"[Christopher the Conquered has] got a buzz going with a sound that is reminiscent of a young Elton John." - Wendy Geller, Senior Editor, Yahoo! Music
"His winning charm is subtle and earnestness; if he has to sing a downbeat ballad rife with wary words straight from the heart, he’s going to do it. But if his piano solos are unconventional and his ponderous lyrics seem coy, it’s often downplayed into the decorous blend of instrumentation." Paste Magazine
"Every song has a melancholy punch; every song is just plain catchy." - Vice.com
“One of Iowa’s most promising exports.” - Daytrotter.com
"There is something deeply off about everything that’s happening here and I’m 100% sold." - Brightest Young Things
