Nothing on B raises a flicker except for Pablo Picasso, but even a stopped clock......

A would win it for Jackson alone, I was listening to that yesterday and thinking I wish I had chosen it.

Nothing much in the new 5 so on the original choices it's an easy A

Despite the tiresome presence of LCD and REM- what's with all the initials? A just has more to love. B's inventive and diverse, but lacks greatness.

Not too bothered about most of the additional fives here, although B has pulled the Voices of East Harlem from out of nowhere, and for that earns my vote.

Are Flanagan and Allen contemporaries of Mulligan and O'Hare?

Otway and Barrett's grandads. Their early stuff is better.

Much prefer B's new 5, but much prefer A's original 10. A gets it

There seems to be a pattern here - if you want my vote, choose something by The Triffids. 'Wide Open Road' is just massive, and it's not even the best thing on Born Sandy Devotional . What a band! Oh, and the rest of the list is good too.

Another close run thing. B eventually emerged the winner but 24 - 28.

A was NMB.

Oh well, no shame in that. Many thanks to Griff for all his hard work. I'll recriminate bitterly when I get a bit more time.
