Both are hit and miss, but I like B a little more.

B has one of the worst Bjork songs she's released. But it has Scott, and a decent Brucie song.

A is not perfect, but nice variety. B tries for the modern touch, but doesn't offer enough surprises.

A. B has good stuff but also the execrable Streets, as well as some other dodgy modern bleepy shit.

Can't really decide, but I'm going for A 'cos I love the Buddy Holly track.
He's a simpleton. 200 years ago they wouldn't have let him milk a cow.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

A doesn't always get it right (boring Eno song, the prosaic Reatard) but King Tubby, Monk, The Who among others provide a steady stream of invigorating highlights. B has quite a number of good picks, but there's too much forgettable contemporary stuff in there.

Investigation into B has revealed why it was wise not to add links. A by a big lot.
