America’s music cable channel fuse tv chose Big Bang‘s ‘ALIVE‘ as one of the top 40 best albums of 2012.

(Note: “Love Dust” is the album’s best kept secret.)

After the release of ‘ALIVE’, Big Bang had gone on a world tour. During their tour in America, the New York Times referred to Big Bang as, “K-POP’s heart who will surpass Psy.”
