4 stars As an album i would rate this one 3.5/5, most of the songs here are really top notch but what lets this one down is the fact that this feels like an album of leftovers or more like an EP and less like a cohesive unit start to finish. The first three tracks are just amazing, they feel like tracks kept out of planet x's quantum because they we too "happy", as usual brett garsed shines here like a diamond would, using is skills to deliver the most amazing crunchy riffs and liquid-fluid solos. Next goes Wings Of Insanity displaying zakk wylde style, that means heavy riffing, amazing screaming harmonics and hugely wide vibrato, a very nice track. Frozen By Fire is the most vulgar track here, it's ok but it doesnt really sound original or overly exciting. The three tracks in wich Taka Minamono plays are nice and make a cool combination between derek's ambient sounds and Taka's yngwie-clone style, again nothing really original but pretty good quality-wise. The album finishes with the pretty dreadful So Far Gone in wih zakk displays his terrible singing.

1. Antarctica (5:26) 5* 2. Ascension (2:14) 5* 3. Primal Eleven (7:56) 5* 4. Wings Of Insanity (3:50) 4.5* 5. Frozen By Fire (5:21) 3.5* 6. The Lone Spaniard (3:08) 4* 7. Molecular Intro (1:03) 4* 8. Molecular Heinosity (3:28) 4* 9. So Far Gone (7:24) 2.5*
