B. Obviously. One of the best lists so far.

I did the same thing, then I realised where I was posting.

B is goddamn brilliant.

There'd be no room for Devendra or Flaming Lips on my desert island and I'm not so keen on the Beatles or Hendrix tracks in question either. So A.

B has good artists, but less than sparkling songs. A gets it right more often.

Don't know much of these but A wins for having amongst others a wonderful, wonderful Mazzy Star track.

I can't believe I went out to B. It has even managed to get worse.
A for having more balls.

closer together than a fat bloke's arse cheeks, but A just about dribbles through, arse drool it may be, but it is at least winning arse drool.

B was poor at 10 songs and is worse now. A wins.

A ... B's the Pixies and Beatles choices are plain odd and the Elliott Smith, Flaming Lips and Pavement choices can't do it all on their own.

B. There's something about it - it's mostly artists I'd be playing 4 years ago but the selections for those artists are all absolutely spot on. 'Serve the Servants', 'The Gash', 'Say It Ain't So', 'Da Art of Storytellin' ... fucking great songs.
