AllMusic Review by

Like the other Simply Christmas volumes, Joy to the World offers a plethora of holiday favorites spread across two discs for a total of 24 songs. Not quite as many well-known songs on this volume as the others. There are a few essentials -- "Silent Night," "Joy to the World," "Deck the Halls" -- but for the most part, this album collects more obscure holiday songs like "Ding Dong Merrily on High," "As With Gladness Men of Old," and "O Thou Joyful, O Thou Wonderful." These less expected selections make this particular volume unique and of interest to anyone looking to go a little deeper than the traditional annual favorites.
