    Andrew's Review
Now That’s What I Call Music! 77 aka Now 77 was released just before the harsh winter of 2010. It contained 44 tracks and 12 UK #1 singles from the late Summer and Autumn era. This was the volume that gave series debuts to artists like Cee Lo Green (as a solo artist), Mike Posner, The Wanted, Olly Murs, Eliza Doolittle, Bruno Mars (as a lead artist), Labrinth (as a lead artist) and Katy B.

There were many, many incredible omissions from this era which didn’t make the cut. This included a two-week #1 single from Alexandra Burke, who herself had featured on the previous two volumes, but not on this one. Also omitted were hits from Kings Of Leon, JLS, Westlife, Alex Gaudino, will.i.am, Katy Perry, The Wanted, The Saturdays, Emma’s Imagination and P!nk to name a handful.

This volume was to be the only occasion there would be featured music from Duck Sauce, Rumer, Travie McCoy (as a lead artist) and Brandon Flowers (as a solo artist).

Artwork Rating: 6/10 Good
Normally by now I would complain about the overuse of the same kind of themes and colours, and this artwork doesn’t appear to be different to the other volumes of the time, but I do find it quite striking and it works well. Multi-coloured snowboards thrown around the logo might seem over the top but I quite like the backdrop of the mountains too which hasn’t been seen since an artwork from the 90’s.

Disc 1 Favourite: Tinie Tempah feat. Eric Turner – Written In The Stars
The chorus in this song, sung by Eric Turner, is what makes this great. A frequently used song for Sky Sports football over the years too which has helped to prolong it’s longevity. Tinie’s other song on this disc with Swedish House Mafia is quite an anthem too.

Disc 2 Favourite: Mumford & Sons – The Cave
Unusual for a song that peaked so low would feature on this volume and be a personal favourite too. This is, for me, the best single ever made by British band Mumford & Sons. It’s so good to see this song feature on this volume.

Disc 3 Tracklist:
(A concept of what a third disc might look like if other hits from the era were used)

1. Alexandra Burke feat. Laza Morgan – Start Without You 3:32 {1}
2. Katy Perry – Teenage Dream 3:47 {2}
3. The Wanted – Heart Vacancy 3:42 {2}
4. Ellie Goulding – The Writer 4:11 {19}
5. The Saturdays – Missing You 3:41 {3}
6. Inna – Amazing 3:28 {14}
7. Tim Berg – Seek Bromance (Avicii’s Vocal Edit) 3:57 {13}
8. Alex Gaudino – I’m In Love (I Wanna Do It) 2:52 {10}
9. Stromae – Alors On Danse 3:26 {25}
10. Example – Last Ones Standing 3:27 {27}
11. Basshunter – Saturday 3:00 {21}
12. DJ Fresh – Gold Dust 3:14 {24}
13. Chase & Status feat. Mali – Let You Go 3:54 {11}
14. Pendulum – Witchcraft 4:12 {29}
15. Magnetic Man feat. Angela Hunte – I Need Air 4:18 {10}
16. B.o.B feat. Rivers Cuomo – Magic 3:16 {16}
17. Aggro Santos – Saint Or Sinner 3:03 {19}
18. P!nk – Raise Your Glass 3:22 {13}
19. Scouting For Girls – Famous 2:35 {37}
20. The Hoosiers – Choices 2:48 {11}
21. Kings Of Leon – Radioactive 3:26 {7}
22. The xx – Islands 2:44 {34}
23. Hurts – Wonderful Life 3:34 {21}
----------
Total time: 1:19:29

Overall Rating: 6/10 Good
This volume is mostly good, but there’s lots of filler in the second disc which spoils this volume for me a bit, when compared with some of the banging omissions that were shockingly overlooked. Many of the songs that were included have not aged well and are all but forgotten. However, for the second volume in a row, it’s good to see almost 100% of the available disc space getting used instead of wasted (even if it was used for low quality songs). Also nice to see an even spread of genres across both discs.

Andrew's Best 5 (as of March 2018)
1. Mumford & Sons – The Cave
2. Tinie Tempah feat. Eric Turner – Written In The Stars
3. Swedish House Mafia vs. Tinie Tempah – Miami 2 Ibiza
4. Flo Rida feat. David Guetta – Club Can’t Handle Me
5. Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand

Andrew's Worst 5 (as of March 2018)
1. Rumer – Slow
2. Joe McElderry – Ambitions
3. Alesha Dixon – Drummer Boy
4. Pixie Lott – Broken Arrow
5. The Saturdays feat. Flo Rida – Higher

A great edition, though as Andrew say's there is some filler in the album too.

Here's my Top 5:-

1) Brandon Flowers - Crossfire
2) Flo Rida & David Guetta - The Club Can't Handle Me
3) Duck Sauce - Barbra Streisand
4) Mumford & Sons - The Cave
5) Swedish House Mafia vs Tinie Tempah - Miami 2 Ibiza

Miami 2 Ibiza is my fave from disc 1, the drop is euphoric in it and from disc 2 my fave is Katy On A Mission, which sounded different to anything else in the charts at the time and I really liked it back then.

Some of those omissions though definitely should have been included, Seek Bromance, I’m In Love (I Wanna Do It) and Let You Go especially!

I'm actually a big fan of this Now, I remember listening to this on repeat for quite a while too - for a longer time than I normally (or used to) do anyway. Whilst there is some filler, it's actually not bad filler at all for the most part. Rumer, Alesha Dixon, N-Dubz, Joe McElderry, and McFly I could live without but I do enjoy everything else here. Even the Jay Sean track is a bit of a guilty pleasure kink.gif

Disc 1 Top 510:
1. Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me
2. Tinie Tempah feat. Eric Turner – Written In The Stars
3. Katy Perry – Firework
4. Swedish House Mafia vs. Tinie Tempah – Miami 2 Ibiza
5. Rihanna – Only Girl (In The World)
6. Roll Deep – Green Light
7. Flo Rida feat. David Guetta – Club Can’t Handle Me
8. Enrique Iglesias feat. Nicole Scherzinger – Heartbeat
9. Cee Lo Green – Forget You
10. Usher feat. Pitbull – DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love

Closely followed by everything else laugh.gif Dynamite used to be a favourite but it hasn't aged well for me really, although I don't mind hearing it out at the shops I never go out of my way for it tongue.gif

Disc 2 Top 510:

1. B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams – Airplanes
2. Plan B – Prayin’
3. The Script – For The First Time
4. Adele – Make You Feel My Love
5. Brandon Flowers – Crossfire
6. Shontelle – Impossible
7. Nelly – Just A Dream
8. Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars – Billionaire
9. Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are
10. Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow – Shame

The artwork is fairly nice, it's vibrant and I like the theme of snowboarding as an album cover. I feel like the snowboards themselves are bit boring with super basic designs though.

As for omissions, I'm not too bothered about much there tongue.gif Teenage Dream would've been nice but I imagine Katy only wanted one of her album-selling singles to be on this Now album - so I'm very happy they went with Firework over Teenage Dream even though the latter had a higher peak. Avicii Tim Berg, DJ Fresh, B.o.B., Pink, Scouting For Girls, will.i.am, Mark Ronson & The Business Intl, Kings of Leon, and My Chemical Romance are the only omissions I would have liked to have made it. DJ Fresh & Pink especially, even though their peaks aren't too great the songs themselves are iconic and feel much bigger than they actually were, likely due to how many bangers were in the charts at the time to be fair.

Hmm this edition didn't have many big highlights for me on plug.dj tonight and was understandably dated in a lot of places! The ultimate high of the album is very high however, that is Mumford & Sons' 'The Cave' on disc 2 which is an absolutely stunning song wub.gif I have never massively taken to the group on the whole (I never felt the urge to seek out their albums for instance) but this one song in particular is a masterpiece. My disc 1 favourite is 'Please Don't Let Me Go' which was released during my height of Olly Murs stanning, when my username on everything was JadeGagaOlly and I would spam it all day long laugh.gif still a really pleasant and carefree tune. 'Miami 2 Ibiza' rivals it though as that is in my top 3 of Swedish House Mafia's discography along with 'One (Your Name)' and 'Greyhound'!
