To quote Billboard, SEVENTEEN are "one of K-pop's most innovative groups." WOW!

SEVENTEEN have quickly established themselves as one of K-pop's leading boy groups in the past 2 years, and with the release of their well-received new album "Al1," their efforts have recognised by none other than Billboard!

In a very positive review of their latest album, Billboard noted that SEVENTEEN have veered away from their usual "bright" and "brassy" sound towards a more EDM electropop sound, but this major change has worked out for the better for the group.

From the more mature sound of their title track "Don't Wanna Cry" to the more complex arrangements featured on B-sides such as "Habit" and "If I.," Billboard have nothing but praise for SEVENTEEN's continual musical growth.

The review ends with the big proclamation that SEVENTEEN have continuously impressed as one of "K-pop's most innovative groups," and that there's hope the group will continue to impress with future releases.


There's no denying that Billboard are (rightfully) loving SEVENTEEN at the moment, so let's join in on that love by re-watching their awesome "Don't Wanna Cry" MV:
