There's a few missteps on each, but they're both quite good on the whole. I think B just edges it but I reserve the right to change my mind. B has more WTF? in it, but also more things that genuinely excite me (Dr. John, Fela, War, etc. And Janelle Monae!)

B just got a whole lot better with the new five.

I think they're both beginning to flounder slightly with their new five, although the Terry Reid pick was inspired. Generally there's a bit more for me on B

This is far closer, maybe B is slightly more together. Both have many great choices and a few that leave me cold.

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

There's no excuse for Doowutchyalike, and the new five can't distract from the weird choices on the rest of the list.

The new 5 from B are very, very good - Holy Fuck! But, I'm sticking with A. Its stronger overall, imo.
