I'm going with A's eclecticism here.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

Hmm. A mod b-side from 1967, just what the world was crying out for. Nope, all the new additions to A are uninteresting, and I'm not voting for it just because it still has a Stereolab track.

Tell you what, Stevie's drumming there ain't bad. But there's not much for me here. Two pretty dull lists augmented with smaller, duller lists. I'll take an abstinence pill.
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.

After starting off a little uneven, both of these lists are heading in the right direction. I think the early sins of A are less than the early sins of B, but now that they have their sea legs, I wish both could stick around.

Both good lists with a few head-scratchers. Very close, but I think B just edges it. I may re-listen later and see if I still feel the same.

A is alright, some good picks mixed in with some less impressive, but I like the overall feel of B more and think it has a higher hit-rate to boot. Nice to see the 'Midnight Cowboy' piece there.
