The Allmusic review by Jason Ankeny awarded the album 2½ stars stating "The title notwithstanding, Blues for We largely abandons all pretense of conventional blues idioms to couch Brown in a series of soul-jazz contexts that draw heavily on mainstream R&B formulas; the problem is the material, which spans from avant-garde jazz to bubblegum pop and stretches even a player of Brown's considerable range far past the point of no return. Sometimes a record can be too ambitious for its own good, and the reach of Blues for We definitely exceeds its grasp -- given the choice to pursue any number of directions, Brown sets off in all of them, and loses himself in the process".
