Plant became more of an icon but in terms of singing style and voice I prefer Daltrey by far. Generally much more musical and mature, less womanish "baby-baby-babeeee ahh-ohhh-ahhh babe I'm coming" screamings, but when he had to scream he did it like few others (Love Reign O'r Me being certainly a good example).

Same here, but that doesn't make it bad. Tongue

Absolutely all the above. Approve

Yep. Same for me .

Daltrey. Great singer. But Plant is a good second here.

This. In spades. Even though I like Zep a lot more than The Who.

Roger Daltrey's voice conquers all. Robert Plant couldn't match the raw lust of the vocals in Love Reign O'er Me. Daltrey have a more powerful voice, Plant has a fun voice. Though, I love more of Zeppelin's albums.

For me, Plant fronted the band with the better catalog, but Daltrey's voice and lyrics are far better.

Let's face it, neither are great musical singers, though both are great vocal leaders of the band. I personally prefer Daltrey, less histrionics and more to the point.

Daltrey was unstoppable back in the day. He's lost a lot of his range now. But just listen to Quadrophenia and 'Love Reign O'er Me'. 

Plant also was magnificent in his prime. He's lost his range too.
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...

Daltrey is one of the greatest rock singers of all time. He is staggeringly good. Plant is a decent singer who sounded okay on Lep Zep 1 and never sounded that good again .

I prefer Plant's voice but his insistence on sticking the phrase baby/baby/baby into most songs is a bit annoying.  There are other terms of endearment he could go for, such as 'Sugar Plum', 'Fluff Muffin' or 'Sweetie' to name but three.
Although I don't think Daltrey's voice is as good, he doesn't seem to overuse terms of endearment.  I agree with the comment above -  Daltrey would definitely win a fight with Plant.

oufff very hard polls today! First Floyd Vs Jethro, and now this?Head on wall
They are great singers and they both left a very big heritage behind them.
But there is a voice in my head that whispers "Plant, Plant, Plant".
So I will follow the voice's advice. Tongue

I vote for Daltrey voice-wise, but sometimes I feel like he had no idea what Townshend was trying to say in his songs, trying to make Pete's self-deprecation all macho sounding.  Plant wrote his own lyrics so I never get that sense of disconnect.   So, uh, a tie.
