A's gone a bit mental with its new five, but its a fun list and makes B look a bit boring.

A has spark and imagination, and looks like it would make a great party playlist. B doesn't, though it's pleasant enough for the most part.

Can only echo what others have already said. Much as I love the likes of 'Fortunate Son' and 'Ooh Baby Baby', A is bizarre and a good laugh, which goes far in the company of lists that look like the musical equivalent of Bran Flakes.
