The links on B are all great, but they are so selective that I have started to suspect that the rest of the "less well known" tracks are not as good.

A doesn't totally float my boat either but I like the Tin Tin Duffy choice and that is enough on this one.

I'm having trouble with this too as both are blends of "WOW!" and "WTF?"

In the end I think B has enough to overcome Bjork while A is more problematic. Both are kind of messes, though, and might need a bit more clarity to move much farther.

Nothing (much) wrong with A, but B.

A tough match. Some just not my thing, while other tracks are ace...

Two very odd lists. I still mourn the loss of Balboa and G's lists. So now we're heading for the semi [edit: quarter] finals and I'm voting for a list with Zep and Slayer on it. Ye Gods. But B has some strong female vocal stuff on it, so edges it for me.

Oh, B.

I rather like B's sprawling eclecticism, and the Annette Peacock track (from her excellent 'I'm the one' album) is a bold choice.

Despite the fact that A was deemed better than my clearly superior list in the previous round. I am magnanimous enough to vote for it as the slightly superior list here.
