Yes, the title of the Now That's What I Call Music series is corny, but the compilations are undeniably entertaining and even useful. For instance, Now, Vol. 2 contains 18 tracks, almost all of them hits from 1998 and 1999 ( Sublime 's 1996 hit "What I Got" being the major exception to the rule). The only thing tying these songs together is that they shared space on the charts and airwaves, but that's enough -- it's a terrific time capsule, at the very least, capturing what American pop radio sounded like in the late '90s. Besides, there are some great singles here -- Britney Spears ' "Baby One More Time...," the New Radicals ' "You Get What You Give," U2 's "The Sweetest Thing," Sheryl Crow 's "My Favorite Mistake," Fatboy Slim 's "Praise You," Garbage 's "I Think I'm Paranoid," Spice Girls ' "Goodbye," Everclear 's "Father of Mine," Jay Z 's "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)," Baz Luhrmann 's "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)," and Robbie Williams ' "Millennium." If you're keeping track, you'll notice that the above songs take up over half of the record, and that makes the disc a real bargain. The remaining songs might not be as good, but they are decent, representative tunes from 1999 and help make Now That's What I Call Music, Vol. 2 an entertaining snapshot of a fleeting era in pop music history.
