Artist: Various Artists Title: “Now That’s What I Call Rock” Label: Now Music Release Date: 1/22/2016 Genre: Rock Rating: 3.5/5
I’m pretty sure that you have seen these compilations while you’ve shopped for all sorts of music at your local brick and mortar place and there is a good chance that you even own a few of them since they are rather diverse in their offerings. The latest edition of these “Now Music” collections is called “Now That’s What I Call Rock” and brings you twenty-one tracks from the hottest bands in the Rock genre in today’s world. I have to admit that I am not all that up on what is considered “Rock” nowadays based on my ardent appreciation for the more classic artists and being a tried and true Metalhead that follows the artists who are dishing out that sort of thing. That being said I have to admit that this collection intrigued me and I did recognize many of the names on the compilation and can cross a couple of them off of my need to see in concert list. The album starts with a Bring Me The Horizon tune and having caught them in a small club thanks to some special event last year I can say that this was a great way to begin the album. Notable contributions come from bands like Shinedown, Seether and Imagine Dragons. The latter of the listed having a song on a commercial that keeps playing over and over in my head. You cannot really go wrong with anything from Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell or Fall Out Boy since they sell out arena sized shows over and over and have mega popularity across a wide spanning demographic of music fans.
