Wow. Every last thing on B, with the exception of Medicine, is something I could've easily picked. Get out of my head!

And as I've said before, that Rationals track is monumental.

While there are tracks I like on A, it's too stylistically narrow for me, it needs livening up from its middle aged comfort zone.
B is very BCB, but it is good with the Medicine track the only real dud.

I'm not as impressed by B as the above comments but it's got more than hits for me than A.

Tough. Joni Mitchell gets right the fuck on my tits however. A vote against Joni is a vote for life.

Both are kinda mixed bags for me, but B is more up my alley i think. Good to see Osibisa get a guernsey.
