AllMusic Review by

Super Roots, Vol. 3 is about as different from Vol. 1 as you can get, made up of a single 33-and-a-half-minute cut, "Hard Trance Away (Karaoke of the Cosmos)." This one solid blast-ass cut consists of a single hardcore riff for nearly the first ten minutes and then the same riff changes key -- goes up a step -- at the ten-minute mark, and finally changes cadence at the 11-minute mark. It moves in various ways (slowly, usually designated by a different kind of drum fill) before fading to silence before the cut officially ends. This is the Boredoms at their most monotonous, but then again, the riff progression has teeth and great drums, and its subtle change is hypnotic in a brutal but no less hedonistic manner.
