Two really nice lists, but I like A most.

There are some duds on both, but A edges it for me.

A all the way.
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

Even if I don't like every track, I like the spirit of B. A has many good things but I can't really get with the cod sophistication of Grant and Hawley, even their names are boring.

I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

B. It's losing its spark and A is getting better, but they haven't crossed. The Public Enemy is nice.

A has some great new picks but I think B's got the greater strength in depth...

A got such a good start but gets worse and worse since. Worse yet, they try to jump on the Terry Callier bandwagon and the "music from the last 20 years" bandwagon simultaneously. Callier's done much better on his own than he did with MA, as much as it may helped his career. B is not much better, but at least they had the sense to pick one of the better Wyatt songs out there.
