Too much ballast in A, B it is.

Another close one. A's actually a very good list the more you study it.

I'm sure I voted for both these lists in the last round. Both have fine and varied taste. I'll go with the psychedelic might of the Dukes of Stratosphear this time around.

B is solid, predictable and rather stodgy. A improves with every round. As others have said, the one to watch.
