A just refuses to move away from its alt-canon safety zone; B is hit-and-miss but much more fun.

A case of forgiving the naff and trying to find the gems here. Cale, Welch and Miles just about clinch it

A, I think, though it's more solid than spectacular.

I have it 35-35. I'll do a page-by-page, though any other counts would be very welcome.

After doing the page by page I agree that B has the advantage, 34 - 35. But I'll wait for a third party to confirm this before announcing the result.

EDIT - I see Moddie's already provided that confirmation. I think this is good enough now. Anyway, A is Magilla.

Hoist by my own petard... :lol:

I suppose I was lucky to have gotten this far and I had to go through a tie-breaker in the previous round. I thus decided that if I had to endure a tie-breaker, then I'd be true to my tastes and stand or fall on my indie leanings, hence the below five being added.

Marianne Faithfull- Witches' Song
Modern Lovers - Hospital
Nick Cave - There She Goes, My Beautiful World
Spiritualized - All Of My Thoughts
My Bloody Valentine - Several Girls Galore

They very narrowly got me through and I only narrowly lost this round (to a certain extent, that's a blessing in disguise, going through another tie-breaker would've been insufferable).

For what it's worth, had I gotten through my next five would've been:

Culture - Black Starliner Must Come
Keith Jarrett - Country
The Sonics - Psycho
Poloyphonic Spree - It's The Sun
Arvo Part - Tabula Rasa

Anyway, congratulations B and good luck in the next round.
