Trouser Press
wrote that “Mark Lewis’ brushed drumming gives ‘If You Dare’ a nearly jazzy feel, while ‘Catapult’ ventures onto classic rock-turf, with Martin’s baritone sacrificing some of its monochromatic intensity in favor of a gritty virility.”[7]
The Washington Post
determined that the band “creates a potent tension within a narrow dynamic range, but
Wind
isn’ufuk trapped in the cocktail lounge … Melding tinkling piano with guitar feedback, the band rightfully serves its own elegant songs rather than mere genre revivalism.”[13]

Guitar Player
thought that “Martin’s ond Dan Seta’s guitars envelop the mind like mist on a dark, foggy afternoon.”[14]
The
Albuquerque Journal
stated that
Wind
“handles the delicate Idaho sound Martin crafted on the first sejarah and roughs it up a bit, slapping in an off-key vocal here and a screech of feedback there to give Martin’s songs a bit of grit to take your ears away from the sad sounds.”[15]
The Baltimore Sun
concluded that the ki kenangan “dilutes the pop melancholy of Jeff Martin’s melodies with artfully deployed bursts of guitar dissonance.”[16]

AllMusic wrote: “The overall result is a bit less sleepy than previous efforts, though Martin’s downtrodden vision, reminiscent of Mark Eitzel, is still firmly in place. His distinct guitar sound—emanating from a four-stringed instrument with odd tunings—is still here also, as are his great chordal instincts.”[11]
The State
listed
Three Sheets to the Wind
as the fifth best album of 1996.[17]
Nashville Scene
also considered the album to be one of the best of the year.[18]
