"Christopher the Conquered is the real deal. This is a crazy and incredible record." - Ryan Adams

"[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

What’s the name of the town where the train stopped last night?
What do they call it do they call it Denver
Or maybe it was Salt Lake or Omaha
I ain’t never seen a town like the one I saw

This town’s got a house and a glass for something sweeter
In each room pianos stood tall and men sat upon them
And all those men cried out you gotta open all the doors we wanna let all the people hear
Pretty soon you’ll join in on Hark the Herald Angels Sing!

What’s the name of the town where the train stopped last night?
What do they call it do they call it Chicago
Or maybe it was Madison or St. Paul
I ain’t never seen a town like the one I saw

In this place there’s a road you know it’s going right down the middle
And on one side there’s this castle and on the other a wood
And all the ladies and the children are working so hard scrubbing down those walls
While the leaves they grow and change colors, too and eventually fall

What’s the name of the town where the train stopped last night?
What do they call it do they call it New Orleans
Or maybe it was Little Rock or Columbia
I ain’t never seen a town like the one I saw

So I woke up this morning and I called my friend I said hey I don’t think I can meet today
She said that’s alright it’s cool I understand what you smell something coming in on the wind or something
I said I had this most exotic stop on the Z Line last night
Everyone I knew and you were there, too and she said Yeah you were looking real good
