Matthew Herbert: One Pig

The idiosyncratic Herbert completes his "One" trilogy with an album charting the life of a pig. Occasionally clinical but never gimmicky or exploitative, it's a thoughtful examination of our own consumption at a time when consumption has become something of a pivotal issue. Eccentrics rejoice!

The Matthew Herbert Big Band: There's Me and There's You

It's an interesting album, just not interesting in a way that particularly compels me to listen to it again.

Matthew Herbert: Score

Sadly, for the first time in memory a Herbert album adds up to far less than the sum of its parts.

Matthew Herbert: Scale

Herbert has created music that is thoroughly fresh and consistently challenging, and, in today's culture, that feat alone is enough to earn the album the heartiest of recommendations.

Matthew Herbert: Scale

Is Scale Matthew Herbert's masterpiece, or just his latest masterpiece?

Matthew Herbert: Plat du Jour

There are deep waters here, and anyone who comes expecting the same brand of approachable, quirky house music with which Herbert made his name will be disappointed and quite possibly repulsed.
