I like B.

A is really quite good, but B just snatches it.

A
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

a very close call. i think both lists are strong on the whole.

i'm gonna go with B. i think this is one of the few times where the theme behind a themed list works, becuz of the tracks selected and the way they play out. (i actually forgot there *was* a theme when i listening. mwhaha. i just got into it. yeah, i know. weird.)

Plenty to love in B. I also like that there's an obvious theme going with it.

Newsome? Bjork? Ladyhawke? Its enough to turn a guy. Into misogyny.

B. Not an easy choice, but there it is.
He's a simpleton. 200 years ago they wouldn't have let him milk a cow.

A is very good, but B is perfect (I only have reservations about Björk, everything else is just perfect, really hope this manages to get past Round 1 in spite of being a "themed list")

B is a themed list, which always rubs me up the wrong way. It doesn't even have a very creative theme; in fact I'm sure it's not the first time this one's been done. And don't get me started on Joanna Newsom.

A is a bit hard to get a grip on stylistically, but musically it's fairly strong.

Ooh, I like that Betty Davis track, that's got a bit of sass about it, and some quality restrained tub-thumping. Rest of the list ain't for me, but I do like that track a lot.

I love Joanna Newsom, but that album was a borefest, so disappointing. Tara S'Appart might be the worst artist/band-name of all time. I think for the last 5 years or more, the best music currently being made has been female-led, but none of the women in question appear here, sadly.

A. Just.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
