A is all over the place, but I think the songs are connected by their sonic wit and verve, and that's enough for me.

Nothing that I hadn't heard before in B is winning me over. A has some missteps, but that's a danger when you're adventurous.

AT least A has avoided Willin' and gone for a decent Feat pick. The first two tracks of B made me think Googa was back. As it is B has picked "good" EWF and Dylan picks when there's a wealth of "great" to choose from, Both lists a bt all over the place bit Jack McDuff seals the deeal for A

I liked both lists so this was a difficult choice. What swung it for B was Christine & The Queens which I found captivating.

Two lists where the bad stuff is badder than the good stuff is good. More or less a coin toss but:-

I like both these. Individual, yet with strong songs running through them. I'm not much of a NIN fan, B, but the rest is enjoyable. A is full of big fruity flavours though, interested to see what they might pluck out next if they make it through.

List A:
The Pink Floyd – Candy And A Currant Bun - Not a very strong psychedelic track, if you ask me.
The Champs – Tequila - Memories of listening to the oldies station with my ex in the eighties. And Pee Wee.
Spoon – You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb - That’s what I’m talking’ ‘bout! Spoon is channeling a bit of Motown here.
Little Feat – Hamburger Midnight - Makes me want to say, “Go, cat!"
Marsha Gee – Peanut Duck - :D I’m laughing and grooving!
Stereolab – John Cage Bubblegum - Oh yeah!
X – Sugarlight - I miss X.
Led Zeppelin – Tangerine - I’ve been digging the softer Zep tracks a lot these days.
Massive Attack – Black Milk - I like a spot of trip hop.
“Brother” Jack McDuff – Butter (For Yo Popcorn) - I want fatback and collards for breakfast now.



List B:
Paul Mauriat - Love Is Blue - Cheesy, but evokes my childhood.
Earth Wind And Fire - Kalimba Story/Sing A Message To You - I have to admit I’ve never been as wowed by EW&F as many.
Steve Mason - Another Day - He sounds a bit like Robert Wyatt. “Words in My Head” played after this, and is a better track from this album.
The Human League - Dreams Of Leaving - *Yawn* That was a very long 4:43
Public Enemy - Harder Than You Think - I like the guitar strumming as the backdrop, but still not my cuppa.
The The - Heartland - Nice piano bit. Maybe I could grow to like it.
Bob Dylan - Jokerman - A well-remembered song, but he was verging on self-parody, wasn’t he?
Grace Jones - Me, I Disconnect From You - Never got her appeal.
Nine Inch Nails - We're In This Together - NIN is one of my favorite ways to go loud.
Christine And The Queens - Tilted - I’m a bit annoyed by the music, but I like the dancing.

B needs way more Peanut Duck, so A

Should mention, the link on B's list for the Human League actually sends to a different track than the intended one. "Dreams of Living" is very good, whereas "Let's All Make a Bomb" isn't. Both lists I'd rank about the same, there's some tracks I like, some I don't. A I feel offered me more new things that I enjoyed, including a much better Little Feat track than the first match, and “Brother” Jack McDuff. It's my choice!

B but as has been noted above, tracks one and two could come back to bite.
