Album Notes
"Rick Altizer is a musical genius. Blue Plate Special is an outstanding album that demands attention."
Mike Rimmer, Premier Magazine

CMJ New Music Report
David Avery
"Blue Plate Special" (KMG)
Altizer's nimble pop songs and Petty-esque voice speak to the daily struggle against a constant corporate onslaught of images and messages. The multi- talented Altizer not only writes and sings all songs, but plays nearly all instrumental tracks, with the notable exception of select guitar tracks by Adrian Belew, who also co-produced the album.
Recommended Tracks: "Make A Monkey," "Tape Gun Baby," "Jan The Best"

"Wow! This is one wildly exciting little slab of plastic. This deserves to be a pop smash outta this town."

Robert Oermann, Music Row Magazine, Nashville

"One of the best records you'll hear all year"
Christian Retailing

"One of the most insightful and entertaining albums to make it onto a Christian label this year. Blue Plate Special sounds like nothing else in Christian music."
Anthony DeBarros, CCM Magazine

"The best pop album I've heard in the last few years"
Chris Lutes, Editor, Campus Life Magazine

"Wow. I didn't know they still made records this good."
Chris Well, Editor, 7ball

"There just aren't that many daring records of this ilk on Christian labels to warrant honest comparison"
Brian Q. Newcomb, CCM Magazine
