I like both lists, so it's a bit of a chin-rubber, but I'm going with

It's funny how some quite bland, MOR stuff gets tagged as 'northern soul'..which is rather how I felt about the Kline track..it wouldn't get me "out on the floor" put it that way.
Overall I do prefer A though, although the stuff I like on there is pretty tried and tested.

Both a bit meh. A is the kind of thing that looks good on paper but is disappointing on closer inspection. With the exception of the Nicholls track its new additions are weak and give it the appearance of running out of steam. It's enough here though....just

I like B's new three, but it lacks a bit in the variety department. A isn't quite setting my world afire either, but there's enough going on there to edge it.

I have to say B tickles my fancy (though in just about every other case I'd have probably opted for A).

Two good lists at last. Pity they didn't go up against something else so they could both go on....at least for one more round or so. B is very good, but A is more my cuppa.

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

Both are a bit of a mixed bag still for me. Like B's last 3 more, but overall i think it's A.
