A is esoteric and has some tracks I like (Tusk, MCMrL, Japan) but also has Beatles and Beach Boys (I'm not big on either), and prog and heavy are not my bag.

B has power pop, Funkadelic and a version of Satta Massaganna I'm keen to hear, so I'm going for B.

I'm not big on Ryuichi Sakamoto and I maybe would have preferred a different Traffic track, but the Beatles and Weather Report are fine choices IMO, plus Mac/XTC and Beach Boys, so despite the Black Sabbath

A it is

although fair play to B for Funkadelic/Meters/Otis

Were I still in I'd vote B on the same basis


Clearly it's how a lot of people are voting.

Oh goody, voting time again. Hmm – the Conservative party (A) versus Labour (B). Call this democracy? A is a clueless load of rank hypocricy, whereas B promises much but actually delivers the sensation of having one’s faced rubbed in dogshit.

A for dear old Margaret Thatcher. And because I always vote with Matty!

Despite the wonderful Berts Apple Crumble, it has to be A (despite the Sabbath track)

I like the look of both lists. Big marks for A for including the sublime Feel Flows, and I quite like the overall eccentricity of the list ( the hysteria of Four horseman for instance), but B is closer to my tastes and the inclusion of The Quik is inspired.
B it is.

B. It intrigues me, despite not having a potential vote winner like Feel Flows.

This is tough...do not even know some of the tracks listed (Sakamoto, Aphrodite Child, Japan, Ken Booth, Jah Division, Notor Big v. Led Zepp). Just based on familiarity, I'll choose A (but that is tough as I am not a big fan of the Mac).

Well, there you go Dog. Wrong again! The Count wasn't even born in the 80's.

A shit list, deserving of the boot.

I heard your list was so bad that Jan Tapioca elimated you before the first round even began! :twisted:

Yes, since it comprised the first 9 songs on Arrival plus "The Gates of Delirium", he figured it was some kind of weird cut-and-paste mistake.
