Neither are really my kind of thing. B would have me reaching for the fast-forward less often.

I can't stand Sabbath, the Tap is an oddity and find the new 5 on A patchy to say the least. Its still clearly the more attractive list to these ears.

I'd very much rather listen to B.

Both are too narrow and feel constrained. B has the better tracks though.

Jeffrey Lee Pierce is not quite enough to turn me off of B, which is a lot less one-dimensional otherwise.

I prefer B, but probably won't support it going forward unless it comes up against the winner of match 5 or returns to the winning ways of its first 10. That Pearlfishers track is not good.

"Weightlifting" is a nice addition to A but B is still shaping up as one of the top lists.

I like that Neu track. I'm not familiar with them, but obviously Electrelane nicked their sound from them. Well done girls! That Found song is a shocker: Fisher & Donaldsons are legendary bakers but there are too many cakes in the kitchen in this particular instance. The Pluto Shervington in B is great. I thought the Sabbath one was the most refreshing of them all. Close but, mainly on the strength of first round form,

B's new 5 are hit-and-miss for me, but it's still my favorite of the two lists by some distance.
