I love my compilation.  Love both, but went with Le Poison Qui Rend Fou.

Triskaidekophobie by the narrowest of margins. Promenade au Fond d'un Canal is my favourite track off these two classic albums (and they go together to make a stunningly good single CD).

Triskaidekaphobie narrowly - Promenade and Quatre-Vingt Douze are just too brilliant.

I prefer Triskaidekaphobie myself, mostly because of Promenade which is probably Present's best and most representative track. I also like it's more horror movie attitude compared to Le Poison.. though it's a VERY close race overall!

Thirded... don't see the need to choose though, I'm so used to listening to them as one album... i don't even think i've ever listened to them separatelyLOL

The fact that both of these are on 1 CD, that can be purchased inexpensively, makes getting this the biggest no-brainer ever.
