Some real trump cards delivered by B with their additional five but I'm afraid A has far too many (at least 4) of my personal favourite tunes.

Two pretty similar lists. This is getting more difficult.

But it's B by a short head - this always was one of my favourite lists and I have a soft spot for "La Femme d'Argent" myself. Also, I think I've worked out who this is.

It's got to be B although A's list is very worthy and could have gone all the way.

Is this first example of the same artist cropping up twice in the same list?

B for me.

Somebody in the last round had two Jimmy Cliff tracks.

Anyway - not that much in it, but I'll go for B, which I think I voted for in the last two rounds as well. La Femme D'Argent, which I nearly picked for my own list, seals it, and the addition of a Peter Tosh track doesn't hurt either. Meanwhile, A still suffers from the inclusion of Missy Elliott.

It's a vote born of ignorance i'm afraid, but my favourite Who song and the better Eric B and Rakim song helps swing a vote for B

Count Five - Psychotic Reaction
Shannon - Let The Music Play
Eric B & Rakim - I Know You Got Soul
The Future Sound of London - Papau New Guinia
Frankie Knuckles - Your Love
The Who - Substitute
Air - La Femme D'Argent

To be fair it's a list i could have gone for, I think i voted for it in the past. Bonus marks for picking one of the few tolerable who songs and some good dance stuff. I've got that Eric B track on my latest JU disc (although admitedly because I've comped the far superior Follow the Leader so many times I was getting used to it segueing into rocksteady tracks.) to be honest any Eric B and Rakim single from around then will make most other choices look dull but Follow the Leader really is the best rap he or anyone else ever laid down, the verbal dexterity is frightening.

But the artschool side of the list drags it down for me and that Tosh track is self mythologising bobbins, to be fair so is the Tenor Saw one on list A but there is some sort of magic trapped in Ring the Alarm, even the hip hop covers of it are great.

But well it's the techniques track isn't it. A song so good posters on here were using the album cover as their avatar the day they heard it.

I have voted for A before and I am voting for it again, any doubts dispelled by the addition of the Mr Wolf track.

Actually, I don't like either a great deal but, looking at it closely, it's definitely:

A. It's the populist version of B and I'm a populist through and through.

Can't possibly vote for anything with DJ in the artist's name so B

Funny that because you voted for one of these list before against mine, in which you liked pretty well everything except one track. Hmmm.

Well, that meant I liked yours even less at the time. You know, I have thought about this - some lists look much better on some days than others, don't you think?

Anyway, could you not talk with your mouth open.

What I actually said was this:

I voted against yours because you had a Korgis track in it - I made that fairly clear, I believe. Hmm.

Yes, you numpty, which is what my post says. Poltroon!

So, you'd rather have a CD of stuff you don't care for than one of music you like with one track you hate?
Perhaps your 'next track' button doesn't work.

Or perhaps you're just thick.

'Big hitters' doesn't mean 'I love them', does it? Or are you thick?
