More really good lists!

I have to single out the one or two I don't like, to make it easier to choose.

A - I'm no fan of Tame Impala, and that Wire track bores me senseless. And 'I Feel Love' is - whatever anyone says - a true Cup cliche.

B - that Fluke thing is shite. And so's that Cinematic Orchestra thing.

I think


edges it

B seems to think that the Incredible String Band fronted by Davey Jones of the Monkees is a good idea.

I do not.

B is enjoyably quirky, but A still hits the 'stuff I like' zone more often.

I prefer the stronger personality of B,that version of 'Maybe I'm Amazed' is great.

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

A's good, B's better.

What is it about that fucking wire track?

A's mix of Sly, Tame Impala, Donna Summer and Wire is pretty damn solid.
