BTS have topped Billboard's '10 Best K-Pop Albums of 2016: Critic's Picks' list!

Among the tons of K-Pop albums released this year, Billboard's critics picked BTS' 'Wings' album as the best. They wrote:

"Nevermind the fact that BTS blew away all K-pop chart records on the Billboard 200 when their sophomore album debuted in the Top 30, 'Wings' is an accomplishment all its own. Co-writing and producing on nearly every track, the K-pop phenoms proved how they can compete with top pop acts. There's forward-thinking production (the guys flip Major Lazer's tropical sound for 'Blood Sweat & Tears' and make Calvin Harris-esque EDM all their own on 'Interlude: Wings') coupled with lyrics discussing topics important to their listeners like the dark side of adulthood and mental health issues.

Not only that, but each member is given a solo song to showcase his own vocal color and preferred genre style. 'Wings' is a good model for any band trying to move itself forward while concurrently establishing its different members. If anyone was confused about BTS' global appeal, one listen to 'Wings' will make that inherently clear."

Also on the list in descending order from 2 to 10 were: DAY6' 'Daydream', EXID's 'Street', Akdong Musician's 'Spring', Dean's '130 Mood: TRBL', Big Bang's 'MADE', Tiffany's 'I Just Wanna Dance', Seventeen's 'Going Seventeen', MAMAMOO's 'Melting', and GOT7's 'Flight Log: Fly'.

"While many K-pop fans find it difficult to enjoy full albums in the single-focused K-pop scene..."  Oh yeah, Billboard just went there.  XD

Woohoo BtS. But don't understand how these charts work. What if you release your album in December of the year.

Then you don't get ranked as high... still, Big Bang released an album in the middle of this month and STILL made it in the list. ^^ KINGS
