Professional ratings
Review scores
Allmusic3/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Dave Lynch awarded the album 3 stars stating "The Infinite is a strong debut release from Douglas' New Quintet. Those with tastes tending toward post-bop and pre-fusion jazz should find much to like here, with the album perhaps serving as an entry point to the trumpeter's more chance-taking endeavors".[2] On All About Jazz C. Andrew Hovan said "The Infinite is the record I've been waiting for Dave to make for some time now. It's not too left of center, has a drummer on board, and allows Douglas' own eclectic sense of musical adventure to run wild".[3]
