Don't think much of B. But it's a whole lot better than A.

B for Slow Death by the Flamin' Groovies - in at least three lists this year, including mine. That riff just makes my head spin.

This tie is really close.

A was wearing a cardigan the first time it huffed amyl nitrate and tweaked the nipples of the giant gay man it had been dancing with all night. It put its pipe down and got fucking busy.

B is quite a milder proposition but contains more than enough actual tuneage to carry it forward - even though it won't be slumping against the door jamb and just moaning when it finally gets home.

B.
Good.

Like both lists, both have variety and personality, but ultimately I think A both gets it right more often and seems the more sparkly and unusual.

God alive, two bloody awfullists.

I guess it's A, but I don't care for either.

B.

A has many high points but has, inexplicably, weighted itself down with too many downright wretchedly awful tracks to overlook at this stage of the game. Fortunately B still has plenty to like.

Two superlative lists, basically. However, I feel that A is just a little closer to my tastes and takes a few more chances. Besides B knocked me out and I've already voted for it enough ;) . No, I singled out A previously as a list I could get behind.

Two of my favorite remaining lists. Despite Frankie, I have to go with A
