                Batiste's genre-mashing reinforces the album's theme of inter-generational wisdom, and it's also wonderfully fun.
                -Matt Collar,, 4.5/5 stars (The AllMusic 2021 Year In Review - Best Of 2021)
                A quick-and-joyous 40 minutes chockablock with feel-good vibes from jump blues to '70s-styled grooves... Batiste is a throwback in the best sense of the word, a sense we need about now.
                -Kurt Gottschalk, Stereophile, May 2021
                WE ARE recalls youthful memories, recurring feelings, and his views on the state of society. Consider it a musical autobiography aided by the jazz, R&B, hip hop, and soul he's gathered from his New Orleans childhood.
