So, who thinks this new batch slays the first one ?

 

I know people are pretty vocal about how the first is their favourite but I don't think I've read anyone saying they love this new set of releases (so far) more.

If we're going to compare the standouts for both batches, for me at least, it's...

 

Sworn Virgins

Umbrella Mistress

Zapopan

Nom De Guerre Cabal

 

vs

 

Roman Lips

Zen Thrills

Chocolate Tumor Hormone Parade

Gorilla Preacher Cartel

Killing Tingled Lifting Retreats

 

I guess that makes the second batch better by one album? But the second batch doesn't have Sworn Virgins so...

I prefer the second batch. the first batch was hit or miss for me, second has been much more consistent imo. corazones, infinity, Snil, Zapopan are all bottom of the series for me.

the jarring nature of the series ending or pausing has in a weird way launched my Omar fatigue into the abyss and now I've really only listened to this album all the way through once and then only skimmed after. The single is great no doubt but I just feel like there's no rush now and there'll be plenty of time. This one seems cool but maybe lacks as many melodic ideas or things that stuck out in my head after the first listen. Probably just a little denser and needs more time and listens than some of the others.
