Yep, largely agree with this. I like the ambition of the O'Jays cut though, a little more than B's enjoyable groove.

And I entirely agree with that. The epic soul prog odyssey of A is winning tonight.

A is convoluted but not bad. B is more goodness reggae. I'm detoxing now by playing King Tubby loudly....

Curiously, the first few moments to A reminded me of the start to either Radiohead's "Pyramid Song" or Gorecki's Symphony no. 3 - before we get to the soul bulk of the track I mean. I'm liking this, it's on the right side of smooth and dramatic, even if the vocals are a tad nondescript as far as this sort of thing goes. A lot of people blame the genre B belongs to but I just think it's not a very good example of it and would have faired pretty similarly even if it had been one of the first tracks to go for it - far as I'm concerned it's only the dub stylings somewhere in the second half that are at all interesting, and even for that there's a few other artists and tracks that would be better representatives of that subgenre. Clear A for me here.
