You could cobble together an OK list from the highlights of each list. A's has the best songs in the tie (Czukay, Shelagh McDonald) but it shits the bed with much of what's left. B majors in Goth Dance.

Nah, can't vote for either.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

You're a fool. You'd quite like that AC track if you listened to it without knowing who'd done it (for a couple on minutes, anyway) and the Spoon track is the best thing in either list (I'll have to strike it off my list).

A is too preppy for me.

The hardest one to pick to date.
I'm swayed by some of the tracks listed that bring back good memories (Tuxedomoon- definitely overdue for a re-evaluation) but on the basis of enjoyment and new sensations I'll give it to

Wildly inconsistent these. I like more on A on balance.

After listening to both and finding stuff I like and dislike on both, I guess I like B a bit better.

B for me.

I find myself agreeing with the Nomad a lot. Is this something I should seek help with?

Not much appeals here. For Shelagh and the Nits (although both did better).........

Both very patchy. I think A appeals more.

good of |B to out himself on Youtube. I'd have prefered some others on that list more TBH Kevin Tihista for ALice Cooper for example. Anyway Betty Wright and Spoon see him through
