B has dance tracks that take an age to get going, and are then big examples of games being not worth their particular candle.

Always great to hear 'Cardboard Watch' and generally B is far more my thing. A is good as a mood piece but is maybe lacking in stand out tracks.

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

It's nice to see a song from The Next Day, and I'm not ditching the history, but B just..sounds brilliant to me tonight.

B for Brown and Fairport's best.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

B starts and ends great and loses me a bit in the middle. A is a bit 'heady' (and as such is kind of an anti-Coan list, which is as good a reason as any to vote for it). Seriously, though, the total avoidance of WBWG works as it's approached with enough diversity. There's more I love on B, but A has more depth and has less I dislike, so I want to reward it. Plus, looks like it could use the votes.

B has it's moments but all that "old blues shit" and "Frying Pan" are more than enough for me.
