    Andrew's Review
Now That’s What I Call Music! 90 or Now 90 was released in the Spring of 2015 and contained 45 tracks with 7 UK #1 singles. It would become the first volume in the series to feature hits from Years & Years (as a lead artist), James Bay, Ben Haenow, Philip George and Blonde.

The omissions from this era are very short in supply, the highest peaking omission was another hit for boyband Union J. Elsewhere Taylor Swift remained off the tracklisting again, and so did The Weeknd, Echosmith, Fifth Harmony, Disciples, Bakermat, LuvBug, Mumford & Sons and Axwell Λ Ingrosso along with a handful of others too.

This volume so far has been the only one to feature music from Alesso (as a lead artist), Marlon Roudette, Tough Love, Tchami, Karen Harding (as a lead artist), Alex Adair and McBusted.

Artwork Rating: 8/10 Extremely Good
This design is so effective, it’s great to see a splash of paint and the effects of the impact of colliding with the fresh white logo. I love the use of greens, reds, purples and blues. A true piece of art and really vibrant.

Disc 1 Favourite: Years & Years – King
The start of Years & Years was a highlight for me. I adored Desire which was unfortunately not selected for this volume, but this #1 single was another fantastic offering from this British artist.

Disc 2 Favourite: Philip George – Wish You Were Mine
A standout dance single from this era of high quality dance music. Not a UK #1 sadly but good enough to be the first track of Disc Two. May mistakenly be remembered as a one hit wonder but he returned to the charts again later in the year.

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

1. Rihanna & Kanye West & Paul McCartney – FourFiveSeconds 3:08 {3}
2. Taylor Swift – Blank Space 3:51 {4}
3. Fifth Harmony – Bo$$ 2:51 {21}
4. Mike Mago & Dragonette – Outlines 3:04 {8}
5. Echosmith – Cool Kids 3:35 {17}
6. Union J – You Got It All 3:32 {2}
7. The Weeknd – Earned It 4:10 {4}
8. Mumford & Sons – Believe 3:41 {20}
9. Imagine Dragons – I Bet My Life 3:14 {27}
10. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – In The Heat Of The Moment 3:29 {26}
11. Bring Me The Horizon – Drown 3:41 {17}
12. 5 Seconds Of Summer – Good Girls 3:27 {25}
13. Madonna – Living For Love 3:38 {26}
14. Years & Years – Desire 3:26 {22}
15. LuvBug – Revive (Say Something) 3:38 {17}
16. Disciples – They Don’t Know 2:41 {24}
17. Hannah Wants & Chris Lorenzo – Rhymes 3:18 {13}
18. Kiesza – No Enemiesz 3:17 {30}
19. Bakermat – Teach Me 3:09 {22}
20. MNEK – The Rhythm 3:31 {38}
21. Axwell Λ Ingrosso – Something New 4:07 {22}
22. Kodaline – Honest 3:38 {39}
23. George Ezra – Listen To The Man 3:03 {41}
----------
Total time: 1:19:09

Overall Rating: 9/10 Amazing
Another pretty faultless volume with so many big hits from this era, making it harder for me to choose a good selection of songs to go on a Disc 3 tracklist (meaning I opted for a #41 flop single from George Ezra). A wonderful era of music and the last time before tropical dance music took over a lot of what charted. A great artwork design too. It’s hard to say what would be needed to make this the best volume of all time but you have to say based on its content that it is surely up there with the best volumes in the series.

Andrew's Best 5 (as of July 2018)
1. Philip George – Wish You Were Mine
2. Tchami feat. Kaleem Taylor – Promesses
3. Years & Years – King
4. Avicii – The Nights
5. Jess Glynne – Hold My Hand

Andrew's Worst 5 (as of July 2018)
1. Sam Smith – Lay Me Down
2. Cheryl – I Don’t Care
3. Fergie – L.A.LOVE (la la)
4. Rixton – Wait On Me
5. Florence + The Machine – What Kind Of Man

Artwork: 7/10:
I like the paint, it doesn't feel very unique but it's nice for what it is. The gap at the top is very noticeable though. I think maybe more paint was needed at the top, or another reflection, or just something to get rid of that empty space.

Overall: 8/10
I remember this album missing a lot of hits, but apparently it doesn't? A handful of omissions for sure (Rihanna, Taylor, Echosmith, The Weeknd, ID, 5SOS, Bakermat, Axwell & Ingrosso, Kodaline, George Ezra, Selena Gomez) but are really understandable missing laugh.gif Oh well, a great Now album I guess

Not a bad volume, it does feature most of the hits of the era but not one I listen to often though.

Here's my Top 5:-

1) Oliver Heldens feat. KStewart - Last All Night (KOWALA)
2) Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding - Outside
3) Philip George - Wish You Were Mine
4) David Guetta feat. Sam Martin - Dangerous
5) Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk

1. Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk
2. Calvin Harris feat. HAIM – Pray To God
3. Jess Glynne – Hold My Hand
4. Years & Years – King
5. Alesso feat. Tove Lo – Heroes (We Could Be)

2. Oliver Heldens feat. KStewart – Last All Night (Koala)
3. Philip George – Wish You Were Mine
4. Tchami feat. Kaleem Taylor – Promesses

Would also put Thinking Out Loud here but it's not quite as bad as the five above, just really overplayed.

cover art: 7/10
overall: 7/10 [quite a few great songs but a lot of average too]

NOW 90 is okay, I do love the cover though. For me, there is too many ‘average ‘ songs especially at the end on disc 2 and many songs on disc 1. I struggled to choose a favourite single for a while whilst most albums are instant.

My top 5:
Oliver Heldens/Kstewart - Last All Night (Koala)
David Guetta/Emeli Sandι - What I Did For Love
Philip George - Wish You Were Mine
Fergie - LA Love (too catchy!)
David Guetta/Sam Martin - Dangerous
