I can understand where you're coming from, but I think you making a tad bit of a sweeping statement there, This Love, Hollow and Live In A Hole all feature some very impressive vocal melodies, granted nothing as challenging wa what he did on cowboys, but to me FBD was the album in which Phil fully left the melodic singing and just decided to growl his way through the album.
