I guess B, with regrets to A, whose list I would have voted for had it been paired against practically anything else.

A

Although if it's the person I think it is I should vote against it because he put my list down in just about every round. :x

Still, it's a cracking list with very little misfires.

Why must every list I like eventually sully itself with the likes of Pulp? :evil:

A anyway, I guess, though B cuts it close with the new five.

Pound for pound, I probably like more of A, but the things I like on B are more important.

B.

There's actually quite a bit of similarity, stylistically speaking, between these two lists, even if B skews more "alternative" than its opponent (great Huskers, Fall and Beefheart choices), but I think the choice in each's Wire tracks say quite a bit- A chooses the concise, punky "Fragile", B chooses the more edgy "the 15th". In the end, both are two lists I'd happily listen to a lot, and seem to get something very BCB, in a good way. I'm picking A, but only because its hit-rate is slightly higher.

A, but what is Flipper doing on such a fine list?
