A has the better Fall choice, but not much else I care about.

B has about 10 songs I love, so it gets the nod from me.

Christ, these are both better than plenty of other meagre gruel lists (which I may add I've been perfectly civil towards :lol: ) Not sure at all about the latest additions to A but it does have Slow Life, Cold Blooded Old Times and The Perfect Kiss. They nudge it past the commendable but slightly serious B.

B showed me intriguing tracks by artists I have always found difficult - This Heat and the Replacements.

Thanks very much!

B

Although this was a close one for me. I don't want to vote against that outstanding Smog selection, one of my favorite Lennon songs, and that Fall song but overall I'd rather listen to B.

Very nice to see Clinic here. Same for Silver Jews even if I think that's one of their lesser songs. "Please Mr Postman" and "Tell Her Know" might be predictable or canon but there's no denying them for me

A runs out of steam with the mundane adds, whereas B revitalises a boring selection with Avalanches and the frankly bonkers Clinic. It's almost as if the adds have been swapped in error.

Hmmm - on a knifedge, but I'll plump for B

Two fairly good lists. The Replacements swing it for me.

Confused by this one. Thought the incisive comments of my fellow BCB-ers might help. They didn't. So, it's favourite track time. And that's Talk Talk.
