For this round, I call on my old pals Akerfeldt and Lake:

Fast Paced Vocals:
Greg Lake - "The Curse of Baba Yaga (Live)"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMdwIP9vRWs
He does the fast-paced vocals 3 times in the song, 3:26-3:36, 4:04-4:14, and 4:38-4:48, but if you don't want to hear all three, then the best one, in my opinion, is the first. The parts are very short, with Lake shouting out the lyrics in quick succession, each within a few seconds. What sells me is that he does it live, without fucking up.

Abrupt Changes in Delivery:
Mikael Akerfeldt - "The Lotus Eater"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbcoKpmmHPE
Listen from the beginning to 50 seconds in. Akerfeldt starts with a creepy hummed vocal, then almost instantly switches to his higher clean vocals, then to his growled vocals, back to his cleans, then his growls again. All within a minute.

Apologies for lateness of reviews.

Fast paced vocals:
KeithMoonIsGod  / Greg Lake: Not bad, especially live. 3/5.
Rodney Razorshorts / Hansi Kursch: Another decent clip, sounds like it has less opportunity for inhalation, so 3.5/5.

Abrupt changes in vocal delivery:
KeithMoonIsGod / Mikael Akerfeldt: Scary! 4/5
Rodney Razorshorts / Devin Townsend: Quite contrasty, and the falsetto at the end of the clip sounds almost feminine. 4/5.

Fast Vocals:
Greg Lake - Sounds pretty hard to pull off live. Good. 3.5/5
Hansi Kürsch - Could have been a little bit faster, and with longer lines. Still decent. 3/5

Abrupt Changes:
Mikael Akerfeldt - Excellent for this category. Huge, abrupt changes in vocal delivery. 4/5
Devin Townsend - It's almost overshadowed by the music, but some nicely contrasting vocal deliveries. 4/5

Lake/Fast- Not really very fast nor very demanding in terms of breath, guess it requires some good diction at least. 3/5

Akerfeldt/Abrupt- This guy's ideal for this kind of stuff. The juxtaposition of beastly growling vs clean singing is really a huge constrast, plus if it lacked some diversity the ultra quiet hummed vocal definitely gives credit for the quiet/loud dynamic. One of the best clips in this category so far. 4,5/5

------------------------------------------------

Hansi/Fast- Just like the other, not very fast, but the kinda legato almost non-stop way he sings it gains the upper hand. 3,5/5

Devin/Abrupt- Well, I said Akerfeldt was probably the best until I heard this lol. Shitload of techniques, moods, sounds shown here with some great dynamics. What the hell... 5/5
