    Michael Jackson's posthumous release, Michael, hit shelves today, but producer Teddy Riley, who worked on the album, told Reuters in the UK that much of the vocal work on the album was incomplete. That should not really shock anyone, since most vocals undergo some sort of studio processing even when the singer doesn't pass away in the middle of sessions. But Riley expanded on his point, saying, "I had to do more processing to the voice, which is why people were asking about the authenticity. We had to do what we had to do to make ... his voice work with the actual music."

    Do you think that Jackson's vocals sound normal on "Hold My Hand," the lead single featuring Akon? Were you questioning if they were authentic or not?
