A is a bit of a dull alt-canon effort but B is just all over the place.

A not quite as definitively as the two other matches but a clear call anyway.

About half of A is stellar enough to make me forget the other half. I like a lot of B too, and eclecticism is all well and good, but far too much of it is lackluster, and the more eclectic it gets the more unfocused.

B for me here.

Neither list is really knocking my socks off, tbh.
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

Down Payment Blues should give B the cup.

I don't like either list... but A has Laurie Anderson and B has Morrissey.

so that would be list A for me then... except...for the fact that everything else on list A is so fucking boring! ;)

Big ups for A with the addition of the Doctor Who because I remember having it on the Decca label I think it was, probably the very first record I ever had.
