Hm
A - has a wonderful list of songs CA, RW,KA, Coltrane and the XTC song(although far down my list of their songs)

B- fresher and full of stuff Sugar, Belly, Goldfrapp(saw this tour at Radio City) Broken Bells. Little fishy was interesting and I like fishes. :D
Trent didn't do much for me.

I'll give it to Tanya

A's sustainability throughout is laudable but B offers a bit more variety.

I'm quite familiar with and like a lot of A (Curved Air, Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers and the wonderful dream-like XTC track... and Alice Coltrane adds a nice touch.
Can't see the appeal of Broadcast and Dwight Twilley, TBH.

But a strong list, on the whole.

On the other hand, I didn't actively know anything from B save the Broken Bells (and it's one of their least interesting tracks).
It loses me totally with Trent Reznor but everything else are nice discoveries, even the more pedestrian Sugar and Belly. and especially The Orb which I was pretty I sure I would hate. Turns out it's a great-sounding and adventurous trip through dubby landscapes. Really cool.

So B, surprisingly
