can you be more specific?

I was going to say 85 - 92. He had different sort of peaks at different times. 80's raw power peak, 90's falsetto peak

I'm gonna have to agree with that. Falsetto as macphisto singing lemon or dgpfycc is absolutley And the 80's --rattle& hum , lovetown... guh. Raw Power indeed.

I don't mind the falsetto in Lemon, but I think part of the reason is because I much enjoy the portion when he slides from the false into his normal voice.

"And I feel, like I'm slowly slowly slowly slipping under"

Some of Adam's best work too.

From 2006 on, we definetly have a new peak – after so many in the past. Take the Rostock gig in 2007 for example. 40 seconds from minute 1:43 on – that you might call a peak. What a voice!

2002-now. Not that I don't LIKE older songs/tours/vocals, but technically speaking, he has been singing much better.

Indeed. I really can't tolerate large doses of his JT Tour/R&H album voice (although I do like it in small bits, and he sounded great on the JT album).
