A just barely. Like the Stones selection, Holocaust is great (not sure if its Big Star's best), and the Pavement selection is interesting. It is funny how both of these share the same artists and even same songs (Complete Control).

Both cover very similar ground, but A has, on the whole, more I like, or at least seems to have a lot more energy going for it. Decent matchup though, once again, two very similar lists in their approach. Maybe a different Otis or Small Faces tracks might've changed things? I don't know...

B just narrowly gets it for me. Not crazy about the Cure song, but the Specials and Graham Parker tracks are quite good. A pretty close match-up.

There is quite a bit of overlap but it's A. Duchess is great.

The absolute worst thing anyone could say about you is that you were a selfish, moral blank, whose lazy cynicism and sneering, ironic take on the world encapsulates everything wrong with a generation. But you my friend are not evil.

More artists that I'm interested in. Pretty even though.

i'm really struggling with this tie. a quick perusal revealed that i was going to have to think carefully. after a while, i singled how many songs in each list i actually loved in that way that you just do with some songs but there were five each. back to the drawing board. i then identified the song i loved the most but i loved them equally. i rang the samaritans and they told me to choose the one with the best clash song so i rushed back to my computer overjoyed to be able to separate them but to no avail. the cat then suggested that i get a fucking life but it's easy for her, she doesn't own a computer.

i'm going to have to get back to you on this one. :(
