Allmusic.com gave Alpha Centauri a 2 1/2 star review:

As if the sound is breaking through your speakers, Alpha Centauri begins its journey. Crackling and swirling synthesizers seize control of your stereo. Like a call to psychedelic arms, the first track “Sunrise in the Third System” marches on with its organ. … Tangerine Dream’s style of “space music” had not yet been refined and revolutionized as it was a couple of releases later with Phaedra and Rubycon. Regardless, for those interested in a wilder and more reckless ride on the “space music” autobahn, Alpha Centauri should satisfy the need.
