If one was to pick a few albums to practice singing to, to help work on your range and sustain and power in your vocals, what are some suggestions that you think would help turn a mediocre singer into something better.

For instance, I watched a Phil Anselmo interview on youtube once, and he said that he used to come home from school and no one would be home, so he would practice singing to Judas Priest's "Unleashed In The East" album, and some of that early Pantera stuff, you can really tell he was influenced by Rob Halford and had some of his style since he practiced with the Priest albums so much.

So, what are some albums you'd recommend?

also notice how Phil totally shot out his voice and is incapable of singing anything he did before Vulgar Display of Power.
Learn to sing and practice scales, just singing along to albums isn't really gonna make you a better singer.

For anyone, but yeah, I'd be happy to know for myself too, lol. I was thinking a Led Zeppelin album, or a Black Sabbath album for the whole "Chest voice" thing.

Asuming your a man,
If you have rough style vocals try some Nirvana Greatest hits or Dookie

Softer voice, try some Foo Fighters

I can't believe what some people in this thread are suggesting.

DO practice scales and practice pitch and sustain and lip shape, etc.

DON'T practice Robert Plant or Sebastian Bach. You're going to blow out your voice if you try to sing that high all the time. You're gonna end up with and itchy and sore throat.
I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer. The future's uncertain and the end is always near.

I'm not gonna lie, goin' mobile looks like Sebastian Bach in the eighties.

do you want to be a good singer?

then practice scales, proper posture, breathing, etc.

do you want to suck?

then pick some random album that's probably not in your range
