Archers Of Loaf - Icky Mettle LP - Blue Vinyl Reissue
The other day I tried to explain to someone that I like this record more than a lot of my immediate family members. One of my absolute favorites of all time. I have the original pressing on Alias, but hey, the reissue is on blue vinyl, and it really doesn't take much convincing for me to buy another Archers of Loaf record. The artwork looks great (especially the gold foil lettering of the band's name), but I have 2 qualms. 1. The blue vinyl is kind of cheap and thin feeling and 2. The CD version has an entire 2nd disc of B-Sides. For the vinyl, the B-Sides are a digital download only. While I have all of those songs on Vinyl already from the Speed of Cattle 2xLP., it still seems like bullshit to not include those. Especially when I just found out there will be a UK version of this reissue that will have the 2nd disc on vinyl.
