The Allmusic review awarded the album 4 stars out of 5, stating "While the hallucinatory nature of High Risk certainly brings to mind trumpeter Miles Davis' '70s and '80s electric period, Douglas smartly bucks direct comparisons by largely eschewing heavy effects on his own horn. He blends well into the band's soundscape, but continuously finds key moments for his trumpet's warm timbre to stand out". Pitchfork Media said "High Risk is not so much an album of jazz augmented by electronic instrumentation, but an album performed by players that are very conscious of and interested in electronic music. It's not just Saginaw dithering with a laptop, but also Guiliana mimicking delay trails on his kit or emulating the oddball swing of chopped and spliced rhythms. Over top, Douglas' playing is generally very mellow—reinforcing the ambient and meditative aspects of the music." PopMatters' John Garratt stated "High Risk is a most thorough mixture of jazz and electronic music because it’s difficult to definitively define it as either. ...Where one influence ends and another one begins is a mystery, and that’s what will guarantee High Risk's status as a wholly unique album. With any justice, it will also serve as a template for future electro-jazz".
