Voting for the Reader’s Pick for Release of 2016 finished on December 24, 2016. Actually it ended sometime the morning of the 25th because I forgot. Anyway, there were 325 votes for the release of the year. This is a lot more than I thought there would be, but it’s great to see people supporting their favorite releases. So who won?


Reader’s Pick Album of the Year

Aseul : New Pop – 23.7% 77 Votes

Second Place

The Vane : Line – 13.2% 43 Votes

Third Place

Nell : C – 12.3% 40 Votes


The remaining nominations were all pretty close, but Aseul had a big lead to win for 2016. Congratulations to her and hope she releases something new for 2017.
