A's new five have lifted the list up. Always nice to see the 23rd Turn off. And the Screaming Blue Messiahs! Plus PJ fucking Harvey.

Sorry B but...

fucking shit Clash song, fucking rubbish tinky-tonky Durutti Clown, one of Chilton's pointless 'experiments', the here-today-gone-tomorrow Art Brut and Sparklehorse - and to top it all off, the frauds PJ Harvey and Boz Scaggs!

and the TERRIBLE "Shirley Collins" and the MOST BORING Aaron Neville!

who is this crackpot?

One of them has Screaming Blue Messiahs though. Me personally, I can ignore anything for a moment of the Screaming Blue Messiahs.

Still liking the cut of A's jib. That's how to do eclectic - be quirky, take some chances. Not everybody's gonna like everything anyway, might as well do what you love and let it fit together however it does.

The Shirley Collins is a bold and wonderful pick - don't know what everyone's dang problem is - but the rest is too hit-and-miss for me.

A's most recent five hit it out of the park.
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

Despite a handful of tracks I love on B, it's A here. B has a nice flow in parts, and I quite liked the Ben addition, but A just grabs me more. The choices and mix of styles seem strong and even throughout.

B's new 5 don't inspire. The weakest of the eight new sets of additionals.

i've been saying all along that A's list has never lost me. i am happy to report it still hasn't. i love the additions. i love the way it moves.

but i will add that i thought the new five on B were good. electrelane and mayfield intrigued me, caught my ear, very nice. makes me wanna hear more. along with ben, harvey and boz.. i quite liked it.

A is a much sturdier list here. Thoughtful but fun. B never gets itself going.
