It's a very clear B for me

Very good lists.

A - I'm sure the uptight and eagle-eyed bores of BCB will be wagging their fingers at how 'obvious' the first five tracks are. But they're all killer. And then you lose me a bit. I've never got the love for Neu!, really, one or two tracks aside. 'Hero' is bad shouty Eurorock, not a patch on the glorious 'Isis' off the same album. And Underworld belong in a club in some city in the UK in 1998.

B looks a little more my thing. I'm sick of all the fuss about the boyish la-la merchants The Small Faces, but most of the rest is top hole. You might have chosen the best Huskers track there, and real gems from War, Gene, and the Coop.



It has to be B

I don't even have to listen to all the links to know it's B rather handily.

B is excellent.

A is very good, but there is never, ever any excuse for the Tiger Lillies. I walked out of Shockheaded Peter, and the only reason they are able to record utter cack like that is that I have yet to win the lottery, and hence my ultimate wish list remains unfulfilled.

Agree that A fizzles out. Now, B is great.

B
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

If A had kept up the pace of it's first 5, it'd be a no brainer.

B isn't all the way ace either but it's pretty close.

B keeps getting better- great Mobley addition and the Prince La La track's a winner, though if you'd put on Nookie Boy I'd be ready to hand the cup to you today.

B quite easily.

I wag my fingers at the obviousness of A's first five.

Tut tut tut.

Sometimes I want to hug you.

Marriott and the other overrated midgets with girlie haircuts are ridiculously overrated on here.

It's kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake he's making.
