'GotG' Battle: 'Awesome Mix Vol. 1' vs. 'Awesome Mix Vol. 2'

One of the biggest surprises around the release of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy (besides it totally owning the box office) is the success of its classic rock-heavy soundtrack affectionately called Awesome Mix Vol. 1.

Just how big of a deal was the soundtrack?  It hit number one on the Billboard 200 album chart in August 2014, which marked the first time a soundtrack topped the chart since 2009.

But will Awesome Mix Vol. 2 have the same success?  Looking at the soundtrack's track listing, there's a good chance.

The tracklist for Awesome Mix Vol. 2 was just released, and it's pretty stacked featuring the likes of ELO, Fleetwood Mac and George Harrison.  Check out both tracklistings below and compare.  Which is the stronger of the two?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
