Critical reception

Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings was met with mostly mixed reviews. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from critics, the album received an average score of 56, which indicates "mixed or average reviews", based on 18 reviews. AllMusic senior critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine panned the album, stating: "While that's interesting for a while, at a certain point -- and it arrives rather quickly -- the fascination curdles and it's hard not to feel unclean, as if you're snooping through your beloved brother's desk." Alexis Petridis from The Guardian criticized the release, saying "In 21 years, the posthumous Nirvana industry has gone from releasing the band’s astonishing MTV Unplugged in New York performance to literally putting out recordings of Kurt Cobain making farting noises." Further, Jayson Green of Pitchfork pointed out that "The Home Recordings marks the point where that exploitation enters the absurd."

Nevertheless, Kyle Anderson of Entertainment Weekly praised the album, considering it as "a cultural artifact that provides an inside look at the creative process of an enigmatic genius." Tiny Mix Tapes critic Joe Hemmerling wrote: "There is pleasure to be found here, particularly in Cobain’s left-field excursions into Burroughs-ian collage, but these pleasures will hold scant value to anyone not already convinced of the author’s peculiar genius."
