    Er hat definitiv eine der schönsten und einzigartigsten Stimmen überhaupt.


    He has definitely one of the most beautiful and unique voices ever.

    Kann man das so stehen lassen? Oder muss das unique vor das most? weil "einzigartiger" gibt es ja nicht.

    "His voice is unique, and is one of the best ever." I'd say.
    As it stands your sentence suggests his voice belongs to a number of unique voices.

    'einzigartigsten' übrigens auch nicht. Wenn etwas einzigartig ist, gibt es kein zweites davon. Das kann man nicht steigern.

    I would avoid 'unique' - an over-used word, and would say:
    He has one of the most beautiful and individual voices in music

    Agree; every person in the world has a unique voice - like faces, and our bodies for that matter.

    Even identical twins can't be really identical presumably - exactly the same number of cells e.g.? :-)

    It doesn't jar like "more unique" etc., but should one say "most...individual..."?

    most outstanding ?

    Another option, just for comparison, might be 'distinctive,' but I like 'individual' here too.

    Or perhaps 'unusual,' if he has some strange quality to his voice. (High falsetto or countertenor; Tiny Tim; Leonard Cohen ...)
