AllMusic Review by

No Good's Game Day, PBB is one of the many Dirty South albums to be released around the turn of the century. The key to this genre of music is the fluid style of rapping and lack of empty space in the tracks, something that No Good does a very good job of. However, that's about where the compliments end, as the album is one of the most generic examples of the genre to come along in quite a while. By repeating the exact same phrases countless times, they spend a good portion of the album avoiding any new verses. They continually chant the same stuff but change just one word each time, giving the illusion of new lyrics when they're just filling time. And when they do just throw out normal verses, they add horribly childish lyrics (example: "I'll be sweet 'til you're sleepy/Let y'all girls suck on my pee pee") that take the wind out of their better songs. They have some nifty production ideas, and many of the choruses are quite memorable, but that is a credit to their primal simplicity more than their ability to write interesting songs. With silly skits, bad lyrics, and a low-brow approach, No Good lives up to their name on this poorly executed album.
