    Andrew's Review
Now That’s What I Call Music! 79 or Now 79 was the Summer volume from 2011. Containing 44 tracks, and 10 UK #1 singles, this volume showcased some of the finest music of the time. It was the first volume in the series to feature Aloe Blacc, Ed Sheeran, Birdy, LMFAO (as a lead artist), DJ Fresh and Nicki Minaj (as a lead artist).

Unusually very few noteworthy songs were omitted on this occasion, with less singles impacting the official Top 40 chart. Some did get overlooked but many were in favour of higher charting hits by the same artist, such as Nicole Scherzinger, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, The Black Eyed Peas, Katy B, Lady Gaga and Mann. The only other noteworthy artist to get overlooked, twice in fact, was Beyoncé.

This would be the only occasion in the series to include music by Alexandra Stan, Yasmin (as a lead artist), Loick Essien, Vato Gonzalez, Snoop Dogg (as a lead artist), DEV (as a lead artist), Mann, Nero and Wynter Gordon (as a lead artist).

Artwork Rating: 6/10 Good
Contrary to my usual negative ratings for artwork, this volume seems to stand out a little from the rest. I’m not sure what it is that makes volume this unique but whilst the theme of flip flops seems unimpressive, the colours used are fresh and summery and the design is very fun and bright. It puts me in a good mood unlike the other ones of the time.

Disc 1 Favourite: Jennifer Lopez – On The Floor
I chose this one as it’s one of my favourite hits from Ms Lopez. Pitbull certainly helps to solidify this song and give it some structure, but the party anthem chorus is infectious and atmospheric. A great track on this compilation.

Disc 2 Favourite: DJ Fresh feat. Sian Evans – Louder
So so many good songs on this disc from start to finish. I picked this one from DJ Fresh which brought his name to the fore and helped him go onto have much more chart success in the future. Not sure whatever happened to Sian Evans though.

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

1. Nicole Scherzinger – Right There 4:02 {3}
2. Beyoncé – Best Thing I Never Had 4:13 {3}
3. Jennifer Lopez feat. Lil Wayne – I’m Into You 3:20 {9}
4. Lady Gaga – Judas 4:10 {8}
5. The Black Eyed Peas – Don’t Stop The Party 6:07 {17}
6. Tinie Tempah – Simply Unstoppable (Yes Remix) 3:57 {33}
7. Katy B – Easy Please Me 3:55 {25}
8. Chase & Status feat. Delilah – Time 4:20 {21}
9. Nicola Roberts – Beat Of My Drum 2:55 {27}
10. Enrique Iglesias feat. Usher – Dirty Dancer 3:34 {21}
11. Starboy Nathan – Diamonds 3:33 {23}
12. Chipmunk feat. Keri Hilson – In The Air 3:55 {37}
13. Jodie Connor feat. Tinchy Stryder – Bring It 3:27 {37}
14. Ke$ha – Blow 3:39 {32}
15. Jedward – Lipstick 2:55 {40}
16. Blue – I Can 3:01 {16}
17. Parade – Perfume 3:07 {38}
18. Beyoncé – Run The World (Girls) 3:58 {11}
19. Nicki Minaj – Girls Fall Like Dominos 3:44 {24}
20. Paramore – Monster 3:20 {21}
21. Arctic Monkeys – Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair 3:03 {28}
----------
Total time: 1:18:15

Overall Rating: 8/10 Extremely Good
It’s not an overstatement to say this is a great volume. There’s so much to be pleased with on the two discs and it is great to see little eyebrow raising omissions in the list. They really did themselves proud with the end result, and the music on this volume still sounds great to listen to some years later. A great summer of music in 2011 captured perfectly on this volume.

Andrew's Best 5 (as of April 2018)
1. Jennifer Lopez – On The Floor
2. DJ Fresh feat. Sian Evans – Louder
3. Snoop Dogg vs. David Guetta – Sweat (David Guetta Remix)
4. LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoodRock – Party Rock Anthem
5. Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat

Andrew's Worst 5 (as of April 2018)
1. Cee Lo Green – I Want You (Hold On To Love)
2. Vato Gonzalez feat. Foreign Beggers – Badman Riddim (Jump)
3. Scouting For Girls – Love How It Hurts
4. Take That – Love Love
5. Chase & Status feat. Tinie Tempah – Hitz

2. Wretch 32 ft. Example - Unorthodox
3. Take That - Love Love
4. Calvin Harris feat. Kelis – Bounce

Disc 1 top ten:
  1. On The Floor
  2. Mr. Saxobeat
  3. Born This Way
  4. I Need A Dollar
  5. Just Can't Get Enough
  6. Finish Line
  7. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall
  8. Someone Like You
  9. Skinny Love
  10. Don't Hold Your Breath

Disc 2 top ten:
  1. Party Rock Anthem
  2. Bounce
  3. Sweat
  4. Give Me Everything
  5. Changed The Way You Kiss Me
  6. Louder
  7. Guilt
  8. Hitz
  9. How We Roll
  10. Sun Is Up

what an amazing disc 2 though!!! banger after banger!

Bottom five:
1 The Lazy Song [thanks to him being all over the radio his songs get annoying very quickly, and this one still is]
2 Don't Wanna Go Home [13 year-old was NOT happy that he mauled Show Me Love, and it still isn't any good]
3 Glad You Came [awful lyrics and amongst all the other club bangers this seemed rather weak and watered down]
4 California King Bed [a real low point in her singles discography, painfully boring and borderline screech]
5 Love How It Hurts [they were beyond a joke at this point]

Disc 1
1. Someone Like You
2. Just Can’t Get Enough
3. I Need A Dollar
4. Born This Way
5. On The Floor

Disc 1 is amazing almost all the way through, even The Lazy Song isn’t too bad although it’s not a song I often go back to. The Scouting for Girls song isn’t memorable either, but that may be because this was around the time I moved to Australia so they weren’t a relevant chart force over here laugh.gif

Disc 2
1. Bounce/Save The World
2. Give Me Everything
3. Beautiful People
4. Louder
5. Super Bass

Another brilliant track list, Bounce & Save The World are tied at the top as both are two of my favourite dance singles ever. I could live without LMFAO but they suffered from being extremely overplayed (as was Redfoo’s solo material) and I got sick of them quickly tongue.gif Beautiful People is the best thing to come from Chris Brown but that’s mainly to do with Benny Benassi dance.gif

Artwork: 6/10
It’s not the worst but there’s far to many bright vibrant colours attacking me all at the same time and makes it a bit of an eyesore. A nice concept, but as usual with many Now covers it’s poorly executed

Overall: 8/10
The Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Enrique, Parade, Paramore, Arctic Monkeys, and Foster The People would’ve been nice additions but Just Can’t Get Enough and Born This Way were big enough hits anyway. Beyoncé is rarely on a Now, and none of the rest were really big hits anyway... not a bad Now laugh.gif
