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

Toss up between familiar and much less so. I'd rather listen to A overall.
He's a simpleton. 200 years ago they wouldn't have let him milk a cow.

A has its moments, but B absolutely kills it.

B..even though the second half of its list is noticeably weaker than the first half.

Another close one, with lists I can neither dismiss nor embrace fully. Morphine swings it for B, while Oasis turns me against A.

Not much wrong with either list, but I like where B's going now. It started off with pretty good choices well within the BCB mainstream, yet has now wandered off fruitfully into more personal territory. I think 'House Of Jealous Lovers' is terrific, and, though I prefer 'Arms Aloft', it's still good to see Joe Strummer's late renaissance recognised.

B has brought in the excitement gang...

I know I like a lot of A and B doesn't give us any links so
