The Golden Melody Award for Best Vocal Recording Album (Chinese: 金曲獎最佳演唱錄音專輯) has been awarded since 1990. From 1990 to 1996 there was an award called Best Recording Album designed to honor quality engineering for pop or instrumental recording albums; The award was discontinued from 1997 in a major overhaul of Golden Melody Award categories. The award category re-emerged in 2015, but was divided into two new awards, the Golden Melody Awards for Best Vocal Recording Album and Best Instrumental Recording Album.

The award is presented to the audio engineer(s) on the winning work, not to the artist or performer, except if the artist is also a credited engineer.
