I think A has well and truly run it’s race. Whereas, B is still in the game. Comfortably

A is very Mojo and MOR, and is the least interesting list left in the cup.

B has at least acknowledged a year beginning with a 2, has "Amateur Hour", and chose a decent bit of obvious classic hip-hop.
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.

Hmmm...close. Both inconsistent with some peaks. But A's new ones - at least two of the three - are right up my alley. B's looks good on paper, but the Lord Cobra's a bit dull and that's a very ordinary track by Saints standards. The EB&R is great, mind.

Both boring.

A I guess, largely for the Chills.

That's a weak Saints pick and that Lord Cobra song can piss off. A's new 3 are stronger but overall it's a bit fushty.

Plus Amateur Hour which is, of course, absolutely wonderful

B makes more direct hits with me - though also a few more direct misses. I’ll still vote for it though, because A (outside of Little Richard and Mose Allison) just kind of washes by me with a lot of “BCB tasteful” selections that don’t connect one way or the other.
The opinions of this poster are subjective. That’s how opinions work.

I'm not wowed by A's latest three, I find B more fun with that great Lord Cobra pick an Eric B and Rakim are good too. Lots on A to enjoy but it's becoming a little too narrowly 'serious singer-songwriter' for me.
