A's more my kind of thing - but I'm not sure its actually either that good nor cohesive. B's is very good in parts but positively repellant in others.

Tough choice.... A - I really can't vote for B's Sisters Of Mercy. I'd feel far too much guilt and wouldn't be able to sleep at night.

B balances some pure shite with sheer excellence (eg; Bittersweet Symphony is absolute cack, Drive She Said is bed wettingly great).

I've changed my mind several times over these lists. I pick a different one each time I read through them.

A before I change my mind again.

A's lost me a bit with the last 5 (except for the George Harrison) but B, which I liked anyway has managed 3 out of 5 I like.

I like A, but fuck me B is good. Thing is I can't remember previously seeing this list (maybe I did and slagged it off), but it is pressing all my buttons now!
