The Climax (Original): One of the most instantly recognisable classic tracks you'll find. The beguiling synth intro and the slam of the beats kicking in catching you off guard everytime. Brilliant start, amazing end but you'll do well to keep everyone interested as it drifts badly in the middle (especially when the beat cuts) even in the context of the mid 70's german electronica it undoubtedly is heavily influnced by. It may be sacrilege to say but it needs an edit. Still. [Score NINE]

The Climax (Basic Reshape): Very dubby with heavy reverse effects. You'll do well to pin it to the original outside of being the flipside. Nice but not very progressive. [Score SEVEN]

The Climax (Original) has to be one of the most beautiful pieces of electronic music ever made. Seriously, this track is just INCREDIBLE.

Basic Reshape is where it's at. No shit, the best, most engaging and well maintained Basic Channel track there is. Wallop.
