Mixing vocals

Hello, when preparing to mix vocals, is it a good practice to adjust the clip gain of your vocal tracks manually in Pro Tools or use a clip gain plugin like defaulter prior to applying compression to a vocal track or bus?

I start by listening to the song and then react to the music and the emotional content- if it's angular and angry I might not adjust anything and turn it up and let it get weird.
There is no one way to the finish line.
