"U2 routinely spent a year in the studio...I have a theory: if you put four monkeys in the studio for a year with Lanois and Eno and Lillywhite, they would make a pretty good record, too."

I was hoping for something better from the Betty Lavette track than some warmed up attempts to 'rock' played by a load of mullated session men. You would have been much better picking something from her classic soul period.
Both lists really don't press things home with their extra five here, I'm not that enthused by A's extra five either. Nevertheless A has more moments of inspiration generally and it still looks pretty strong as a whole.

A is getting better as it progresses - and will surely have the chance to do so again. I've a fondness for some of B, but it's starting to struggle now.

Weirdly, I hadn't noticed Another Girl Another Planet on any lists this year... but I recall Shaking All Over... I used both my first year.

Ooh I really like A. The Exciters track is the sort of thing that makes me keep believing.

I think both lists are similar to begin with... but A definitely has more stamina.

I like A.

B's OK, but not that great. It also knocked me out, although that's not my reason for voting against it.

A is a list to admire. B is a list to enjoy.
