"Christopher the Conquered is the real deal." - Ryan Adams
"Impressive" - Consequence of Sound
"It's a little like Freddie Mercury singing selections from David Bowie's Young Americans and the Rocky Horror soundtrack. And if that doesn't appeal to you, then I need some time to think about us because because I'm not sure I know who you are anymore." - 123 O'Clock 4 O'Clock Rock
