To me, this is a huge, HUGE issue that a lot of bands seem to overlook. It is a sensibility that comes with many hours of playing in bands, playing with other people, and being comfortable with your instrument.
To be able to mesh your voice into the music rather than simply overlay it, comes with a lot of experience IMO.
