Greatest male vocalist of all time. Nobody touches Marvin.

Why can't people just be great? There are so many immensely gifted singers that have done their thing.

Marvin was the only flawless male vocalist IMO.

1. Amazing depth to his lyrics.
2. Golden voice very few if any could touch.
3. Just as good live if not better than in the studio.
4. Longevity at the top.
5. Number of all time great songs.


Dude is seriously the Jordan of music. Nobody has all 5 of those things combined to the level Marvin did.

You have a problem of trying to assert your opinions as fact. You have to fix that. You can appreciate a person without lofting them above the rest, he's an all time great.

Obviously anytime you say "The best" it's an opinion but tell me another male vocalist at the top in every area I mentioned.

All good points. Marvin was a transcendent figure in music for sure.
