Galactic Melt received generally positive reviews from critics, with a score of 71 out of 100 based on 16 reviews on review aggregator website Metacritic.[3] Allmusic journalist Andy Kellman compared it to the works of Ford & Lopatin in that it "can be enjoyed in one-track doses or complete immersion, and it often inspires YouTube users to upload unofficial videos incorporating fuzzy, dreamlike images from early- to mid-‘80s television and film clips."[4]
