For the quantity of remix and production work alone, it seems quite staggering that Matthew Herbert has time to make his own records. 'Scale' sees Herbert once more team up with partner Dani Siciliano on a journey into jazz and beats last explored on 2001's 'Bodily Functions' but there's also a similarity to Roisin Murphy's debut outing where Herbert produced. Where 'Scale' differs is that it's slightly more danceable and even heavier on samples. 'Moving Like A Train' shuffles along like Rose Royce's 'Car Wash' whilst 'Harmonise' is more modern and club-influenced yet still highly addictive. Unfortunately momentum is lost as the album draws on as both Siciliano and Herbert seem to drift aimlessly away from melody on too many occasions. Cases in point are 'Down' and 'Just Once' where queasy strings strive for drama but end up sounding sleepy and insubstantial. It is on these occasions where Herbert falls into the trap of a producer/remixer failing to deliver a great album but - with his hefty recording schedule - perhaps this is to be expected.
