Awarding the album three and a half stars from Hallels reviewer Timothy Yap stated "Christmas Vol. 1," this is a four-song set, with the Melbourne Australian worship team tackling three traditional carols and one original. The pride of this set is that Planetshakers have taken the time to give each of these ancient paeans a contemporary dressing, making them palatable to today's synth-driven pop soundscape.[5] Jonathan Andre, specifying in a four star review for 365 Days of Inspiring Media, replies, Overall an enjoyable EP that definitely continues my reinvigorated interest for Planetshakers a bit more; this track list has certainly taken me by surprise, well musically at least, of what the band is capable of. Even though one track was severely lacking, the other three more than made up for the mishap, and Planetshakers have done Australia proud with their latest Christmas anthems and dance melodies, full of inspiring messages and uplifting lyrics about Jesus![6] Phill Feltham, indicating in a four star review by New Release Today, describes, "The Bottom Line: The Planetshakers' first Christmas EP is a holiday sampler of sounds. "Joy to the World" and "Silent Night" in particular engage the listeners with their vocals and music, evoking emotion and holiday cheer."[7]
