For me, it's Nom de Guerre Cabal. I liken it to the special edition of The Empire Strikes Back. The majority of the changes are subtle and when they're at their most drastic, they really add to a lot.

zapopan imo. followed by NDGC and El Bien. NDGC is good to have with Solo imo, the worse tracks on Nom are great on Solo. And El Bien reimagines songs like Que Dice Pessoa? in a way that is much more enjoyable.

xenophanes is just boring all around

Definitely el bien. That's just like a new album. After that ensayo. Zapopan is great but i hate the cut ups at the beginning. Nom and solo are just not my thing, bad or good quality i don't care

Don't really like Zapopan much at all, Nom de Guerre is sweet but mostly for the new tracks.

 

El Bien is great but The Vanished is absolutely brilliant.

Nom, takes an obscurity and turns it into a tour de force.

Ensayo, stunning reimagining of earlier work that complements it masterfully.

El bien, adds interesting layers but is slightly unpurposed.

Zapopan, honestly I prefer Unicorn Skeleton Mask.

 

I see Zapopan is top currently, but of these four albums it's the one with the least work put into the second version. It's just a cleaned up mix.

there are a few things. first, worst, and most petty, the count in is gone from salt lines. quemanos lo and discursos also have synth and guitar added to them, common condescend has new synths too. i believe that's it. like i said, just enough added apart from the better mix and they're all good decisions

i can deal with a song on every album, but full albums feels like such a waste when there's a lot of new material in his vault - again unless he's trying to skirt past cathy in which case get that money o. like i'd love to hear better to hang a dead husband through a new lens, it's a weird little number and like solo extrano i feel like it never fully matured. same with some of woman gives birth, which apparently we're getting eventually. i just hope that adrian doesn't get deleted like juan and thomas did...

NDGC loses major points for me by having a version of Horror that feels incredibly out of place compared to the rest of the album.

I do think it's strange, and I never like the Solo version, but somehow I get way into it when ever Riot Squid comes on, get's me while all worked up in a good way! Live is definitely superior

 

I think Nom De Guerre Cabal is definitely the most improved, El Bien is good but I only revisit the new tracks and the new version of Incesto o Pasion. As far as Ensayo I'm still processing that one...

 

So I think Nom De Guerre wins but just barely over Zapopan
