CRITIC REVIEWS

Entertainment Weekly
Need to get a summer party turnt? This’ll do it.
80
Billboard

Peace Is the Mission soars on the strength of sticky melodies sung by a unique combo of pop divas and West Indian vocalists.

80
DIY
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.
80
AllMusic
Consider it the slow and softer Major Lazer album that's built for headphone listening, but most of all, consider it.
74
Pitchfork
Their maturation is palpable across the album's nine tracks. In the process, they've made a great pop record through uniting some of the globe's most exciting and celebrated pop artists.
70
Clash
There's nothing completely new here, but fans are sure to be satisfied, at the very least, until the collective's next album arrives.
70
Rolling Stone
It's hard to think of anyone else who could bring so much together inside one gigantic DJ tent and make it all flow so well.
70
PopMatters
If peace can be achieved by dancing, this is the album to spin.
70
FasterLouder

Although patchy, Peace still has enough worth salvaging to make it a worthwhile investment for your dancing shoes.

60
The Skinny

PITM will either press your buttons, like the smartly curated disco nonsense that it is, or it’ll mash your keyboard like an uninvited cat, a distractible pop-culture vehicle with too much going on.

60
NME
This is a record on which most Lazer acolytes will find something to love. But finding someone who’ll love everything on an album as unsettled as ‘Peace Is The Mission’ could be an even bigger undertaking than locating peace itself.

Exclaim!

Peace Is The Mission is equal parts tepid and garrulous, making it hard to get an overall read on this project. Probably best to not overthink it — let it unfurl like the cartoon act it is, and just replay the tracks that make you move.

60
Under The Radar

The whole thing is a little cheap, but clever, making it so much fun to be on the receiving end.

50
Spin
Diplo and Co. threw everything at the wall and turned around, pretending it stuck when all that’s really left is the splatter from undercooked leftovers.
43
Pretty Much Amazing
The fun here is manufactured beyond belief, sometimes for better, but more often for worse.
40
The Guardian
The recipe is now essentially the same as any EDM album, the genre with which Diplo is closely associated, with guest stars on top and the odd dubby arpeggio underneath.

This album is a short, sweet, blast of energy. "Peace Is the Mission" is just noisy grooves. It's kind of repetitive in formula, but in the moment, it's hard to not get caught up in the big drops whenever they come.
