A pavlovian reaction to chosing early ISB.

Didn't we just palaver about 801?? Seems like one person was testing the waters to see whether this track was suitable for inclusion!

B for me.
A would have gotten my vote if it didn't have ISB in there.

A is much better, besides the fact the other list has Lou Reed in it.
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

Ultimately there's more on A I like (although I can think of a lot more Prince and Supremes songs I would pick over those, but that's a minor quibble). Big props to B for Larry Jon Wilson but

I like all the tracks on the first half of A's (apart from the pretty boring ISB track) but the second half seems far more interesting and fun. B, however, just seems a little more interesting throughout and the Knife tips it over the edge.

Tougher than it initially looks.

Two of the more personality-laden lists remaining. I'd love to vote for both. But ultimately it comes down to which is more consistent. B wins the Beach Boys battle but A wins the war.

B has a fine thing or two, but I find "Go Now" to be pretty tiresome. The swell MBV pick isn't enough. And, hey, I like A's list well enough.
