PROG REVIEWER
1 stars Vox is a strange kind of compilation. They put together all Malicorne's songs "a cappella" released on the previous albums: the only songs that didn't appear before are "Le navire de Bayonne / Paye paysan" and the remix of "Marions les roses" (that doesn't sound so different from the original, indeed). The result in my opinion is quite boring: I like very much some of these songs (for instance "Margot", "Salut la compagnie" and "Jolie mai") but I think that here you risk an "overdose". The short moments "a cappella" on album like "Malicorne II" or "Almanach" are quite good because they sound like breaks, they sound different. But a whole album with only vocals (though sometimes there are some instruments in the background) is too much. The booklet is good, with all the lyrics and a lot of information about the songs, but if you look for a compilation to check this band it is better avoid "Vox": this album is not a "best of" or a good sample of Malicorne's music.

Useless, just for completionists!

4 stars This is the first Malicorne CD I've gotten. First heard their music when I was in Paris in 2005 and loved it. Very much into early Euro-folk and some early proggish bands with lotsa mellotron. 'VOX' is a very organic and well done compilation in my opinion. Their voices and arrangements are all unique and sound like early instruments as well!
