Do you clever people who know everything have any idea of a definitive list of what Tom's done vocals on?  Seems to be a few tracks i dont know the vocalist and am starting to wonder.  I'm not really clear what he sang on further either?

Well I'll make a comment about Sometimes I Feel So Deserted. Although Kenny Bobien gets a writing credit for the track, I don't believe he gets a sample credit. That ain't Kenny's voice on the track. I think it was Csar who made comments on the old forum that  the voice didn't soud like Kenny Bobien. I agree with that. The voice reminds me of Prince's alter ego 'Camille' on "If I Was Your Girlfriend", where Prince messed around with his own voice. I believe it's Tom's processed voice on SIFSD.

Yeah i thought it might be him when i first heard it.  But i guess i am asking a difficult question, its not like he's ever been bigging up himself that much. They quite modest really.  I doubt he'd credit it half the time

If I'm right, on the Further album he sang: Dissolve, Swoon, K+D+B and Wonders Of The Deep.

I'm not quite sure I said that, tbh. I guess I only pointed to that reddit link that made reference to the Kenny Bobien sample. I guess they just pitched it a little, because it just sounds identical, just a bit higher.

I revisited EBW9 the other day and thought the vocodered "making calulations to generate sensations" might be Tom's voice too. And also the "lyrics" throughout the track, which I can't make out though.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

For SIFSD, it sounds like at least 3 different pitches are used. I have done that with vocals, where the lower pitch has lost a lot of the high frequency content. Adding a  higher pitched version can add missing frequencies in the high end. This is especially helpful with pitch shifted drums, where you can add a higher pitched version with a hi pass filter to add the necessary high frequency content.
i love chem bros omg!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't forget the modest 'backing' vocals on Get Yourself High!
