The only good album from Major Lazer, it's a fun one, with some pop sensibilities in it, but still true to its roots in dancehall music. It's too bad Diplo went off the wayside and pursued dull house music since.

Crazy fun from Major Lazer on their debut GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE... LAZERS DO. Diplo and Switch have taken dancehall and twisted it into this mutant entity. So while "Hold the Line" has the dancehall thump-thump, it's the rhythm guitar, vocal contortions of Santigold and Mr. Lex, and telephone noises which give it form. Similarly, "When You Hear the Bassline" revels in its cut-and-paste aesthetic, the vocals by Ms. Thing sped and slowed into her own band. But within the dancehall style, Major Lazer stretch their legs: the pure reggae of "Can't Stop Now," the rock attitude of "Lazer Theme," the boastful sex come-ons of "What U Like," or the ridiculous humor of "Mary Jane" (the last one a good thing, actually). The snare-infused "Pon de Floor" has a bit of electro to keep it popping. But for me, the stand-out surprise on the album is "Keep It Goin' Louder," a club-ready track that's juicy in all the right places. This lazer will kill you several times over!
