I actually had B in my shortlist but opted against it because I felt it was a tad too obvious a choice. But it's a bloody great track all the same. A was terrible. B it is.

a - Shane always sounded fucked to me, and the song is all right, but the Popes aren't the Pogues. 4.5 / 10
b - I'm kind of ambivalent about the Cocteau Twins. As DF says, every time you catch a single track, it tends to be a pleasant ish experience, and I have paid money for some of their EPs, but I never really got a sense of individuality about any of the songs - not helped by the wordless vocals – and over an album length they all sort of collapse together into a puddle of twee, with acoustic strumming on top. Not B's fault, but there's been a lot of this sort of thing in the cup, and I'm a bit burnt out by its indistinguishability. erm 4 /5

Yeah, Shane is over the line, but the Cocteaus, Massive Attack, Portishead, Air, etc. are the face of the fucking thing.

It's not. For Shane "Utter fucking cack" is the very minimum required.

And quite rightly so..you'll get beautifully arranged inventive music with them. Who wouldn't prefer that to some shambolic and tired pub rock?
