Both are wildly inconsistent, but there's a bit more goodness in B by a close call.

Both spotty, with some solid (and some less-so) choices but nothing really exciting or unusual. A is probably the more consistent.

XTC, The Smiths and Pixies, what a refreshing selection.

B has too many ordinary singer-songwriter types, though the Murray Head is pretty good. A has the advantage here though requires the skip button.

but please mind your spelling in the next round.
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

"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."

Both have good stuff and less good stuff. Hmm, XTC again... A is stronger, though.
