A

but I'm very sad indeed to see these two lists come up against each other.
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

Neither are even close to blowing me away. A is a lot more obvious but that's not always a bad thing. B looks a bit stretched thin now and the new five lose me a bit although the Milton track is cool. That Gravenhurst track is wet as shit.

Not only the battle of the Rocks Off, but both choose Land of 1000 Dances. Spooky!

I'll give it to B for the Barbara Lewis pick.

The two best lists of the night. I was thinking the other day, funnily enough, that 'psyche' would be a great post-punk pick, KJ's most exciting record. Really like all of B pretty much. I think they could have picked a better Milton Nascimento, but I don't want to quibble too much. Loved seeing the Barbara Lewis song in the mix. Unlucky though A, yours was good too (great Lou Donaldson).
I'm pissed off the way Masked Man seems to draw my favourite lists together. Having given me a bloody impossible draw last night, he's now contrived to get the other lists I like knocked out. Bring back Griff! :evil: ;)

B is a list put together to be a list of cool songs someone likes listening to. A is a list put together to Win The BCB Cup and does not deserve my vote.

These really are excellent lists. Magical compilers at work.

I think B is just the tiniest bit closer to my home, but I might come back and change my mind...

If we were going by the first 10, it'd be A in a heartbeat.

B is heading in a much more likeable direction at this point.

I am a notoriously harsh critic G and will always give my honest opinion of a list. And my opinion is that this one is too calculated and careful, though it's branched out a bit since round one.

B, despite Jacques Dutronc (actually this pick is better than the one in round 7). Also, the Francoise Hardy track is a weedy cover of Mina's Se Telefonando. I don't get along with French pop to be honest, picking it in these lists to vary things up a bit is understandable though.

Neither list is really my cup of tea but this one interests me a bit more.
