Liked the TRembling Bells and the Hummingbirds was pleasant albeit nothing I felt I hadn;t heard before. A wins for having the higher highs even if it has the lowest lows (Mort Harson is just weirdness for weirdness sake and Peaches - Jesus H you are fucking kidding me - a timely remnder of why Sigue Sigue SPutnik were rapidly consigned to the dustbin of history) The el vez was kind of pointless but man the guitar on that is something else and I enjoyed the Mano Negra and Celibate Rifles

Baffling tie up. After listening to around half of each, I'm no further forward as to why you'd select something as hackneyed as The Montecristos or as plain weird as Morty for the Cup. On balance, there's more to like on A but it's a wildly all over the shop selection.

Both pretty good.

A gets my vote, similar thoughts to The Fish actually

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

A is an interesting list with a few missteps (Celibate Rifles, Peaches) and B is dull with a few exceptions (Roky Erickson, Trembling Bells - still waiting for the joy of the Lemon Twigs to hit me, I just find them cloying).

It always amazes me how completely out of step we are :lol: :lol:

I'm voting A because of these two songs!

A gets its points for its own freaky variety and attitude. i loved the first four tracks out of the gate, but then it got majorly uneven for me. my progression after that went no... okay... yay!... okay... no... welll okayyyy!

B is a very different thing altogether. i dig how it's built, how it moves, how it has its own kinda vibey style going on. i really enjoyed it, even the tracks other people seem to dislike.

Despite some kamikaze picks, A is really hot when it's hot. B is just sort of okay.
