Prefix Magazine argues that Icky Mettle is the Perfect '90s Rock Record in this piece written by Matthew Fiander:
This is about representing a time and place, capturing just what made this sound and this period in a particular subset of rock music so damn compelling. Icky Mettle does all that not by sounding like every other record from the time, but by establishing its own unique, blaring fuzz that hits not just with volume, but with a rare force.
Re-mastered by Bob Weston and featuring new liner notes by Robert Christgau, Icky Mettle will come with bonus material including the entire Archers of Loaf vs. The Greatest of All Time EP as well as singles and b-sides from the Icky Mettle era. It will be available in stores beginning August 2 on CD, limited-edition blue vinyl and digital download. Reissues of Vee Vee, All the Nation’s Airports and White Trash Heroes will follow next year.
