Certainly the two best lists left. Very close but, by a whisker, its:-

A tough one this, A has easily the best song in the new five in John Coltrane's "India" (that was going to be my pick for the next five, good to see someone chose it) and I think it seems really sure of its taste and most things on there are topnotch from the Huskers, Modern Lovers, Fela Kuti, Jerry Butler, Velvets and more.

But B seems to have a lot more fun and energy to it, the last five tracks seem to fit really nicely with the rest and what came before it is generally stuff I'd like to listen to as well.Tough matchup this, to be honest- both lists could've gone through against lesser challengers. But in this case, it's B, just barely. Count yourself unlucky A- though I could go back on this vote, so watch this space!
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

B is as safe as Fort Knox, let's face it. It's a brilliant, yet calculated list. Will it be enough against a list with Neutral Milk Hotel on it?

Yes, unfortunately. Why people are ignoring 90s US indie is beyond me though. B. But if A gets through, you have my support.

B takes a lot more chances and still comes up with the goods.

B really pressed the populist button with the latest 5.

A still has that monstrosity Temptation 87 in the list

I like people who press the populist button, and A is too "Mojo Approved" for my liking, plus New Order choice shows chronic mis-understanding of 80s music, and that's a crime.
