What is the euphemism I am searching for? "Two very personal lists"?

I am going A but only because that Eyeless in Gaza thing literally bored my tits off.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

B

Tropical Hotdog Night, White Cell, Desire, Knives Replace Air, La Question, and Teinshou are godly. A doesn’t have a single thing of that quality while B gives us several. The regular version of Inertia Creeps would’ve been one of them but the State of Bengal mix is rubbish.

I do quite like the DAF, Culture, and Misfits tunes from A but the keyword is ‘quite’.

Also must check out a bit more from The Strawbs.

B was too much like hard work. Not totally comvinced by A but can't argue with Big Joe and Johnny Burnette, although there are a ton of better Jackie DeShannon songs.

Hmmm. Neither of these really floats my boat. I like the Francoise Hardy in B, but the rest of it is a bit too much like hard work.

A. Not so much becasue I like it, but because I don't really like B.

A only- and it really is only- for the Massive Attack.

Blimey! I just had to double check that B wasn't half mine. Awesome. But suicidal.

Great Misfits and DAF picks in list A though.

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.

B without a question. You have the Captain, Clock DVA, Tuxedomoon and one of the best songs in music, "La Question." Not to mention, the list ends with Geinoh Yamashirogumi piece. Winning, bigly!
