what happens to roberts voice in these songs


Recommended Posts

Heartbreaker :30 - :30

achilles last stand 2:30 - 2:34

and theres other one but i cant remeber

it might just be me but idk

On ALS, he probably is singing at an slightly higher register on that line, perhaps a slight Falsetto but I'm no vocal expert so it's hard to tell.

On Heartbreaker I don't hear anything strange, apart from stretching that part of the verse, with some echo. Sounds really natural and average for me.

I hear what you mean on ALS, but nothing on Heartbreaker. :Thinking:

Hell, I'd be more creeped out when Percy does "that" sound at 5:29 - 5:33 on For Your Life.

I know why he did it though ;)

That was strange when I heard that on FYL for the first time.

Ok--I'll show my ignorance here...what is it, and why did he do it?? :)

Robert makes a snorting sound.

Thanks, SuperDave! I'll have to listen for that....

At the time Robert's voice was heavily affected by his unhealthy condition after the accident in Greece. I recall that most (if not all) of the album was recorder while Robert sitting on a wheelchair.

Most likely there was a joke behind that sound, given Plant's sense of humor, as one would find it difficult to come up with that snorting out of the blue in the middle of recording an album.
