Nice additions to A, and the original 10 were better anyway.

Two good lists - but A is shaping up really nicely with quality europop in the additional five.

Two top lists - B sneaks it, but A has two or three songs I feel very bad about voting against.

I find A's additional five a bit more interesting than B's.
But overall B has greater groove and variety.

I think B just edges it here for me. To listen to both lists in full would bring me a lot of pleasure, tho' - almost entirely consistent in terms of quality throughout.

It pains me to vote against any list with We Could Send Letters but I'm going for B. Great Marvin song and cool Mingus choice.

B would be good for me and improve my suspect musical taste no end. A however just has too many great crappy pop songs.

Both are pretty good; being a jazz agnostic, the Mingus does nothing for me and the Go-Betweens selection is pretty quixotic, so the additions are unconvincing. However, despite the excellent Abba and Propaganda additions for A, it keeps its nose in front in this match.

A is decent, but B gets it with brilliant add-ons to an already fine list.

A, because I can't vote against their next 5, I'll feel bad.
