AllMusic Review by

The titles in Electric Lounge's Style series (as in "style over substance") are hideously patterned after the Hed Kandi compilations, replete with rip-off graphic designs that are borderline parodic and track selections that appeal to posh clubbers. Style: After Work features a load of innocuous downbeat productions, many of which feature an attempt to bridge at least one stylistic divide of some sort. There are several nods to Latin and Brazilian jazz, most of which are quite hollow. Some of the tracks featured on this compilation of forced sophistication include Anima Sound System's "Mariguana Cha-Cha-Cha," Fresh Moods' "Mescalinas," Lemongrass' "La Mer," Moodorama's "Sinzing Sunset Boulevard," and Stargazer's "Slow Motion."
