Really really tough... I really dislike elements of B - that run of The Cocteaus, Joy Division and Stone Roses is amongst the most unpalatable triplets I can imagine. And Ulrich meanders on for far too long. Conversely there's much of A to like - one of Barry's finest, The Seeds, Serge, The Groovies etc.

However despite my misgivings I just love the rest of B - The Ronettes, The Stones, Traffic, The Prunes, Family, Moodies, Blue Nile... it's like a selection box that everytime you open there's always something new and appetizing. It's the list that keeps on giving.

So, with apologies to A for that really is a hot-dang list I'm plumping for B. Shame A wasn't drawn against one of the other lists from this round - I'd have happily voted for it.

The sparky 60s picks of its initial 10 are the best thing about B. I really don't like the way it's gone of late.

A has its foibles (to wit: Banhart and Tindersticks) and seems to be on a similar downward curve, but it's less steep and that initial 10, while nothing special in the more exciting early rounds, is starting to look pretty Fresh Prince.

Really like them both but A is slightly more bonkers and I like that.

B for brilliant bold Besnard Lakes pick.

A has some awful nonsense and some fine moments, but while it's very mixed it has a bit of spirit about it while B is consistent, but in the same way a block of lard is.

A, despite several questionable picks.

Both lists kiss the sky and scrape the soil in similar ways. I like A very slightly more.

Grr - two of my three favourite remaining lists up against each other. Down to numbers then.... both have a mix of stuff I agree on, stuff I don't.

A 30
B 32

Did everybody just sit on their blues tracks until the end? Too risky to include those in the beginning? At any rate, good to see them included. A gets this vote.
