B by quite some distance, though both are good.

A for me, although of course both lists are way too 'BCB' and 'safe', and not obscure enough by half.
I think this competition has been poluted by people picking records that the voters have actually heard.

I was really harsh towards A in the last round and I feel bad now, especially as they've added 'Eye Know' and 'The Man Don't Give A Fuck' - two picks from the toppermost draw. It does hang together, even if I think it's a tad predictable. Yeah, it picks great songs but we all know that's not the sole remit of the cup. If everything was on the De La Soul/SFA side of obvious, then it would get my vote.

But B pinches it. I think this really does come down to a very shifty and fine notion of that line of obviousness - if you can get really close to it, as close as possible but not cross it then you're going to do well. B does that. Tracks like 'Skylarking' and 'Who Knows Where The Time Goes' are paradigmatic tracks, but not stale in any way.

This was a really tough decision.

I do like both lists but B has a little more daring, and some very good reggae, which swings it for me.

Both lists have plenty that appeals to me, so this is a difficult decision. I'd actually say there are more great songs in B, but there's also some stuff that's a bit meh. Meanwhile, A holds together so well and has no obvious weak links. And the addition of the wonderful Black Box Recorder suggests a sense of adventure that B's rather Mojo-approved selection lacks.

A just gets my vote then.

I prefer B, I just think it'd be more interesting to listen to.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D
