AllMusic 2.5/5 stars[3]

Andy Kellman in his review for AllMusic recognizes that a lot of top artists contribute to Now! 20 but those artists "deliver songs that are either tepid retreads or safe compounds of past hits", but it's the songs by the newer artists of the time "that keeps the compilation from being disposable", pointing out tracks by the Pussycat Dolls, Fall Out Boy, and Rihanna as standouts from this volume.[3]
