Awarding the album three stars at CCM Magazine, Matt Conner states, the album "is a pulsing, joyful set steeped in dance-hall style and substance. Therein lies the draw and drawbacks for This Is Our Time."[4] Steve Reed, giving the album four stars from Worship Leader, writes, "Everything is then coupled together with their signature pronounced gang vocals to back up various talented leaders. Themes are centrally focused on freedom, victory, miracles, and a passion for God's presence."[10] Rating the album three stars for Jesus Freak Hideout, Alex Caldwell says, "This Is Our Time does capture the energy and excitement of what must have been a very exciting evening of worship at the Planetshaker's gathering."[6]

Caitlin Lassiter, indicating in a four star review by New Release Today, describes, "Lyrically, the album is a strong project from start to finish. Anthemic songs, powerful declarations of faith and congregation-friendly worship are just a few things the band does well, and they all shine through in a great way on this album."[9] Assigning a six out of ten rating to the album at Cross Rhythms, Tony Cummings reports, "It starts off rather surprisingly considering their rather stereotypical stadium rock approach of old with a distinctly EDM flavour and the first three cuts including the anthemic title track have plenty of keyboard riffs and loud kick though the live atmosphere and rather bland vocals, featuring several female voices singing in unison, mean you won't be hearing these in clubland any time soon."[5]

Signaling in a four star review from Louder Than the Music, Jono Davies responds, "'This Is Our Time' is an album about raising up people who are ready to fall in love with God and do His work in the world. If you want to be inspired and uplifted then this is the album for you."[8] Joshua Andre, specifying in a three and a half star review for 365 Days of Inspiring Media, replies, "Overall an enjoyable album that has overall reinvigorated my interest for Planetshakers a bit more; this album achieved what it set out to do".[3] Bestowing a seven out of ten rating upon the album at Jesus Wired, Maddy Agers recognizes, "Anyone with a love for worship music will enjoy this, but I will say that it is for those with a love for softer worship, and those who enjoy both male and female vocals throughout."[7]
