Here's where it starts to get tough. The trick is to balance enough variety with cohesion. And picking enough things that actually excite rather than just going through the right motions. A does this a touch better, particularly with the new five.

Close, as both have much to recommend them and both have a couple of things that are new to me and very enjoyable. B just sneaks it, I reckon.

B

But A is very good with BuZZcocks and The Chills.

Visage, Clinic, Massive Attack, Pink Floyd and The Association are my reasons for voting B.

A may acknowledge music before the 60s but gets a nosebleed in the last 30 years. B, however, has assuredly got it together.

B is badly let down by the inclusion of the useless Undertones and the worthless Beastie Boys.

I hope to be backing B all the way to the final if he keeps this quality up.

Nice adds, sir!

Exactly my thoughts. B's new five are a fair bit better but I don't really care for the earlier parts of the list.

A it is.
Good.

Good stuff on both lists, but A is impressing me a bit more.
