I make this A -20, B -26. Anyway, A was Count Machuki, while B's new songs go towards his or her third round entry.

What's worse, I got beaten in a tie-breaker by an extra five that could have been picked by me! Except that crap Associates track...why the hell do people like that?

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

How does this work?

Regarding my list in round one, The Modernist wrote:I love A; every track has that spark and it provides a fascinating journey. I actually have the second track by a different Turkish act. This is the kind of thing I want to see more of and I hope BCB will grant it open ears.


Yet, in round two, The Modernist wrote:While I do prefer B's genres on the whole, it doesn't do that much to wow me - I don't see the originality it appears others are seeing.


What the hell, man?! :)

Interesting that many people mentioned the Associates' track as a reason for voting for B; it does divide opinion, and I suspect it's one of those songs that plays far better in Europe than in America.

I'm sorry CG. I can't really explain the contradiction other than on some days and within the context of particular ties you sometimes see things differently. Yours was a very good list and my comments didn't really reflect that.
I should shut up I know! :oops:

It's much better for me than that limp power pop track you picked. But it was 4 tracks versus 5 for me. 90% is an incredibly high ratio given that in the tie-break before I could barely find anything to get behind.

The Carleen and the Groovers tracks is my best discovery of the competition so far.
