A is hatz, isn't it? He's the only person I've ever met who has a kind word for 'Danny Says'.

They're both good lists, but I think A is just a wee bit more my flavour with the fantastic 'Persuaders' theme as well as the best track from Country Life and gems from S' Express, Hawkwind and Four Tops. But it's really very close.

A is a little too unfunky for my tastes, but I do like its imagination, which is exemplified by three interesting additions. It holds more appeal than B, which has a few too many lows dotted among its highpoints for me.

That Hackett thing? That particular Cale song? Even if I were still in it (which I should be :evil: ), those would be clues that A's not me. Though I like some of it a lot, and yes, I love "Danny Says" and am convinced a lot of people do, I still prefer B and am particularly happy to see they still have aces up their sleeve with the new picks.

Nice three picks; pop, classical and downbeat. I swithered over Anthem part 1 from Powaqqatsi a few times.

This is a very close match up, and I like both lists a lot. I'm sorry B, but A holds my interest just that wee bit more.

I like both lists a lot. The latest additions by B made the difference in its favour.

I like A's additions.

All that Theme from S'Express and Japan malarkey can go and get fucked though.


A it is.

Two interesting lists. A has more sparks of imagination and fun, but I think B, although more conservative, is more consistent and has enough interesting choices to win out here.
