A, mostly for not picking Bjork.

Bjorks exactly the kind of artist A needs more of. It's worthy but dull and lacking in colour.

If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

Yeah I'd agree with Goat Boy there. There's certainly things I like about A and I'm pleased to see Chris Clark, but as a whole it's all a bit too constrained within its own narrow ideas of good taste. B seems fresher and more fun, even if I can't get with all its picks.

A has some crackers but doesn't really ignite overall. B, on the other hand, has some right head-scratchers but has a more satisfying overall mix. And I should say that the Bjork pick is a highlight. There's too many lists getting binned arbitrarily due to the inclusion of a single artist - the (sorry) Googa 'it has the Doors, I can't vote for it' effect. So, (deep breath), B

That Bjork song is really a wonderful thing. But hey, she's Icelandic and sings in a funny voice. Or something.

A all the way.
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
