I'm early this week. Strong line-up once again, with again the third pair as the weaker link, though these two are still fine. The second one is pretty much a toss-up.

5. The Pretty Things - S.F. Sorrow vs. 1. Astor Piazzolla - Tango: Zero Hour
3. Fela Kuti - Expensive Shit vs. 2. Jackson C. Frank - Jackson C. Frank
8. tricot - T H E vs. 7. The Feminine Complex - Livin' Love
6. Bubu - Anabelas vs. 4. Woods - City Sun Eater in the River of Light

I've warmed a lot to the tricot and Woods albums this week compared to earlier, just not enough for them to emerge triumphant:

The Pretty Things - S.F. Sorrow 4.8 v. 7.1 Astor Piazzolla - Tango: Zero Hour/Neuvo Tango: Hora Zero
Fela Kuti & Africa 70 - Expensive Shit 7.3 v. 5.5 Jackson C. Frank - Jackson C. Frank
tricot - t h e 7.2 v. 8.9 The Feminine Complex - Livin' Love
Bubu - Anabelas 6.8 v. 5.9 Woods - City Sun Eater in the River of Light
Some things you never get used to...
