Hey guys and gals,

Upon consulting with BuzzJack member Spiral, I've taken it upon myself to create the next Now Music thread, after the last one has been suitably used for the last 2 years, and has inspired 30+ pages of comments.

What I hope to bring to this thread, with your support and permission of course, is both a directory for every Now release which has been reviewed on the forum, as well as a focal point for the latest releases and other Now news.

There have been various "Now rates" and other threads for specific Now volumes, and it is my hope that I can incorporate these into the weekly reviews as and when they come up. So this means you won't have to repeat anything you've already done before, all the data for each release will come together nicely, thanks to the fine work of other Buzzjack members in the past.

Here are the links to the current Now Reviews you can find on the forum, with of course more to be added in due course;
    Archive


















    Forthcoming Releases
This truly will be the best Now Music thread ever! biggrin.gif

For reference, here are the previous Now threads found in this forum;

<a href="http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=162208" target="_blank">The Original Now Music Thread (2010-2014)</a>
<a href="http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=190330" target="_blank">The Now Music Thread 2.0 (2014-2016)</a>
[url=http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=194515]The Official Now Music Theead 3.0 (2016-2018)</a>

If you have any ideas, suggestions or just general feedback on this thread moving forward, please PM me directly. smile.gif

Disc 1 is amazing but Disc 2 is less so.. Is Stormzy last on Disc 1 or first on Disc 2? Both seem like strange placing for it though

Great that Khalid made it so early on Disc 2, hopefully it’ll be a hit soon!

U2 & Oasis closing Disc 2 is strange too, I’m not complaining as both songs are great... but why? laugh.gif

LF previously appeared on NOW 33. They could have at least included another song by Oasis if they were eager to include them

To be fair it's a better tracklist than I was expecting, I thought it would be much more urban heavy. No Ed Sheeran must be a kick in the teeth though!

I do get the feeling they were scraping the barrel with a flop from Rag 'N' Bone Man which was released before 'Grace' as well as U2 and an oldie from Oasis. If they had room why not include either Noel or Liam Gallagher's new tracks or even both?

It did along with 'Don't Look Back In Anger' which is on the same volume.

Overall I think it's a good selection, good placements for Kylie, Timberlake, Portugal. The Man and George Ezra. It's a nice tribute to see Live Forever there, and it's a solid U2 track (not my favourite single from that album, that would be Get Out of Your Own Way.

So much pop compared to the charts. I love it! Kylie, Justin, Taylor, and Dua Lipa! I love it. What a strong track listing!

I'm gagged of Dancing being added! and they finally got Taylor? INSANE! Bravo NOW!

Well that is a disappointingly big number of flop singles. My questions:

Why do NOW keep insisting on putting in Rag'n'Bone Man?
And the U2 single no one cared about which was out last year?
Why the need for Paloma to feature twice also?
The Oasis one just because Liam performed it as a tribute at the BRITs?

Those as well as Kylie, Tom Walker, Calum Scott, Khalid, CLiQ, SZA, Demi and Maroon 5 brings the total to 11 songs that missed the top 40 (12 if you count Oasis too).

Sad that there are no #1 singles on this edition either, perhaps Ed is saving 'Perfect' for a NOW 100 track 1 appearance (and I bet 'Shape Of You' appears on NOW 100 also). None of the movie soundtrack singles being able to get licensed either, but other than those it's got most of the hits. Aside, does anyone think they'll make NOW 100 a 3-CD comp?

Surprised they actually got Taylor though, that's good for them. Also surprised they got Drake even if it's not his #1 and just a feature credit.

I suppose NOW have a thing for Kylie, and the NOW buying audience probably like her more than a lot of the urban stuff. Was half expecting 'Dancing' to feature anyway though I was doing my NOW predictions based on the biggest hit singles.
