"'Soundtracks’ sees the composer pushing out every ounce of talent in one form or another to build up an interesting, though incredibly short album experience" (The CD Critic, UK, rated 4 out of 5 stars)

"Frammenti, immagini estemporanee catturate dal picking sensibile dell’artista siciliano e accostate a delicati field recordings, rilucenti ritmiche acustiche e ambientazioni ovattate, che rendono compiutamente l’idea del viaggio alla quale molti di esse si riferiscono. Tra le tante, la frizzante brezza di “Fjord pt. 1”, la cadenzata grazia ritmica di “Ballet”, le calde iterazioni di “Madrid (Santa Ana)” e la nostalgia in movimento di “Viaducto pt.2” incarnano in pochi secondi cartoline compiute, pennellate da note stillate languide e contemplative, ma che si inarcano in filigrane melodiche e danze rituali in miniatura" (Music Won't Save You, Italy)

"This latest release from Claudio Cataldi includes painstakingly handmade artwork comprising a hand stamped sleeve made from parchment, sewn together by hand [...] The music is primarily acoustic and transcends genre; there are hints of the more subdued, melancholic variety of indiepop, psych-folk, modern classical, dreampop, alt-country - but on the whole, genre classifications are meaningless in the context of this album. The music is evocative, bringing up imagery in the mind of the sort of films the pieces could be from." (Bliss Aquamarine, UK)

"Soundtracks è una raccolta di tredici rapidissimi sguardi fuori dal finestrino del treno, idilliaci paesaggi che in un attimo sono svaniti ma che Claudio Cataldi inquadra con magnifica precisione in pochi minuti, a volte in pochi secondi... (In Madrid gli servono solo 35 secondi per farti sognare). L'ascolto ripetuto provoca godurioso rilassamento." (The Breakfast Jumpers, Italy)
