A heartbreakingly beautiful album. Heres some tips on the different versions:

All vinyl and 2CD versions come with "Her Lips were Wet with Venom". A 28 minute wall of dense, grim sound.
The Inoxia CD comes with the bonus track "The Sinking Belle (Black Sheep)" - an instrumental version of "Blue Sheep" using mainly violins.
The Daymare vinyl replaces this with "The Sinking Belle (White Sheep)" - another instrumental with acoustic guitar and some effects. This is the only release you'll find this track on.

The "Black" and "White" versions of Sinking Belle are 5:05 and 4:30 minutes respectively; whereas "Blue" is 7:38. A few people have tried playing the three tracks together to find an almost pleasing effect... although the lack of syncing up does make it a bit of a mess.
I've had a play around, and i can confirm that "Black" and "White" sync up beautifully - giving an acoustic/orchestral instrumental to die for. "The Sinking Belle (Grey Sheep)" anyone?
Trying to introduce "Blue" does not seem to work, as the timing is different (unless of course you slow down the tempo of the Black/White a little - which has worked and sounds pretty good). So my guess is that the Black and White were meant to get mixed (by crazies like me), and the Blue is meant stand on it's own.
Hope this helps someone!
