Allmusic.com gave Uncle Meat a 4 1/2 star review:
Just three years into their recording career, the Mothers of Invention released their second double album, Uncle Meat, which began life as the largely instrumental soundtrack to an unfinished film. It’s essentially a transitional work, but it’s a fascinating one, showcasing Frank Zappa’s ever-increasing compositional dexterity and the Mothers’ emerging instrumental prowess. It was potentially easy to overlook Zappa’s melodic gifts on albums past, but on Uncle Meat, he thrusts them firmly into the spotlight; what few lyrics there are, Zappa says in the liner notes, are in-jokes relevant only to the band. …It’s exciting to hear one of the most creatively fertile minds in rock pushing restlessly into new territory, even if he isn’t always quite sure where he’s going. …Though some might miss the gleeful satire of Zappa’s previous work with the Mothers, Uncle Meat’s continued abundance of musical ideas places it among his most intriguing works.
