Nice Rodriguez pick, among others. The new 5 don't do much for me at all, though.

Agree entirely - infact I'd go so far as to say "I used to love her, but it's all over now". However A has failed to capitalise on my disenchantment proffering The Lords Of The New Church :shock: and The Wedding Present :? - well clearly that's no way to pull so I'm going back home with B again - but with added disappointment.

The new 5 haven't helped either of these much. A particularly has lost it's way.

B was going great guns but seems to have got lost lately. I like the Roxy pick but otherwise it's pretty backward. Nevertheless, before the last 10 or so it had a really nice variety of moods and textures. Velvelettes, Pablo/Tubby, etc.

A needs to be taken out to pasture. Now.

Buck up in the next round!

Finding You by the Go-Betweens is inspired. A personal favourite.

B - some if it is a bit obvious but it's better than A.

B wins by virtue of having some good stuff on there (and by not being A), but it's going to have to liven up a bit, as it's a bit mixed so far.

Two of my lesser favorites left. B, I guess.

The big guns in the new 5 get my vote on this one. The Soft Cell pick is particularly good.

A has a handful of goodies but goths out somewhat. B may lack bats but scores big with Ochs, I Guess I'm Dumb and the raunch of the Groundhogs amongst many others. Hope it goes all the way.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.
