"remarkable in its honesty, fragility, and even wit"
"Evidently, I wasn't the only one enamored of Chris. Through my incessant phone calls to KUGS to demand they play one or the other of the two songs they had in their rotation, I found out that his songs were among the most requested. It seemed his music, sweet, smart and hooky as hell, managed to achieve the near-impossible: it was able to break through the hipper-than-thou musical apathy that afflicts most listeners of college radio."
