  • Summary: This is the sophomore effort for the duo of DJs from a popular London club known as The End. It is not a mix album, however; instead, the 14 trance-house tracks are original compositions.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 14
  2. Negative: 0 out of 14
  1. 100
    Definitely in the hat for album of the year.
  2. A righteous wallop of club-crawling, rave-slumming fun. [Oct 2002, p.83]
  3. Night Works proclaims the victory of brains over booty-call, mind over matter, craft over cash.
  4. It's hard to put into words exactly what makes this album so appealing. The mindlessness of it all is a major selling point.
  5. It's this fusing of electronics, instrumentals and genres that will separate it from big beat acts -- a.k.a The Chemical Brothers a.k.a. Fatboy Slim.
  6. 80
    The music pulses with a shimmering, spine-tingling blend of moodiness and vitality. [Sep 2002, p.102]
  7. The effect is spoiled by noodly, indifferent tracks such as We Meet At Last. [Aug 2002, p.128]
