A has Wrote for Luck and Three Hours B has a great Talk Talk track but nothing much else for me.

Voted for both of these last round, but I enjoy B more.

A left their two worst tracks and added more questionable ones, but too much of B is dull, despite the Tihista, which I'd really love to vote for.

The lists seem particularly good tonight.

A scores 9 straight hits, only really faltering with the Spirit track (although even that is better than their usual stuff).
Not all of B works for me, but I dig its vibe nevertheless. It's a list with a real personality -no box ticking here - and its highs (Knight, Wright, Talk Talk) are undeniable.

I'll be sad to see either go, but A

A is a better list I think. But I like Talk Talk. And being boiled is HL's most overrated track.

A

Hate to vote against a list that has Blurt and the Beasts of Bourbon but A's just a little more consistent.
