A's second dimension is too little, too late and too rote. Bye bye A- you never should have lasted this long.

B wouldn't even need to be as good as it is to get my vote.

A is a fucking marvel, an absolutely blistering satirical attack on the middlebrow tastes of the average BCBer.

Its selection of fiercely obvious post-punk and indie choices, when combined with an amazingly hilarious and desperate parachuting in of muesli-knitting, Green Man attending, Dawkins-fellating, dad-dancing "international" tunes, puts an arrow right through the feeble and misanthropic BCB heart.

Astonishing stuff, it takes real balls to attempt such a full-strength assault - well done!

For some reason(s) you really don't like me, do you? Not sure what I've done to you, but hey.

| wouldn't be up against your precious list by any chance, would I?

Badly judged? Probably. It was meant as a knowing and blunt thrust into the soft BCBunderbelly.

I didn't mean any harm Nick, just my usual objectionable self. Of course I've no reason not to like you - bar your dreadful taste in music!!

Nothing wildly excites me on either, although I should out myself here as someone who thinks Mr Ra is a lot of fun. I would abstain, but it looks like A is getting trounced, and also has more coherence to it as a list, albeit of things I don't particularly rave over, so A.

A comes from a place I like, though BCB will mark it down due to the lack of 'classic rock'. Oh well...

This was A 16 - B30; A was Nick, and often the lists I really like are gone by the third round. Well done A, anyway.

Looks like the hoi polloi was ashamed of voting for your list the second time around, Nick. And the way they twisted and turned their words just to let you down 'gently' were an absolute joy to behold.
Crafty list, m'bugger! Enjoyed the fuck out of it.
