    The best voice in the mainstream music industry today.

    Prove me wrong!

    Bionic sucked donkey balls, though. I think Back to Basics is probably one of the best mainstream pop-albums of the last 5 years and so this was a major disappointment. Her other albums aren't that great either but every new one had been better than the previous one.

    But now it looks like she's on the way down, sadly.

    Don't be a doofus. Even Shakira is better.

    Hell, these days, even Britney "no-panties" Spears is better.

    Much better.

    I rather like KT Tunstall myself, but I'll gladly grant that it's not her voice which is good, but what she does with it.

    Problem is these days, is that with auto tune devices what you hear is all too often not what sung or played.

    What I dislike about Aguilera is that in her pea brain of a singer she feels every song requires vocal acrobatics. She gets really old and stale two bars into any song. I agree with all the posters. Tunstall, Lang, and many others (except Spears) are much better at what they do despite havig lesser voices. I'd throw in McLachlan as another who does great things with a lesser voice!

    Gee, guys, but would you call those performers "mainstream"?

    I mean, if you want to speak about best of the best no matter
    genre or reach, I'll drop Diamanda Galás' name and the thread is over, lol

    You mean female Tiny Tim with a deeper voice? All of the above are mainstream. Galas is a depressing diva wannabe! Her voice is variously described as shrieks, moans, and generally an ululation. Reminds me of nocturnal bird of prey like a harpy eagle with a modicum of vocal training. Whatever she thinks she is she is quite depressing and typical leftist in your face quasi-artist. Quite unpleasant. I'll take Aguilera any day!

    frightening!
