Incline bench barbell curl – I like this exercise because it minimizes the compensation of leaning back to build momentum in curling the bar up. The other advantage is the shoulder-torso relationship being positioned at an angle that puts the shoulders in some flexion(also a function of the biceps since it passes the shoulder joint first). That means the biceps are already active, dynamically stabilizing the shoulder immediately to keep it in place even before the initial acceleration occurs at the elbows. This allows greater shortening of the biceps compared to basic curls when the arms are tucked on the side of the body. With that idea in mind, we can say that the exercise would be great if done at a tempo focusing more on the pause (concentric hold) followed by controlled lengthening or deceleration.
Note: I try to swing my elbows forward during the acceleration to put my shoulders more into flexion. Though it activates the shoulder muscles too, It will not affect my goal of stimulating the biceps at the shoulders compared to any curls in sitting position.
