The uptempo 80s ones are great. The big ballads are pish.

  1. Sensational voice, first couple of albums are spectacular. Was great in the Bodyguard too. Completely destroyed by drugs and the toxic people around her. Absolutely fuck Bobby Brown.

Her voice cuts right through me, and not in a good way. No doubt she’s technically good, but I really dislike her voice and the production is very dated on the majority of her stuff. 1.

Always found her voice very harsh, abrasive in a way. Nothing communicative or engaging about it. I guess we all interpret sound in our own ways.

Edit;: Just by way of contrast I absolutely love her aunt Dee Dee Warwick’s voice, so I have nothing against technically good voices.

Yeah same. Feel like she’s a very clinical singer.

Only one song I really like, but it is one of the best songs of the 80s

Also plus points for inspiring this scene

Shrill, irritating voice in her prime but My Love is Your Love is a king size tune. 2/5.

Tragic life, and loads of empathy for that, but the music is just awful. Pioneered the whole “look how MUCH I’m singing!” woaaahhhhhwooooaahhhhahahhahaaaaahhhhhhoooh guff that has done so much to ruin Western civilisation. 1/5.

Listened to a lot of her early stuff as a kid because my sister had her albums so they became car journey tapes. So my vote isn’t really entirely objective but even so has to be a 1. Obviously recognise she is a nailed on 5 for tens of millions of people so I’ll get back to my random electric noise generator.

Genuinely don’t know what to rate her. Probably falls into the same category as Mariah in terms of a great voice singing songs I don’t really care much for.

I’m going with the really in HGATR with this one. She’s not really my cup of tea musically but she was really very good at what she did, and survived quite a lot of shit.

Pure talent. Where on earth did that voice come from. Remarkable.

If someone would kindly dig through the Mariah Carey thread and find my comments there, that would be great. Thanks.

Basically the same applies to Whitney as it does Mariah as far as I’m concerned.

Not for me, at all, although maybe slightly less annoying.

I’ll give a middling 2 Too much dross which spent far too much time on the radio growing up
