AllMusic Review by

The U.K.'s Now series features timely selections of pop hits and provides a convenient way for casual pop fans to stay on top of the most popular singles. The sets are almost always naturally well-rounded, encompassing dance music, R&B, hip-hop, teen pop, and rock. And though they might expire, in a sense, since they're based on trends in pop music, they work as more than adequate snapshots of specific points in time. The 30th volume, released in 1995, includes Mike + the Mechanics' "Over My Shoulder," the Boo Radleys' "Wake Up Boo!," Portishead's "Glory Box," Rednex' "Cotton Eye Joe," Nicki French's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," JX's "You Belong to Me," and the Human League's "Tell Me When."
