Out of all the NOW CDs, this one is the best. Sure, the songs are "old" by now, but they were all big pop hits at the time of this CDs release, while, with the newer NOWs, only about half of the songs could really be considered big hits. Here's a quick overview.
1. "Together Again" - Janet: I never really liked Janet Jackson, but I did like this song. It has a really nice message, and it definitely deserved to be a hit
2. "As Long As You Love Me" - Backstreet Boys: OK, as a huge BSB fan, I'm biased toward this song. BUT, it really is a great pop song, with it's simple, nice melody, and cute lyrics.
3. "The Way" - Fastball: This was another huge hit way bakc in 1997. It's the type of song that you either a)Like it a lot at first, then get sick of it... or b)Hate it at first, but grow to love it.
4. "Flagpole Sitta" - Harvey Danger: One of THE best tracks on the album! I usually don't like this type of music (alternative/punk/pop mix), but this one is catchy as hell.
5. "Say You'll Be There" - Spice Girls: How could you have a compilation of the hits of the late '90s without including the Spice Girls? And whether you like the girls or not, this IS a catchy song!
6. "All My Life" - K-Ci & JoJo: A very pretty R&B ballad, and a big hit in 1997. Ballad fans just have to have this in their collection! Don't like ballads? Then this is filler for you.
7. "Never Ever" - All Saints: The only song by the psuedo-Spice Girls I ever liked. It has a really nice beat (it samples "Amazing Grace.") and the vocals are pretty good.
8. "If You Could Only See" - Tonic: This reminds me of all the hits that I hear today, by bands like Staind, Creed, and the like.
9. "Mmmm Bop" - Hanson: This song was essential for this CD.

I bought this album only knowing a few of the songs, but when I heard the other songs, I knew this was a great album! With great songs like Fastball's "The Way" and Backstreet Boys' "As Long As You Love Me", you can't go wrong! Janet's "Together Again" has a fun beat to it! I also liked Lenny Kravitz's song "Fly Away" because it had cool music and lyrics. I had never heard Everclear's "I Will Buy You A New Life" or Tonic's "If You Could Only See" some of the rock songs featured on the album, but they were good once I listened to them! Aqua's "Barbie Girl" has the coolest music, and I liked the album's swing track, Cherry Poppin' Daddies' "Zoot Suit Riot" because it had neat background music. This album has teen-pop, rock, swing, and R&B! It is great for the Top-40 listener who wants a pop compilation CD with variety! I liked it, and I know you will!

Being from the UK and being pretty much spoon fed with the Now series for music it surprised me that the most advanced country in the world was only just starting out with this series but regardless of how long its been going this a really good cd.
Obviously when i bought the CD i had not heard all of the songs had not been hits in the UK so it may have been a bit of risky purchase despite knowing the biggest majority of them. Of the songs i had heard my favourite was the sweet soul harmonies of K-Ci & JoJo's All My Life.
To my surprise though my favourite songs turned out to be the ones that i didn't know. Flagpole Sitta and I Will Buy You A New Life in particular. This sort of rocky pop sound is pretty much non existent in the UK so hearing this was very refreshing.
My only criticism is that there is only one cd and 17 songs. In the UK we have always had two cd's and now have at least 40 songs on every edition if not more. Maybe as the series progresses in the future this could be achieved but overall it is a good start to the series if not as good as Britain's first Now back in 1983.

I really love this CD! As soon as I saw it advertised on TV, I knew I wanted it. I've also got NOW vol.2 (which is also good) NOW vol.3 is coming out in a couple of days, so I'm looking forward to it. I suggest you buy this CD, along with the other volumes.

As I listen to the just released Now 18 album, I still think about that very first Now album from 1998. I bought it back then, because I recognized a lot of my favorite songs. Many of those songs on there still hold up, especially Janet Jackson's Together Again, songs by the Backstreet Boys, the Spice Girls, K-CI and JoJo, Lenny Kravitz (who's even on Now 18--still a hot staple), and Imajin's song. I still love the adventurous Tonic's If You Could Only See. Makes me feel like I'm in Florida in the Everglades area hearing it. There was more of an emphasis on pop back then. These days, the Now albums focus more on rap and rock, which are also exciting to hear. When it reached Volume 10 in 2002, I couldn't believe it. The only songs that still don't grab me are the silly Harvey Danger song and Marcy Playground's sounds-as-if-the-lead singer-was-drunk-in-the-studio-recording-it song, Sex and Candy. It has had a strong shelf life, as many of the Now albums have gone platinum or multi platinum. Some of them weren't well put together, but most of the 18 albums are top notch. They have inspired other similar music compilations like Totally Hits with the 18-, 19- or 20-song format, but they're really no contest. So the Now series that actually started overseas has been a success here. They have a unique way of balancing the songs on the albums and acknowledge many genres on it. This first album was the benchmark to a successful series of Now volumes that still continue 6 yrs. later! Getting the new Now 18 just makes things come full circle as I'm writing this review of the very first one!
