Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Now That's What I Call Music! 35 was released on August 31, 2010. The album is the 35th edition of the (U.S.) Now! series. It features the number-one Billboard Hot 100 hit, "California Gurls".

Now 35 debuted at number two on the Billboard 200, moving 105,000 units in its first week of release. In November 2010, the album was certified Gold by the RIAA.

"While it may seems as if they come out every month, this is only the third hits collects for the Now That's What I Call Music! series in 2010 (they had other genres released, but no other Top 40 collections). Starting the year off with the very well rounded Vol's 33 and 34, it is safe to say that they have once again outdone themselves.

Leading off with what will be remembered as the anthem of 2010 is Katy Perry's mega-smash, "California Gurls," which is great as it would be hard to think of a better song to summarize the past couple of months. While she has not reached the iconic level of Lady Gaga, Perry's career and talent are still strong and she has the staying power that many may have not thought she would after bursting on the scene with the novelty-drenched, but larger then life cut, "I Kissed A Girl," a couple of years back.

Perry kicks off the party on the CD, but it does not slow down as David Guetta's "Gettin' Over You" and Black Eyed Peas' "Rock That Body" keep the intensity level flowing.

British-based synthpop duo, LA Roux, make their first appearance on a US issued Now CD with "Bulletproof." The song, which is heavily influenced from the dance/synth bands of the 80s (e.g. Human League, Yaz), took a while to break in the States (La Roux's debut CD was released nearly a year ago) but has become a bona fide dance floor staple, while, the expected his are here as well (Gaga's"Alejandro, Travie McCoy's "Billionaire" and the light, but pleasing, Hip-Hop of Jason Derülo "Ridin' Solo").

Another successful addition to a series that most likely (and should never) stop." -BlogCritics

Album Notes

While Now, Vol. 34 featured four songs that had reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100, the 35th volume contains one: Katy Perry's "California Gurls." The Now compilers can't be faulted for the shortage of number ones here, however, not when Ke$ha's "TiK ToK" (Now, Vol. 33), Rihanna's "Rude Boy" (Now, Vol. 34), and "California Gurls" hogged the spot for a combined 20 weeks. Regardless, this is one of the more "now" volumes of the series; when the disc was released, only one of its 16 songs wasn't in the Hot 100, while four were in the Top 20. The "Now What's Next" portion of the disc -- the series used to feature nothing but chart hits, but is now 20% promotion of new artists, each of whom gets a full-page profile in the booklet -- features Jennette McCurdy, Days Difference, Sky Ferreira, and Tiffany Dunn. ~ Andy Kellman
