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

Both are strong, but B unfortunately includes Elvis Costello, making A an easy choice for me.
1966 and all that

This is tough but I think it's actually B
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

B, although I like the Terence Trent D'Arby in A...just not enough.

B is starting to look like a contender to win. It doesn't have the individual personality of some of the lists we've seen, but it is pretty assured stuff nevertheless. A is solid but rather uninspired.

I know we've seen comments like this already but I really can't get with the logic. To each his own, I suppose.

As for the lists, I think B's a cracker. Hell, I probably like it better than my own!

B - I agree that this is looking solid and a possible winner. The latest 5 are the least self-indulgent new ones of the round so far. Everyone else is stretching out a bit, making the odd risk, but B just lays down even more undisputed classics. I'd probably prefer some more interesting choices for some of the artists, especially Bobbie Gentry, but there you go... Really impressive.

A is good too.

Both have a few I don't like, but B has fewer of them.
