Work This, Vol. 4: Club NRG Workout collects more energetic house, Hi-NRG, and dance-pop singles, including Who da Funk's "Shiny Disco Balls," Divine Inspiration's "The Way," Flip & Fill's "Shooting Star," and Dancefloorkiller's "Floorkiller." As the title suggests, this collection's purpose is to keep a continuous, fast-paced rhythm ideal for aerobic workouts, and Work This, Vol. 4 accomplishes its mission; songs like White Flag's "Only Time," Flesh & Bones' "I Love You," and N-Trance's "Forever" have such insistent, repetitive rhythms that they could quickly become monotonous for the listener who isn't working up a sweat in the gym or on the dancefloor. Space Cowboy's remix of "I Would Die for U" and Lightforce's "Join Me (Dave London Breaks Mix)" offer some diversity in mood and tempo, but not so much that the listener/exerciser's heart rate will dip too low. All in all, Work This, Vol. 4: Club NRG Workout is a serviceable, if somewhat predictable, collection of exercise music that is worthwhile for someone looking for a relatively hip workout soundtrack who is either unwilling or unable to make their own mix.
