A tough match-up, but B has more of what I like.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

A has lots I like with a bit of nonsense mixed in, B has lots of nonsense with some stuff I love mixed in. First easy choice of the round.

I hate Music Sounds Better With You with a passion you can only dream of. Luckily I also like A.

Not sure I can choose. Both good lists, neither stands out as being especially mindblowing.

Will come back to this....

Ooft. Half of those tracks are diamonds. Pity they're almost evenly split between both lists.

B ain't bad, it's modern picks are pretty good. It's coming down to Grimes v Perhacs for me and Linda gets it.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

The opinions of this poster are subjective. That’s how opinions work.

This is another tough one; again, two good lists that deserve to go further. I appreciate B's modernist stylings but it also has a couple of things I find particularly objectionable. A isn't as snazzy, but it works a bit better holistically for me.

Two mixed bags but B has the higher crap quotient.

A has better spelling than B's Orchestra Boabab. I like the songs better too; especially Linda Perhacs.
