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 36th volume, released in 1996, includes Jamiroquai's "Virtual Insanity," the Chemical Brothers' "Block Rockin' Beats," Sheryl Crow's "Everyday Is a Winding Road," Texas' "Say What You Want," the Divine Comedy's "Everybody Knows (Except You)," and the Prodigy's "Breathe."
