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

B
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.

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.
