De La Soul, Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump (Tommy Boy): This long-awaited album solidifies the return of De La Soul. Plenty of guests — Black Thought, Chaka Khan, Beastie Boy Mike D, Pharaohe Monch, Busta Rhymes, Redman — keep things lively, but the bottom line is all about the badder-than-ever De La Soul trio. The grooves are righteous and the vibe is right. Check out soulful "All Good?" and "U Can Do (Life)." — Michael Goldberg
