B doesn't do a very good job of hiding their identity, but wins out here. Needs to buck his ideas up for the next round, though...

A's list is now disgraceful and stands no chance here whatsoever. I certainly wouldn't like to go to any of their 'parties'!

B by a mile.

A's next 5 are far superior to B's and earn it a closely fought victory.

Neither terribly inspiring. But in addition to the LCD, Duran and Frankie picks, A has also managed to pick my least favorite song from my favorite White Stripes album. So B it is, mainly for "Matty Groves" and "Second Hand News."

What's this All Saints pish?!?

A, by default (it's actually the better overall, too)

I like A's eclecticism; the only problem is that that White Stripes track is one of the worst cover versions I've ever heard. B doesn't have any equivalent slips and has a heap of great songs.

Wow great Nas pick for A, but B has pulled it out of a brand new bag. 'Nathan Jones' is an absolutely banging choice and anyone who can't see the shimmering gorgeousness of 'Pure Shores' is a bellend.
