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 48th volume, released in 2001, includes Samantha Mumba's "Always Come Back to Your Love," Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again," the Backstreet Boys' "Shape of My Heart," U2's "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of," Eva Cassidy's "Over the Rainbow," and Coldplay's "Don't Panic."
