    Depends what we mean. Are we talking vocal ability or quality music? Kate Bush makes incredible music as do Beach House, Cocteau Twins, Mirah, St. Vincent, Sleater-Kinney and countless other solo artists/female-fronted groups. They don't always have the best vocal talent though.

    If we're talking pure vocal talent, I gotta go with Whitney.

    Kate has got a set of lungs on her too.... but I agree that Whitney had amazing range and a more classic diva/soul voice

    Beth is my favourite singer.

    Good choice with Nina Simone, always liked Dionne Warwick as well

    Also, Adele can screw off. Getting really tired of her schtick, every single song about her exes... boo fucking hoo.

    Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin

    Ella is probably technically the greatest singer but Janis and Billie both send chills down my spine. They truly were special

    I can't pick only one. It's a tie between Vashti Bunyan, Linda Perhacs, Sibylle Baier and Shirley Collins for me.
