Allmusic.com gave Atom Heart Mother a 3 star review:
Appearing after the sprawling, unfocused double-album set Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother may boast more focus, even a concept, yet that doesn’t mean it’s more accessible. If anything, this is the most impenetrable album Pink Floyd released while on Harvest, which also makes it one of the most interesting of the era. Still, it may be an acquired taste even for fans, especially since it kicks off with a side-long, 23-minute extended orchestral piece that may not seem to head anywhere, but is often intriguing, more in what it suggests than what it achieves.
In Japan, the first pressing of Atom Heart Mother was pressed on red “Everclean” vinyl and while it’s the most common Pink Floyd title to find on red wax, it’s still quite difficult to find one in playable condition and even harder to find with the original obi. Most of the copies of Atom Heart Mother we’ve seen from Japan over the years were in poor condition.
