Two comparatively weedy selections at this stage, better lists will go out in this round. I think B has a bit more I like.

Some nice things on A (Frank, Zevon, Momus, Altan). Some right bollocks too. But it seems to come from the heart whereas B still feels like it was knocked together by the BCB Cup Committee.

i aint sure i voted for either of these lists last round, mwhaha, not that it matters. i think they both have all sorts of freaky variety and keeper tracks. roxy me, baybees. as far as the new fives go, the shangris and that altan track are beluvved by me in A, and i dig the heptones, meters and ultra vivid whatever in B. A has more kathish stuff *and* more anti-kathish stuff, B doesn't have as many kathish highs, but it never pisses me off, either. mwhaha.

i dunno, it's close. what a muddled, befuddled world.

hell with it. maybe i just woke up liking the type who wants to make me smile and piss me off at the same time. sanity is overrated.

I still like A more, although I might not have gone for that particular Momus track.
