Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic rated the album four stars out of five, writing that "it's hard not to succumb to Rascal Flatts' smooth touch."[5] At Country Weekly, Bob Paxman graded the album a B+, stating that "Rewind is a great-sounding album that brings Flatts back to country's forefront."[6] At USA Today, Brian Mansfield rated the album two-and-a-half stars out of four, remarking how "The trio retools its style with mixed results", yet its "High-flown ballads remain a strength, and Joe Don Rooney fans will thrill to his guitar work": however, "Elsewhere, the group just sounds as if like it's trying to keep up with the times."[7]
