I love the three additions to B and it was already one of my favourite lists in the whole darn shooting match. A has improved its overall quality with its additions but falls far short of it's opponent. Quite a convincing

Hmm, an old friend from another music board just recommended Courtney Barnett. Flavor of the month? I hate the singer for Superchunk even more than the singer for Galaxie 500, and anyway list B's new tracks are better.

Close thing, this one.

On balance, it's an A

The last two selections in A are the same link.

This is the one I have to spend some time thinking about, but I thought I'd bring it up right away so it can be corrected. I'll be back...

EDIT: A doesn't need the Bat For Lashes to be wonderful in order to get my vote.

Both have good moments, both peter out in spots. One just has a slightly better flow.

I think we know the answer to that. :x Too many no-listen mofos, that's how.

Really enjoying both these, well done guys/girls.
It is so great to see Superchunk in A, and there's a couple of personal faves like 'Sorry' which I love. But I think B is a bit stronger overall, and if it's a battle between the last songs Madge would take it for me.

To be fair tho, maybe they knew the song and didn't need to.

I'm liking both but A just squeezes it on the back of its recent additions.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

I'm afraid the Easybeats just can't hold up A on their own anymore.

A is an unholy mess. Credit for its anything-goes attitude but I think B is a nice list overall.

I can't vote for either of these. List A was the worst list in the competition, but has upped it's game a teeny bit. List B was a bland list, and hasn't rectified that in any way (though the Barbara Acklin was ok, if BCB-porn, I guess).

Abstinence.
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.

I liked that Madonna tune much more than I anticipated but Elevator Operator has had me grinning for months now.
