Two great lists - but (by having just one track I like more) it's :

B
The undefined being negotiated by the unprepared in order to get the unspecified for the uninformed.

Hmmm, difficult to decide. A has more of an edginess about it, but for me, the inclusion of the Stereolab track means that B gets the vote. Close call though.

Crikey, this is getting tough.

However, set closer Feed The Trees is a sublime addition to any team, so I'm opting for A

The Dusty and REM choices on B are two seriously big hitters but A just sounds like an overall more enjoyable listen. So I'll go for it.

A has some good tunes on it, but at the end of the day, B is more on my wavelength.
And it's obviously the best list.
