A still hasn't quite lived up to its great beginning, but it takes it here in a close call.

Both suffer from the original ten being a lot stronger than what's come next and neither are exactly exciting. A has overrated New Order and the sodding Flaming Lips but it does have Dark Globe. Both are very white but there is a bit more variety in B overrall but not by much. Augustus Pablo and The Fall seal the deal...sorry A.....

By this stage, I'm reduced to ridiculous arcane scoring systems and excessive amounts of chin-stroking. Pretty close. A just takes it with the two excellent final choices from the Flaming Lips and Syd.

A, I like the new tracks.
Of course, I was mostly stoned at the time.

For all my reservations over some aspects of A, it continues to pick some strong songs and is certainly the stronger here:

I'll take B - but I don't think I'd actually enjoy listening to either list all that much.
