In these uncertain economic times, there's no better way to sift through the Top 40 without racking up huge bills at your local record shop than by picking up Now That's What I Call Music! Vol. 15. This ongoing series, now in its sixth year on our shores, allows listeners to indulge in their own guilty musical pleasures, without having commitment issues. Fans can revel in the breathy lyrics of Gwen Stefani as No Doubt revisits the 80s with their frothy cover of Talk Talk's "It's My Life," then witness pop devouring itself, as Britney Spears resolutely sheds the last vestiges of her coy good girl posturing and bears her perfect musical teeth on the aerobic yet seditious "Toxic." Ludacris makes two appearances on this 20-song collection, once on "Stand Up," his smart, sexy, and slightly menacing duet with Shawnna, and then to lesser effect with his one-time protégée Chingy on the rather laconic and badly mangled "Holidae In." Instead best in show goes to "Gangsta Nation" by rap supergroup Westside Connection featuring Nate Dogg. The combination of that anxious insinuating organ and Dogg's finely honed cultural witticism is irresistible. --Jaan Uhelszki
