Was something edited out from the 2020 version of "Wild Women with steak knives"? The running time seems to be over one minute shorter. What has been cut off?

My copy was unscented, but I'm guessing brimstone and absinthe?

Where Yoko Ono's characteristic voice shrieks fail, Diamanda's win to the extreme - be it inner demons, institutional repression or the all-around hypocrisy. The only irony is, "The Litanies of Satan" is quite musical. Intense, frightening and demanding, yes - but just as liberating. Impressive how far the singer can push her voice, testing the chords, in the process challenging the listener to stare at one's own fears. The album where sound truly exceeds the medium, filling the room with sheer, fascinating horror.

Wild Women With Steak Knives is the shorter track. This can be shown through listening, as the words that are intelligible reference this.

Tracks mastered in wrong order. i.e. track one should be side one (Litanies Of Satan) but it's actually side two (Wild Women). And vice versa.

The first time I heard this was in HMV Manchester in 1982 (remember when HMV sold good records? A loooong time ago).
I was going through the racks and became aware of this amazing noise.... very freaky to hear it loud in a shop.
I didn't get it straight away though. A bit later I saw it 2nd hand and jumped on it.
Great record, probably her best.

Definitely NOT a record for everyone. In fact, I would imagine most folks would turn this off after about 8 seconds into it. I also believe that this is her best album. Only the adventurous need apply. Excellent recording in my opinion. 9/10
