I love the Stones but Can't You Hear Me Knocking rubs my tits raw. B.... I'm digging the Kastle tune and it has one of my favorite Dream Syndicate tunes (not to mention some of the tastier previous 10).

Very very close. A has some songs that start well and then go downhill ('Stay With Me', 'Can't You Hear Me Knocking'), a couple of songs I like a lot ('Pink Frost', 'Coz I Luv You', 'Big Bird') and some tripe (Darin, Zombies).

B strikes me as just a little more consistent - 'Buffalo Stance' still sounds great, and the VU, Beach Boys, and Craig choices are splendid.

It's tough, but B gets the nod.

B

The other list's new five let it down.
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

It's very tight but just B, which is coming together nicely. Shame on A, which I like quite a bit (and though I thought I'd voted in every round seems completely new to me - either I missed one or I'm getting that BCBurnout thing).

Gotta be B, though I like both pretty well. The Dream Syndicate song is a nice touch.

I'm presuming A got the bye in round 1. Didn't need the luck. Good list.

Very close, but I'd probably reach for A if I was gonna listen to one I those now - despite the presence of a few favorites on B.

Oh, that makes my comments about its new 5 look pretty silly. :oops:

I still prefer the other list. Sorry!
