No one ever thought Britney Spears' songs were untouched in the recording studio, but the singer's voice without Auto-Tune is even worse than we could have imagined.
On July 2, the unedited vocal version of Spears' track "Alien," off her most recent album, "Britney Jean," leaked and it ain't pretty. Take a listen:

The video has picked up so much steam online that the song's producer, William Orbit, posted a statement to Facebook explaining that the track is from a vocal warm-up session, not a final take.

Which just shows you that pop stars today are signed, groomed and promoted on the basis of looks and image. Hire a few songwriters, musicians and rent a state of the art studio and anybody can be made to sound good. It’s why most of these pop stars all sound the same.
It sounds like the audio was auto-detuned. It has that weird sound you get when you play a record backwards. The “photo” of her is SO reworked it looks like it came from a Playstation game.
I like it.
There is a copy of the released song below, it’s not a rock anthem or anything but it’s nice enough.
I say it is a medium hit.
I like her for some reason. Seems to have grounded herself quite a bit in the last few years. Can’t be more offensive than the rest of the crap that passes for music these days.
Has Britney ever sang the Star Spangled Banner LIVE, with no lip syncing?
THAT would be one good test to see if she can still sing.
That’s so funny! It’s personal, really. I remember when me and some buddies when we were overseas in the military were going to go to the base theater to see “WOODSTOCK” the movie when it first came out.
One of the guys that had just flew in on the island had brought a square of hash wrapped in tinfoil in his wallet, and we planned to smoke it before seeing the movie.
We did, and I sat there in that movie, and the music was gargantuan! Birdsong Melodious!.....I particularly remember “Wooden Ships” by CSN. Sweetest thing I’d ever heard - perfectly in tune!. That pretty much squared me off that the Hippie, Love, Dove movement was nothing but drugged out nothing.
Years later, I watched the same movie and the same song “Wooden....” and I just refused to believe they were the same!........
I guess that’s what this new-fangled “auto-tune” does. Damndest thing I ever heard.....
bump for later perusal.
I don't like this lady as a human and have never heard her music till now, but this is much ado about nothing. Hardly worth posting.
She can come over and read the phone book to me and I'll pay attention. Just sayin'...
Read the phone book yeah.... but please don’t sing it....
The assets which landed her this career are not in her throat.
It's not really her voice, it's her pitch control. It ain't there. Warmed up or not. It's not like she is missing trying to hit the high end of her range. Thus the need for autotune. Just another example of how devoid of talent most current hip hop is.
Here ya go.

what a pair....
Which explains Taylor Swift....
“No one ever thought Britney Spears’ songs were untouched in the recording studio”
I did. None of these teenager crooners are natural. They all sound 100% digitally edited.

It’s always been that way.
