Since Bodily Functions is the first Herbert production album available in wide release distributed in America through! Bodily Functions is very similar to his Around the House LP from many of the tracks were first worked on as early asthe unifying theme here being relations between human beings instead of their relations to their home environment. Though many of the samples here are culled from the anatomy, listeners still reeling from the recent surgery-sampling Matmos LP will be happy to find that, except for the first track a meditation on newborns featuring various gurglings and Down In The Bottom - Jackie McLean & Michael Carvin - Antiquitythere aren't many identifiable bodily functions in the mix -- though a quick glance at the booklet credits will convince listeners otherwise, it's easy to assume Herbert simply has a few freaky new drum machines producing all those odd effects.

Therefore, no samples Its Only - Herbert* - Bodily Functions (Special 10th Anniversary Edition) than those he's recorded himself, no simple preset synthesizer effects, and a reliance on traditional, played instruments instead of their close electronic equivalents.

It's basically Herbert heading a postmodern lounge act, with a parade of friendly musicians -- and his own electric piano -- placed under the calming, languorous vocals of Dani Siciliano.
