Recording vocals-full or phrases?

Hi! When recording vocals, is it better to record in phrases or the whole thing all at once? By phrases I mean like the beginning only in one go, then the chorus in another take, etc. seems like phrases would be easier to redo and edit, especially if the volumes don't match while I'm singing, but then it also could cause the cover to sound pieced together...

What do you think?

Phrases is better in my opinion.

But personally, I usually record everything in one go 3 times, and repeat the phrases where i think needs improvement.

@NaYu Not You, I see. Thanks. I used to do the same as you, but then there were so many parts that needed fixing (why in the world do I always go off pitch just a tiny bit?!) that I've given up on that. It would be nice if I could someday sing the entire song without mixtakes or running out of breath, but that does't seem possible anytime in the near future.

If the wrong pitch is only in a bit you can always try to pitch it correctly. A lot of people use Melodyne but there are other tools to do it (for example, Adobe Audition has a manual pitch changer).
