I like both of these lists, but B just has a better mix.

Both lists have some really outstanding selections. I hate to vote against any list with Neu! in it, but...

Not convinced by B's little-known but hip soul picks, but it gets there in the end by being more adventurous. Still not absolutely convinced.

Both good lists but A delivers. Echoes Myron really seals the deal for me!

There's absolutely nothing wrong with "A" (indeed, I would've voted for it over other contestants), but B's new 5, which mixes Tricky's finest moment, with Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Al Green and an interesting track by someone called Alice Clark, along with the early hits by the Clean, Funkadelic, Modern Lovers...hell, it's all kinds of excellent!

A fine matchup, but B takes it.

Both have some great moments, but B is more inventive. Absolutely great Soft Boys pick too.

A bottoms out on its far beyond woeful first track, and picks up big time towards the end. B is good, and undeniably has the highest high with "Wide Open Road", but something about A keeps me coming back to it.

A, but you really have to know how fucking disgraceful that fucking Stone Roses song is.

A for keeping me in mind and including some of my favourite songs. Now, is that cheque in the mail yet?

Shangri-La is the best thing The Kinks ever did as is Echoes Myron from GBV.

Close call, but I think that B's new five are slightly more my thing.

B remains an interesting list but I'm afraid it's overwhelmed here by A. That run from Cohen to Muddy could just be the competition winner ( The kiss of death - official)

No contest - B is really showing up the limitations of A. Out of Tricky, Al Green and Neil Young (the big-hitters on the new 5s for me) I could only really see A picking the Neil Young, and that's telling.
