Some good stuff on A but there's just more on B that grabs me.

Good Scott Walker pick, but the rest of B is very underwhelmng. A again goes for a very interesting and spicey mix and is too strong here.

Don't love either, but A shades it overall.

Probably my two least favourite lists of tonight's selection. Nonetheless, A has some nice new selections, with a funky Odyssey hit, a smoky Tricky track, and a dramatic Bowie selection. In this match-up, it's enough.

A-18 and B-18. Can't stand the idea of abstention. So the favourite track rule comes into play. And that's "Michelangelo" which I seem to remember was on some loser's excellent list.

I felt bad voting against A in the last round, but this time he's made it a bit easier for me to seal my support. I would've chosen a different Tricky track (perhaps "Aftermath," which has a more interesting groove and mood), but the rest can't be denied. So A it is.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

The Tricky choice is great and it's a well balanced list overall. Can't believe I'm voting against GBV twice in one night.

Despite the stellar Scott Walker choice in B's new 5, A has chosen wisely in its new additions. Great mix of sinister and funky.

A is a quite comfortable victor here, it's a very intriguing mix and B seems pretty grey alongside it, despite some good picks.

Lord above! It really is tough to do this.

Erm...A has added 'What Goes On', which is probably my favourite song ever, and then there's the wonderful Odyssey number, too. B has added the greatest Scott Walker song, yet I feel it's the less consistent list, despite having storming Bowie, Beefheart, and Modern Lovers tracks.

A without a doubt.
