    Diplo’s electro-dancehall project scored a Top 40 hit in 2015 with the buoyant “Lean On.” Those good vibes continue on Peace.

    It’s so ludicrously colourful and loud and just the right side of ridiculous and whatever the mission may be, domination is the likely result.

    The best cuts here happen to be those hewing closer to Major Lazer's wake-and-bake dancehall origins. [No. 121, p.57]

    The more restrained moments, such as hit single Lean On, nicely accentuate the crazed moombahton intensity of tracks such as Blaze up the Fire.

    Peace Is The Mission feels like too much of a splurge to be enjoyable right through. [Jul 2015, p.109]

    This sound is now not only jaded--though still remarkably popular--but its ubiquity serves as a reminder of how sights have lowered since Major Lazer was first conceived.
