Herbert turns his considerable talents towards a more jazzy path with his album, Bodily Functions. Dani Siciliano is still in full effect on the romantic “You’re Unknown to Me” and the housey “It’s Only,” but other vocalists are introduced as well. Phil Parnell lends his soul to “You Saw It All” and Shingai Shoniwa’s husky voice works to great effect on “I Miss You” and in a duet with Dani on the marvelously complex “The Audience.” “Suddenly” and “Leave Me Now” are more of the sublime house that we crave, while jazz, replete with squelches and noise that only Herbert can manage, is the order of the day on “I Know,” the reworking of “The Last Beat,” and “On Reflection.” Another wonderful album from Herbert -- he just keeps getting better and better.

Brilliant! Normally I can't stand house music, but Herbert always comes through with something intelligent and tasteful that you can sit and listen to with headphones.
The album features samples of household sounds, a Herbert trademark. His collaboration with Matmos has led him to include medical samples (laser eye surgery) and body sounds, like the sampled sound of blood flowing through M.C. Schmidt's veins.
However creepy this may all sound, these songs are lush and beautiful. Dani Siciliano's singing reminds me a bit of Siouxsie's vocals with the Creatures. The lyrics themselves are a bit vague but definitely better than the "love will save the day" nonsense that house divas generally belt out.
Highly recommended.
