Both are fantastic, but B has got the groove. That's enough this time around.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

I make this 35-31 to A, though someone might want to check that.

On the 'Matches to Watch' thread as soon as this match came up I predicted that the voting would go exactly the same way as in the Count Makuchi match and so it proved. The good Count lost by 4 and so did B in this one. It was what I expected as I knew how 95% of people would vote on here as this was one of those matches with two quite polarised lists in terms of musical aesthetics. Very unlucky B your list was great.

your thoughts and comments would be appreciated..

I knew this one would be close but I thought A would creep through. It does highlight a difference in BCB aesthetics quite clearly I think. It's very predictable who will vote for what but we don't seem to talk about it much for some reason.

There have been several matches this round that really seem like 'line in the sand' time for BCB, and yes, the voting seems to have gone according to rote.

Could this round be the spark which ignites the powderkeg that is the Black Cat Bone forum?

Only solarskope can know for sure.
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

For what it's worth, i agree with that score.

Unlucky Matt, your list was a great one. Unfortunately imagination and personality just don't seem to matter much on here any more.

I don't see why Matt's list is more full of imagination and personality than the other. I voted for Matt's but they're both great lists (mind you mine was infintely better!). I just can't see so much of a difference.

Oh please. :roll:
Nobody is making a "drama" out of this except those who keep eagerly leaping in to accuse everyone else of "taking it too seriously" because they make a comment about the relative worth of two lists, as if that isn't the point of the cup in the first place.
It's not as if I'm the only one to have pointed out on the thread how predictable and narrow A is.

I thought the point of the cup was to have a quick shufty as you were eating your morning toast, seeing two lists, thinking 'ooh, that one contains more songs I like on it than the other' then slurping down your toast with your tea and pootling off to work after having voted, without first sitting down to psychoanalyse the thought processes that went through the list writers mind first, oft ending in a spectacularly wrong, patronising and over- scrutnised summary of the aforementioned.

No, you weren't the first, but you were first within my sights t'other day.

If someone can't see the difference in the two lists then I give up, frankly. It's as clear as day.
