List A is boring guff. Even the reliably madcap Captain Beefheart is treading water here.

List B has several interesting and unusual things on it. The Whyte Boots' Nightmare is a highlight. Awesome.

B wins.

yes, it does.

i find myself agreeing with others on the solid run on A from 2-6, although the rest is alright.

i think B has a groovy run from 1-6, and the rest is alright. that last track grew on me as it went along.

it's a hard pick, really. in the end, i guess B just has more meat on dem bones for me... along with some stellar gweetar work bestrewn along the way.

There's a whole lot of good on A, but outside of Beefheart and The Left Banke (both songs I know well, so nothing new about them) nothing approaching great.

B is a lot more interesting, and has Sister Rosetta. And that Whyte Boots track is...something.

A is monster. Absolutely love it. Lots of good, strong, guitar stuff. The Allah-Las are new to me, and that track is a corker.

Not feeling either of these. A plays it a bit too "BCB Cup" and B just doesn't move me. I am voting A in protest at the unquestioning acceptance of stuff like Sister Rosetta Tharpe even though it's old and boring.

Jeez, someone risks something close to industrial, and it's a band as limp and unoriginal as Stabbing Westward. I despair sometimes.
This list is half BCB-core, half indie-pop. Which seems cynical. Good to see Destroyer making an outing again, it doesn't feel like a BCB cup without this album.Only decent track on the list, anyway.

Ok, B has it, just for the Jackson C Frank and Dengue Fever. I don't need to hear anymore.
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.

Both lists good to great with little chaff but B is more "me"

Nothing to add about Sister Rosetta and the Whyte Boots - only this: it's a bloody stupid band name, but that L.A. Salami track is amazing!
