AllMusic Review by

The Resurrection was short-lived. After the Geto Boys reunited for a final go-round in 1996, the group fell apart, with Bushwick Bill leaving the band. Willie D and Scarface soldiered on, recruiting DMG to fill the diminutive Bill's large shoes. It doesn't quite work. There are flashes of inspiration throughout Da Good da Bad & da Ugly, but musically and lyrically, it neither has the Geto Boys' signature sound nor an interesting variation on it. Instead, it feels (and looks) like a poor attempt to keep pace with No Limit. Since Scarface and Willie D are better MCs than the average No Limit rapper -- so is DMG, for that matter -- the record works better than the average No Limit album, but feels distressingly anonymous. A few cuts are successful, but the record never gels as a whole, leaving it as a low point in the group's catalog.
