Two Versions of Spector. Which is Better?

Here's a more muted version that I did just this afternoon...which is better? The original colorful evrsion or this more deathly one?...
Here's a portrait I just did of Phil Spector. I wanted to do a painting with a dark vibe, and he seemed the perfect choice.

Early next year Phil Spector will be on trial for murder a second time after his first trial ended in a mistrial. He's accused of killing lounge hostess Lana Clarkson in his mansion on Feb. 3, 2003.

According to various witnesses at the first trial, he's a very strange guy, with a history of threatening recalcitrant lady friends at gun point.

Edit: This afternoon I started playing around with the palette of the original painting, and came up with this more muted version. Which do you think is better?
Here's the original colorful one....
