Both tad canonic but largely splendid all he same. B is slightly more to my tastes - I've never got the fuss over ether the Beta Band or Elliott fucking Smith.

Again, two strong lists, and again it comes down to which one has a bit more je ne sais quoi, which one looks more unpredictable and individual. And that's B.

B is one of my less favoured lists left - just something about Sugar and Otis Redding, '007 (Shanty Town)' and 'Then He Kissed Me' that's lacking a little spark, as much as I actually love all of those constituent parts. Aesthetics eh? Good Dillinger pick in the new 5, but not enough to save it here, I'm afraid.

Really digging A.

There's a fair bit of tosh on A but also some gems and overall it does enough

Two excellent lists, but A hits a slightly twisted vibe which I like a lot. Also, that's my favourite Can track; everyone's picking Can this year (hell, I even had 'I Want More' on my own long list), and if you're going to choose a Can track, you'd better pick the best.
