Marginally B, for me. Wildly inconsistent lists, both.

A is a little too much Greatest Hits, for my liking. So B.

Both have a similar approach, but B hits greater heights.

Not crazy about either, but A seems a bit more box-ticky. B demonstrates more personality, though I can do without Sisters of Mercy and Shriekback yet again.

I don't like the lists today. A without any enthusiasm.

Voted against A and for B last round. And now I'm doing the opposite. Funny old world.

A...if I have to pick either of these.
The opinions of this poster are subjective. That’s how opinions work.

Can't really imagine either of these going much further. I'll go with B, because I was just wondering to myself whether or not we'd seen any Roxy Music yet in the contest.

I'm not on the same musical wavelength as the compilers of either of these lists, I suppose. A has more I like, but it's getting less interesting with the new 5 selections.
