B is brave to use that Oasis track. Good for you.

Today the idea of fun prevails over the concept of excellence

Pretty easy choice, this one: A is mostly my kind of thing, B mostly isn't.

It has to be B despite a horrible new five.

There's a lot to like about B, plenty of the kind of pop fun that BCB doesn't acknowledge enough, but some real misstaps as well. A is perhaps more lacking in that fun, but somehow seems solider. When it steps outside the standard BCB comfort zone, it seems a bit surer of itself. See that great Cabs choice.

It's very close, but I'm going for A
