Two strong lists, both with good additional fives.

(two lists I voted against in round 1... and the additions showed little improvement, sorry!)

Patchy additions on both, A just about gets it for digging deeper.

A is picking up steam, B is losing it (despite the great Modern Lovers track).

I like the Gene track, unencumbered as it is by a voice like Morrissey's, :D

This was A's to lose, going in. And A did lose, with those lackluster new tracks. But because of the Black Belles and Modern Lovers, B takes it.

This is better: both lists have real identities and both are strong selections, with the occasional acceptable mistake (nobody's perfect).

I think I like A more overall. The Gene song is a bold selection, but a good one: if you can get past their hackneyed image and Rossiter's Morrissey imitation, it's actually a really pretty song.
