This review is from: Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump (Audio CD)
It's no 3 Feet High & Rising or De La Soul is Dead. It's not as good as good as Buhloone Mindstate or Grind Date either, but it's still wittier and bouncier than 99% of the hip-hop released in the last ten years - and it's De La Soul. It's also a great deal better than it's follow-up Bionix (which goes down as one of the biggest disappointments ever in my hip hop world).
De La Soul are always full of ideas and never seem to rest on their laurels. For some they'll never come close to 3 Feet High & Rising but that doesn't mean everything they've released since should be ignored. Mosaic Thump is a great hip hop album and a good De La Soul one. It's also got a roll call of mindblowing proportions - Redman, Busta Rhymes, Chaka Khan, Ad Rock and Xzibit all make appearances.
Go get it...
