Not even 'Thirteen' can save B

A. I've got a feeling it's a bit too obvious to win the cup, but it easily does this round for me.

A

Each has one "what were they thinking?" song- Stone Roses? Fucking Wilco? :shock: , but lots of great stuff on both. Again, rather than break down the motivation, etc., the tiebreaker is which has the better songs. I wish A were a touch less obvious, but sometimes it really is obvious what's good and what isn't. Toughest one to call so far, I think.

B looks like a much more personally loved list and, even if it didn't, it'd still take something special to get me voting against The Soft Boys, Paul Westerberg and that particular Big Star track.

B

B

Listen to Jeff K at this point. Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen help A's cause a fair bit, but is let down by the dire Stone Roses.

B suffers from Wilco presence, but, as Jeff alluded, the mere presence of Simply Saucer is a huge plus in its favour, while The Fall is a bonus.


Good thinking, mate!

B leaves me cold (bloody perishing actually).
A at least gets me nice and warmed up before turning the heating off half way through.
