I love most of the songs in the cd.

I am really pleased with my purchase and would recommend this cd to anyone who is a fan of the Now That's What I Call Music cd's.

It's great for the casual listener while fans of the artists themselves should like it too.

The songs featured on this compilation CD are from the spring and summer of 2014. Some of the songs were great, while others felt a bit lukewarm. Amazon doesn't currently have the track listing available, so I will now provide the track listing for anyone that is interested (hopefully this list is accurate -- please let me know if it's not!!), followed by my ratings on each respective song. :)

Katy Perry -- Birthday: 5 stars.
Ariana Grande & Iggy Azalea -- Problem: 5 stars.
Magic! -- Rude: 5 stars.
Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX -- Fancy: 5 stars.
MKTO -- Classic: 4 stars.
Justin Timberlake -- Not A Bad Thing: 4 stars.
Pitbull -- Wild Wild Love: 4 stars.
Paramore -- Ain't It Fun?: 5 stars.
Demi Lovato & Cher Lloyd -- Really Don't Care: 5 stars.
Sia -- Chandelier: 5 stars.
Kongos -- Come With Me Now: 5 stars.
5 Seconds Of Summer -- She Looks So Perfect: 4 stars.
Rixton -- Me And My Broken Heart: 4 stars.
Sam Smith -- Stay With Me: 4 stars.
Idina Menzel -- Let It Go: 4 stars. (I much prefer the Demi Lovato version, however.)
Luke Bryan -- Play It Again: n/a.
Jamie Scott -- Unbreakable: n/a.
A Great Big World -- Already Home: 4 stars.
Seven Lions with Myon, Tove Lo, and Shane 54 -- Strangers: n/a.
Jacob Latimore with T-Pain: Heartbreak Heard Around The World: 4 stars.
Teyana Taylor with Pusha T & Yo Gotti: Maybe: n/a.

There might be a few songs missing that SHOULD have been included -- where is Calvin Harris' "Summer", Disclosure's "Latch", or Lorde's "Tennis Court"?? Hmmm, perhaps next time...

Now Music continues their quarterly offering of clean pop hits with Now 51. This album feels more up-to-date and current than some of the recent Now releases, though there are still some huge misses.
Why on earth does NOW feel the need to repeat songs? MKTO's 'Classic' was on a Now release a few albums ago, and yet here it is again... why the double-dip? Seems pointless.
Another head-scratching inclusion is 'Let It Go' from Disney's Frozen. While this song is huge, by August it's already passed overplay and it shouldn't be included here. Seriously Now - Let it Go. There are more current songs that could have been included that might have been more relevant like Kim Cesarion's 'Undressed', Nico And Vinz's 'Am I Wrong', Calvin Harris' 'Summer', Disclosure/Sam Smith's 'Latch', Maroon 5's 'Maps', Charli XCX's 'Boom Clap' and/or Pharrell's 'Come Get It Bae'.

Thankfully, this release gets it right in so many ways:
Katy Perry's 'Birthday' isn't her best work, but it's a fun song.
Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea's 'Problem' is probably one of the most catchy songs on the radio - and this album - right now and is an excellent inclusion.
'Rude' by Magic!, 'Fancy' by Iggy Azalea, 'Wild Wild Love' by Pitbull, 'She Looks So Perfect' by 5 Seconds Of Summer, and 'Me And My Broken Heart' by Rixton are welcome on this album and are just what I've come to expect from Now.

I was overly pleased by the newer tracks that made this album - 'Really Don't Care' by Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd, Sia's 'Chandelier', and the Kongo's insta-commerical-soundtrack-bait 'Come With Me Now' - I really didn't expect them to make the cut this time around, so that's a nice surprise.

This latest Now release features familiar artists like Katy Perry, J.T., Pitbull, Demi Lovato and Paramore and some new ones like 5 Seconds of Summer, Rixton, Idina Menzel and Iggy Azalea who appears twice. If you listen to Top Forty radio, you already know many of the tracks here. It's great for the casual listener while fans of the artists themselves should like it too.

Good compilation of music. Nice feature of Amazon to allow downloading electronic copy of music prior to receiving the physical disk. Was able to enjoy the music almost immediately after purchase transaction completed.

Now That's What I Call Music albums, give me all the hits I love with out having to purchase them individually or purchase full albums of artists I wouldn't typically listen too with the exception of their hit songs.

Fabulous CD..just great.
I never new I was an IGGY fan, but I am now.
Has a good variety of music.

Absolutely fell in Love with Kongos song Come With Me Now . I had never heard it before.
Even liked the pop "boy bandish" MKTO, kind of catchy.

They could have let go..Let It Go..Enough is Enough

It's a nice mix of what's popular, as most of these albums are, but there wasn't real a single song that really moved me strongly. It helps me to keep up to date on who's up and coming and who's current right now, but this one was just ...nice. Even now I can barely remember the songs. They didn't make me gag, but neither did they lift me up.
