B had a decent first ten, but hasn't really improved. A doesn't take many chances, but is pretty assured in its tastes.

Two very good lists, each with a few mildly questionable picks (though nothing really awful at least). A has a few more meh ones, so B it is in a close call.

B for sure! I was gonna use that Nerves track myself this round, had I not been vanquished in round 1. Most of the rest of B's selections hit the mark as well.

A pretty difficult call, both lists have their appeal. A just looks more like it.

Jeez, I make this a dead heat. Really like the shape of both. Will come back to this.

EDIT: Went eventually for A for the great, less played Impressions, R&LT, EPMD, Spirit, Mekons and the Move. Tough on B, some great picks including a stellar Roxy, one of my top Who tracks, Headhunters, the Cure, Roy O, etc. Really difficult this tie.

A in a close call, the Move are always a winner for me

Nice selections. One or two in each list take some of the shine off, but I think A is more my FLAVA :shock: :o :shock:

Very very very tight. The unfamiliar stuff decided it for me. And that would be the Nerves and especially Hal.
