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 26th volume, released in 1994, includes SWV's "Right Here," the Spin Doctors' "Two Princes," James' "Laid," Janet Jackson's "That's the Way Love Goes," Culture Beat's "Mr. Vain," M People's "One Night in Heaven," Jamiroquai's "Too Young to Die," and Björk's "Play Dead."
