    Default What album does Sammy sound the best on?

    Considering all of Sammy's work - Solo, Van Halen, Chickenfoot, side projects, etc..

    When do you think Sammy as a vocalist sounded the best?

    I was listening to 5150 the other day. Production-wise, and focusing only on Sammy's vocal, I'd say he sounded the best on this album.

    I also think he sounds great on Not 4 Sale. His voice has some age on it, but it's still just perfect. And I really liked his vocal take on Karma Wheel. Just awesome.

    The last thing I've noticed is on Sammy and Friends...on "Not Going Down", I think he was really going for a Montrose vibe. I think he does an amazing job of trying to sound like his 1970's self.

    O wait, one more thing. On the Chickenfoot albums, I think it's really cool how Sammy figured out how to sing lower, and let Mike sing the really high registers...that blend of them together...it just sounds awesome. I know Mike sang higher than Sammy with some Van Halen songs, but in this example, I'm talking about how Sammy lowers his voice even more, and it just blends really well on songs like My Kinda Girl and Alright Alright.

    sam's voice to me sounds best on 5150.

    he nails dreams...dang.

    His voice has aged a bit, not alot but a bit. I really like what Mike and Sam were doing on the first CF disk.

    Sam sang a bit different on his first few capital era records but I've never heard a song where he sings "bad". he's a very good vocalist in regards to his overall performance.

    I don't know Sammy's solo work enough to comment there but in VH without question it's 5150.

    5150 seems to feature Sammy at his peak, with songs like Dreams and 5150; however, I think Sam sustains his performance throughout VH. Some folks think Sam strained or screamed too much on Balance, but I think he delivered a great vocal performance on that album.

    Solo wise, I think Marching to Mars.

    don't get me wrong....I love 5150. Dreams and the song 5150 are just like wow epic. Im just branching out and picking other stuff.

    Which I think are just as good.
