"Accompanying [Task Attack's] great gameplay is a stellar retro soundtrack. Alex Cap’s soundtrack brings the game to life with modern hardware, while keeping that grungy chunk of the limited sounds arcade cabinets and old game consoles would produce. Complexity does exist within the tracks, but feels grounded to the retro aesthetic."

Jordan Thompson, TouchArcade writer

"[Task Attack's] original score should make you pine for the days of shoulder pads and really bad hair."

Brent Dirks, AppAdvice writer

"Cap's performance of Liszt's 'Transcendental Etude No. 8 in C Minor' began with a barrage of chords and thrumming low notes. The pianist continued through a series of epic and hyperactive sections and drove the chords down in an emphatic finish. The piece was unruly, but the performance was disciplined."

Matt Huston, TCNJ Signal writer

"Substantial program, skillfully delivered! I also enjoyed your program notes -- you provided a charming, relaxed description of the works that put your audience at ease. You conveyed a clear command of the history behind the works, and a thorough understanding of the musical periods and styles."

Dr. Teresa Marrin Nakra, professor of music technology

"You have made my performances better by accompanying me. You are the best accompanist ever, so I thank you for accompanying me!!"
