Well I hardly knew anything in A but in B I found a hero in Pluto Shervington, c1976 I think so a song I remember from being a kid and is very dear to me. That's what swung it anyway.

I voted B last time, but A's new five do more for me at the moment than B's, and redress the balance quite a bit. Seems a bit unfair, as B's are quite eclectic and obviously carefully chosen. This one is Scotland vs US, I'm guessing? OK, so I'm being fickle and going for A

I don't think either list will win the cup, but B has got a nice addition with the Ad Libs, that I haven't seen in the cup before.
1966 and all that

Neu!, a killer riff from Dio-era Sabbath and an excellent non-album Boards of Canada pick were always going to be hard to beat for me. A nicely jangly Pearlfishers pick was never going to be enough for B - it's A all the way.

A is nice, but B is nearly faultless with great additions (Ad-Libs! Pearlfishers!)

Both lists have improved since the first five, but A's choices are a little more inspired - nice to see of my favourite Sabbath songs in!

This one's tight - I make it A 27, B 28. Can I have a second opinion there please? Thank you.
