On what album do you think Morrissey's vocals were at their peak?
'Vauxhall And I'? It's a great album but the vocals are nowhere near as exciting, diverse and dramatic as most other albums. Not to me anyway.
My vote goes to 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business', the vocals on 'Staircase At The University' (and on many other songs) put a lump in my throat.
I get what you're saying, even though I voted for Vauxhall. I do think WPINOYB definitely showcases his vocal capabilities/range really, really well (someone mentioned him sounding almost Sinatra-like in another thread, and I agree), but where's just something about the vocals on Vauxhall that makes me feel like he's right there in the room. It's intoxicating!
Has to be 'Years of Refusal'. Say what you like about the song quality, but his vocal performance is amazing, especially on 'It's Not Your Birthday Anymore', which even Moz couldn't replicate live when he tried it. His voice still sounds good on 'World Peace', but there is nothing that stretches it in that way, at all.
