Hmm. I'm not that keen on either. B has more songs I love but its a bit tired looking. A is more idiosyncratic but is patchy. Don't want to abstain so will come back to this.

Edit: a halfhearted A

I like both of these, but all the lists I can get excited about are gone. I like B's additions more, and A still has a couple of dull moments, but it still has its first two and its last two. Standard BCB choices though they may be, their continued presence is some kind of small victory in the current climate of forced eclecticism. Small victories, I'm realizing, is all we have left.

Wish I could be more enthusiastic about it, but it's the best remaining list. For the win.

I still think A's great. They know where it's at. You naysayers should listen to the Dee Edwards track.

A is a good mix. Not everything on there works but it scores on its roving eye, some interesting and exciting obscurities nestling up against some good old heavy hitters.
B is still far too BCB-comfort-zone and just doesn't inspire, though what it does pick is largely good stuff.
