4 stars When I did the review of Where's the Nine's Desensitized album I referred to this near masterpiece by Planet X as main resemblance. Well, I don't like to brag but how right I was I realized when I did my final listening session for the review of this magnum opus by Planet X.

The resemblance is huge really, both albums are probably the best examples of full blooded fusion in metal style containing pretty complex compositions. When I bought Quantum several years ago I wasn't too pleased with what I heard due to lack of nice melodies. Right now I realize producing straightforward melodies isn't the objective of Planet X even though I have to add this Quantum is the only album by PX I know so far.

Anyway, complexity and almost improvising fusion is actually all what this album is about and if you happen to like the style Quantum is just about the best there is on the market I have no doubt. Like I said, a near masterpiece just falling short (same as Where's the Nine by the way) because of the absence of memorable tracks. The power lies in the strength overall, no weak fillers, just great tracks on this one. So 4 stars is the only logical outcome to me.
