Man @ Work is the eighth solo album by former Men at Work lead singer Colin Hay. The album is essentially a career-retrospective for Hay and roughly half of the songs on this album are Hay's solo studio renderings of works from the Men at Work catalog, while several others are remixes or re-recordings of material from his solo albums. Some songs are almost identical to the original recordings (e.g. "Be Good Johnny") while others are complete reinterpretations (e.g. acoustic versions of "Down Under" and "Who Can It Be Now?"). The album concludes with a version of "Down Under" recorded with the group Wild Clams.

While he'll always be best known as the lead singer for early-'80s MTV darlings Men at Work, Colin Hay has been issuing solo releases on a somewhat regular basis, ever since his former band's disintegration. But for his 2003 release, Man at Work, Hay has decided to take a step back and rework several Men at Work classics. While it's not uncommon for classic rockers to rework their songs (the "unplugged" craze of the '90s, anyone?), the reasoning as to why Hay would issue such a recording now is a bit puzzling. While such acoustic Men at Work tracks as "Overkill" and "Who Can It Be Now?" are quite charming and worth hearing, the pointless re-recordings of "Be Good Johnny" and "It's a Mistake" (which are almost identical to the originals) are pretty darn pointless. Hay's non-Men at Work songs ("Beautiful World," "Waiting for My Real Life to Begin") are worth hearing, but of course, they're not up to the high Business as Usual standards. That said, Hay's voice is still in fine form all these years later, sounding as good as it did during his commercial heyday. Man at Work will only be of interest to the hardest of hardcore Colin Hay fan. Reviewed by Greg Prato allmusic.com
