Album Review: Scale by Matthew Herbert

Excellent, Based on 1 Critic

The Guardian - 80
Based on rating 4/5

Sample wizard Matthew Herbert insists on gathering his own sounds rather than using those that already exist. His last album, Plat du Jour, was a comment on the evils of globalisation with all the sounds conjured from food and its packaging. It was clever but left the listener with little to whistle. Scale, however, is his most accessible album to date.
