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 43rd volume, released in 1999, includes Basement Jaxx's "Red Alert," New Radicals' "You Get What You Give," Fatboy Slim's "Right Here Right Now," James' "I Know What I'm Here For," Stereophonics' "Pick a Part That's New," and Masters at Work's "To Be in Love."
