Real mixed bags.

I think B is slightly less likely to have me reaching for the fast-forward...

These two lists are about even in my eyes, but I like B's new tracks more, so

B.

I like parts of A and I dig the Fever Ray but B is strong throughout for me.

Liked B to begin with, like the new ones even more.

Bert Jansch will always get me on any list's side but B is just better overall anyway.

This is a bit tough, in that B is one of my very favorite lists, but I like A's new ones better.

Good match. I enjoy quite a bit of A, especially the first few, Massive Attack and the Fever Ray, but there are a couple there that aren't my cuppa.
On the other hand it's hard for me to find much I don't enjoy on B. Lovely JT-era Supremes pick, and the Jansch is a corker.

A has some good things but there are a few that I really don't care for as well; B is pretty good if a little bit broadsheety.

The addition of Bert Jansch could have had me struggling here, but luckily it's not one of his better efforts, and doesn't rescue a fairly dull selection. The new additions to A aren't particularly impressive (FLA must be the only mid 80s industrialists I never liked), but it's still stronger than the opposition.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

New stuff has not improved A much, but still head and shoulders above B

B

if that list keeps picking good tracks and having lucky draws it could go all the way
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
