A gets too close to the dreaded mythical "some bloke breaking milk bottles in a garage in Peru" - good stuff there nonetheless

B is my bébé

Two very strong lists.
B is good in a crowdpleasing way, but A goes to more interesting places and has the greater imaginative breadth.

The new additions make this a slightly closer contest, but I'm still going with A.

B is on notice after this last 5- it's Brenton Wood, an overly predictable Saints number and a Velvet Underground one that I know is beloved here but I find far too camp (my least favorite track on Loaded by miles). Its first ten is so good that it's still one of the best remaining, though.

Enjoyed the links on A. And "Nowhere To Run" seals the deal.

Very close but A wins out despite being a bit up itself in the cool groove stakes. The Impressions track is monumental. One or two dealbreakers for me on B but the Brenton Wood track was great.

who can resist Oogum Boogum?
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
