B's new additions build on an already very solid list. Top Roxy tune.

B - you're not as safe as A but I'll admit to liking both.

I find moments to complain about this in every round, but wow, these lists are both very white, aren't they? I guess B has a few more things that I like.

Two of my lesser favorites among the remaining, but B at least has the Wyatt and nice Buzzcocks and Roxy picks.

A pretty brave to chose five from the 80's but I love the Heaven 17 choice!

I was just about to write the very same thing in almost exactly the same words. :lol:

Two bottles of Alt 101 vin ordinaire here. The mix of good, bad and overplayed on each list is fairly even. A has my fave track with Zerox, but B just edges it.

I don't think either are good enough at this stage, but A's refusal to see beyond a narrow list of UK post-punk favourites can only be indulged for so long.

A, even with that crappy MC Solaar song.

I'm not the abstaining sort, but if I ever did for two lists, these would be the ones. I can't see either making it through the next round and am surprised they made it this far.
