Beyonce's Lemonade is critics' top album of 2016

Beyoncé's politically charged visual album Lemonade is the music critics' favourite album of the year.
    
The record, which tackles themes of black empowerment and female identity, topped a "poll of polls" compiled by the BBC.
    
It beat David Bowie's Blackstar, which was released two days before his death in January.
    
Third place went to Frank Ocean's Blonde, a sprawling, impressionistic take on art-soul.
    
Beyonce's sister Solange also fared well as her soulful album A Seat At The Table, a thoughtful portrayal of the struggles faced by black women both historically and in 2016, came fifth.
