I like these both pretty well, but A has Massive Attack and GBV and even B's concessions to BCB orthodoxy are good ones.

Both decent, but B is more limited. I did like its Move pick though.

"Game Of Pricks" is probably my all time favourite song so A pisses it in for that and other good stuff.

A starts poorly (Eminem is a fucking joke) and gets better. That's a wonderful Love song, and it's always nice to see The Ventures.

but B is more my thing

A. Great GBV pick, and an interesting Massive Attack choice, too.

I initially liked the look of both but peer closer and they are both flawed. So, despite some glaring howlers - who ever wants to hear Seven Nation Army ever again? - A carries it.

Not only does it have excellent stalwart picks there is also pop magic afoot on

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Tough to choose between these two. Both are on the good side of mixed. I think A seems a bit more fun.

Game of pricks? Couldn't agree more - see Round 1 Match 12.
