Initially, I wasn't wild about A's additional 5 but had a listen to that Doomsday track and it's a killer!

Two great lists, as you'd expect at this stage. Hats off to the compilers. It's a tough choice but I'll go with the marginally stronger new five.

I've been right behind both lists, so this is difficult. Just about B on the strength of the overall list, but you'd happily spend time with both.

Tough, but I think Lady Orange Peel, State of Independence and Street Life seal it for B

Close one. Something about A is forceful but I think most of the great songs here are on B.

I've been avoiding the contest, so I'm a bit late to this, but A has 'Forget All About It', which it probably got from me, so I'm going with A.
