Allmusic.com gave The Songs of Distant Earth this review:

The Songs of Distant Earth blend together two motifs crafted through Mike Oldfield’s atmospheric music. (Both outer space and inner space under water) are the themes of this album, but Oldfield’s synthesized artistry comes up short during the course of the 17 tracks, mainly because of the intermittent talking and unnecessary vocabulary that quickly becomes irksome and ineffective. … Inspired by Arthur C. Clarke, Oldfield tries to capture the wonder and mystery of the stars and the sea through washes of synthesizer, but his attempt at capturing both themes could have benefited from a multitude of other instruments, as his work usually includes.
