BTS is the most critically acclaimed boyband worldwide or in Korea ever

  • So, it is a well know fact that BTS is the most artistic boyband ever (talking about boybands as pop groups, not rock groups like Beatles). They have taken the whole genre to a whole new level. This has resulted in critical acclaim never before seen for a mainstream boyband or a mainstream pop group.


    Here are some facts to prove it.


    This is the average metacritic score for most recent popular boybands:


    78 BTS

    66 Jonas Brothers

    65 NSync

    64 One Direction

    62 Take That

    59 Backstreet Boys


    MOTS7 is the the highest rated boyband album, with score of 82 , followed by BE and Progress by Take That which have 80. Most boyband albums have a score of less than 70, BTSs lowest rating is 74. Things dont change much if we add girls groups, Fifth Harmony being the most critically acclaimed with an average score of 71.


    The situation is same in Korea, where BTS has 3 KMAs daesangs, Big Bang has 1, SNSD has 1. Thats it for kpop groups.


    Just a reminder as we face more award shows and people start talking about quality :danceb:

  • huh. Destiny's Child who only had 58 and are ranked lower than backstreet boys and all other boybands. The way people were talking about them made me think their music was good or something.


    Even Michael Jackson got only 51 for his Invincible album and 54 for Michael...

  • Who even comes close to making masterpieces like this? BTS are the complete package musically, lyrically, performance and personality wise.

    I am glad their artistry is recognised atleast to some extent, though still not enough for my liking.

    The low ratings of all the previous big boybands show how poorly viewed the whole genre is. BTS has had to deal with this prejudice in addition to the reputation of kpop and the language barrier to get any recognition. Its has taken years of incredibly good, outstanding albums to even start getting these scores, though they deserve higher.

  • God, I hated that pretentious Black Swan video so much. Thanks for reminding me of that video.
