great collection for anyone with eclectic music styles like I have, it runs the gamut from bubblegum (Britney) to alternative (Nine Days) to R&B (Mya). The only question I have is where is the Christina Aguilera?
