    Obviously ten but far from my favourite by Miss Britney. In actual fact I prefer the acoustic guitary covers of it (sung by men) :shock:

    I’m going to rather rashly declare Britney to have my favourite female pop voice of all time, at least in terms of this kind of genre. It’s very PARTICULAR :disco:

    CARLY RAE SAYS HI.

    Carly has the ULTIMATE pop voice. Sweet, heartfelt but still has a surprising amount of power to it. A tonne of her songs would sound SHIT if it wasn't her voice. Most certainly if Brinty had sung them.

    Britney Spears has always had a shit voice. Her songs in a way are good IN SPITE of her voice.

    She's obviously no great shakes in the vocal department, but I absolutely think her performance is key to ...Baby One More Time's success. She sells the living daylights out of it.

    The first album singles in general, she sounds more engaged and richer than I think she ever did subsequently. Born To Make You Happy is obviously another great example.

    There's definitely a strong element of EFFORT on the first album and even though many of the songs are mediocre, there's tons more investment than at any time subsequently. Then again, at that point she wasn't "Britney Spears" - she was just a kid living the dream of recording a pop album.

    There are some nice moments on the Oops!... album as well - but by that time she was definitely starting to inhabit the songs as "Britney Spears" and ramping up the vocal tics. By the third album it was completely endemic.

    Her vocals (or lack of) were never REALLY an issue when she was a pop frontrunner because it was clear that most songs were written FOR her and structured around her trademark style of delivery. It's much more limiting now for a NUMBER of reasons, but there's a definite sense now that the label are grabbing at songs that were probably intended for other acts - or at least, certainly weren't written with the intention that they'd be performed in such a...choice style.
