Format: Audio CD
'Alambic' is the third album by Claire Vezina, an artist from Québec who has a unique vocal signature, and plays elegant americana-infused prog-pop.

Track 1 is a slow-paced song, with a discreet rhodes and some vocal shifts in the repeated words "si loin" and echo effects to mirror the title ("so far...from here"). Some cosmic keyboard touches can be witnessed in the chorus as well. After the second chorus, a piano joins the backing rhodes for a short solo. Overall, a cheerful melodic song.

Track 2 is a song reminiscent of the western-flavoured pop of Daniel Lanois. This time, guitar assists the rhodes in the chorus. Guitar tone reminds the Edge of U2, and the parallel with the folk/western songs on 'Unforgettable Fire' and 'Joshuah Tree' (which saw the collaboration of Daniel Lanois, and the loop is closed!) is not exaggerated.

In track 3, reverberating guitar with light drum chops echo H-era Marillion's elegant music, rhodes are still present.

Track 4 is a lullaby with an "aquatic" vibe, as if the listener was lulled by the waves of the sea. The guitar and rhodes contribute a lot to the craddling effect of the song.

Track 5 is a song of the opposites, where the hesitating rhythms that support the verses (the fortune that I sense...) contrast with the confident straightforward music of the chorus and its lyrics ("I know that I will come back from far away"). Sheryl Crow influence transpires in the chorus (Claire's voice intonation, the guitar work and the drums/percussion play).

Track 6 is a tribute to the music of the New Orleans. Polyrhythmic drums help imagine a brass band marching and dancing. Steel guitar solos in the chorus gives it a country flavour.
