The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek stated: "The Windmills of Your Mind is a collection of jazz and pop standards played by a stellar quartet ".
The Guardian 's John Fordham observed: "Motian enlists Bill Frisell on guitar and Thomas Morgan on bass to turn the usual glides and smooches of these songs into a lurching, spontaneously contrapuntal undertow, in which the rhythm lies as much in what's not being played as what is".
All About Jazz correspondent Dan Bilawsky commented, "Motian's prolific output makes it easy to occasionally overlook some of his albums, but this one is likely to gain a lot of attention. The Windmills Of Your Mind is simply sublime". JazzTimes 's Colin Fleming called the album "a set of pop standards with the deep, well-rounded luxuriousness of modern chamber music, with elements of high-romance. This is jazz as seduction music".
