Very tough call- I had to do a lot of listening to decide. In the end, A was a bit more interesting and surprising. But I do want to say that the new five for both are quite fantastic (except for that awful Blue Orchids thing).

This is tough as these may well be my favourite lists left in up against each other. In the end I'm sticking with A which so far has proved a treasure chest of youtube delights and doesn't disappoint with the new 5. Tough luck on B but
