AllMusic Review by

The Climb is a set of heavily sequenced soundscapes from Ian Boddy, a master European e-musician. Performing on analog and digital equipment, Boddy stays firmly within the constraints of Berlin school e-music. These soundscapes have lots of drama and energy. Boddy has always given himself completely to his work and this is no exception. His sound worlds have that little extra something that deep listeners recognize. Boddy has fun making his music and conveys that enjoyment to his listeners. But the music is serious; Boddy takes his music seriously, though he does not take himself too seriously. This disc will appeal to fans of Ron Boots, Hemisphere, Rudy Adrian, and Radio Massacre International. This is essential e-music.
