“If the reference imagery of Matthew's music is, as his fans well-know, that of the sitcom, Alone At St. Hugo is the perfect manifesto, in his rare ability to tell something of life and of himself lightly...By now we can say that we are faced with an artist who, despite his relative anonymity, has left a significant and recognizable mark on the contemporary American culture.”

“I will be shocked if something else will be my album of the year when we reach the end of the year. I just love everything about this...Why isn’t everyone singing and shouting the praises of Alone at St. Hugo from the rooftops? A dazzlingly brilliant album.”
