Most of this had great songs and music videos but I could skip the rap songs.
It could have been way much better.

"I bought the first Now Dvd when it came out in 2003 and found it ok so I bought this one and honestly, just have few good videos. I think that the best videos are: No Doubt "IT'S MY LIFE", Good Charlote "HOLD ON", Christina Millian "DIP IT LOW", Black Eyed Peas "HEY MAMA", Chingy with Ludacris & Snoop Dogg "HOLIDAE IN", Jessica Simpson "WITH YOU" and Norah Jones "SUNRISE". The rest are just to fill the Dvd. And about calling this the best video collection of the year, that's so funny. Where are great videos as Kelis "Milkshake", Enrique Iglesias "NOT IN LOVE" or Maroon 5 "SHE WILL BE LOVED", just to name a few. I hope that Now can release a good one this year."
Synching is off

"I like the songs on this compilation HOWEVER, the audio and video is off about 1/2 second or 1 second depending on the song AND this is the second one I got (I exchanged the first one since audio and video was not in synch). For $15, its not worth the two trips I have had to make to buy this. I contacted the manufacturer and they told me to go back to the store. How many will I have to exchange before I get one that is in synch???"
Lip Synching Appears to Be Off

"I bought this DVD to find that the singers' mouth movements in every video on the disc do not match the lyrics I am listening to. The synching is off, about a half second or so. I returned the DVD for another one, and the same thing happened with the second one. Has this happened to anyone else?"
Good, not Great

"I bought this DVD sight-unseen because I know it is a great value and the Now DVD's are always fun to have playing in the background giving any party a real club atmosphere. I have noticed one reoccuring trend with this the second of the Now DVD sets: The first DVD release conicided with Now 16 and this Now DVD 2 which was released contemporaneously with Now 17. Both CD's seem to feature more R&B and hip-hop songs (not unlike Top 40 radio these days) while the videos have a more mainstream mix, more like MTV. Although many of the songs on the CD's are represented on the DVD's, there is definately a more of a rock/pop leaning to the DVD's than the albums.
I am not going to judge the individual songs or videos. One either likes these songs or they don't. I will state, however, that I am dissapointed the playlist which states it contains "Slow" by Kylie Minogue acutally has "Extraordinary" by Liz Phair. While Liz is a wonderful artist, her record label's attempt to remake her as a pop-princess seems to me a bit far-fetched, whereas Kylie is a bona-fide pop-star and should be right at home on any pop-compilation from the US to Japan.
