Music At Work (or Music @ Work) is the seventh full-length album by Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip. It was released in 2000 (see 2000 in music).

The album's title comes from the slogan of a Toronto soft rock station, EZRock. Its use is meant to be ironic; the first line of the title track is "Everything is bleak, it's the middle of the night/you're all alone and the dummies might be right."

Much like their previous album, Phantom Power, it was well-received in Canada, but is not considered a classic album like their earlier work such as Up to Here or Fully Completely.

After the album was released, singer Gordon Downie released a solo album of music and poetry called Coke Machine Glow.

All songs were written by The Tragically Hip.

How Music Works (1084 words)
Eduard Hanslick wrote The Beautiful in Music in 1854 and any explanation and evaluation of his claim that 'the essence of music is sound and motion' must have regard to historical context in determining the author's meaning.
For Hanslick 'music' meant principally the instrumental and orchestral works of the 18th Century and first half of the 19th Century, the period we might loosely call 'classical'- music whose 'primordial element' was 'euphony' (The beautiful in music, TAB, p.421).
Hanslick's approach is one which seeks to intellectualise music: 'in music there is both language and logical sequence, but in a musical sense; it is language we speak and understand, but which we are unable to translate.
