Is A expecting us to listen to the whole of Journey in Satchidananda, or just the title track? Either way, I'm happy. Tom Verlaine is really dull, and that Easybeats track is pretty much a shitfest, but the other three new tracks are proper improvements to that list.

B, Luara Nyro was dull, The Lovin' Spoonful were just as crap as The Easybeats, and Ice Cube sounded cheesy and dated. But the other two tracks were ace.

A should be thinking about booking the open top bus.
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.

OK, A is obviously DELIBERATELY COURTING MY VOTE with their 5 newest picks.

It's damn close, but Sly, Alice, Tom, and Nina tilt the balance. Despite B's "Nobody," which is also one of my favorite songs ever by anybody.

I think A has done remarkably well to get this far. It's a good list for sure but painfully classicist. After scraping through against an excellent challenger (ahem) in the last round, B has regained much of it's swing here. I don't share the enthusiasm for Broadcast I often read here (they're simply ok) but these are sure footed additions to an already classy list. Quite handily...

Tighter than a gnat's hair, but B gets it for being just a bit more adventurous.

I like A, but it's B here. That last 5 from A almost stole it, but B had just enough credits banked to keep its nose in front.

I like a fair bit of B, bt parts (memphis Tennessee) don't show the imagination I'm looking for. Great Chic and Everly picks but ultimately I'm feeling A more. The better Laura Nyro pick and NO Ice Cube
