Though impressed by A adding Smokestack Lightning, B nudges it.

B


I'm shocked and appalled by the number of people who I'd normally vote with who are going for B in this match. It is safeness personified. Anyone looking to see itself into the latter stages with as watertight an additional 5 as this needs a kicking.

A has my favourite Clash song and a John Coltrane track. It takes me to slightly unexpected places. It's groovy.

A.

Well I can't see that. I think B goes for quite a few off kilter but really good tracks from the likes of Frank Wilson or The Passions. Not the kind of acts that will get written about in the history of music, but B doesn't care about that, it's going for the song. When I look at A on the other hand it seems dominated by a lot of narrow early 90's indie, I don't think it has the spark or originality that you suggest. Still it'll probably go all the way like it did last year.
However I would agree its additional five are better.

B steals it at the death.

To be honest, I'm barely looking at lists beyond their +5s. B's is all good stuff but stultifying in the extreme.

Sorry, I don't normally do this bitching thing - I feel pretty terrible! :oops:

I can only count three 90's tracks in A's list. Whilst these are indeed all indie tracks, out of a list of 25 it's hardly a high proportion. There are actually more 90's songs in list B.

The two best lists left in the competition by my reckoning.

A but just barely.

A. Both do better with the old than the new, but at least they try, unlike some...

Problems here.

I'm unable to count the last 2 votes as they're out of time so it's..

A - 23
B - 25

Sorry to A - who is Strider.
