AllMusic Review by

This installment of the Mind Body Spirit collection is intended as workplace background music. "Make your office a nice place to be," its liners assert, and to that end, Work Force provides a brace of pleasant, Celtic-inspired melodies performed on fiddle and acoustic guitar. The arrangements drift between traditional ("Ashokan Farewell"; "Marin O'Connor's Home") and contemplative modernism ("Late Winter, Early Spring"); mid-album standout "Cello Man" offers a rousing respite from the pretty, if same-y surroundings, but Mind Body Spirit mostly stays in the background.
