AllMusic Review by

The fifth volume in the Boredoms' Super Roots series is the longest and easily the most extreme. Composed of a single, 64-minute track, it's the stuff pure noise fans will bleat over. Guitars, basses, drums, sonic rumblings from another world and distortion up the wazoo are what designate and distinguish "02 GO!!!!!" from anything else in the Japanese outfit's catalog. It's as extreme as Merzbow, and somehow seems to be both more and less musical simultaneously. In fact, the entire cut feels like the climax of a long jam that doesn't quite end. You get the picture: the guitarists and bassists are jumping up to signal the end, but it doesn't quite get there. This is the sound of jet engines perhaps in full flight. Dynamics shimmer and shift a bit, but they never resolve. It's bloody awesome. This is ambient music for the end of time.
