Reviews

"Progressive, complex music is probably a fair description of what Wheel of Smoke are currently bringing to the table with their new album"Sonic Cure" however that is not the whole story, there is plenty of good old fashioned rock'n'roll to be found among the five tracks on offer here as well as good helpings of heavy psych and desert flavoured space-rock."

"The new album ‘Sonic Cure‘ explores the more adventurous side of psychedelic rock, incorporating post-progressive psych-rock elements and harmonic vocals. We’re told the story within the album is based on an unknown, far-off planet with giant loudspeakers embedded into its surface, serving as sound-healing ritual temples for its alien inhabitants." Riff Relevant (www.riffrelevant.com/2019/11/27/wheel-of-smoke-sonic-cure-out-nov-29-via-polderrecords/)

"Om na al die jaren ons rockhart sneller te doen slaan , daarvoor moet je sterk in je schoenen staan. Wheel Of Smoke bewijst met 'Sonic Cure' vooral een band te zijn die evolueert en daar houden wij nog het meest van. Een aanrader voor liefhebbers van voornoemde muziekstijlen, maar ook en vooral voor wie houdt van een band die daarmee op avontuur trekt naar onbekende oorden." Damusic (damusic.be/cd/wheel-of-smoke-sonic-cure-7258.html)

"... this album displays a sonorous vigour and a genuine enthusiasm from the very beginning, that is amazingly pungent, legendary and remarkable. With tremendously hallucinating guitar lines, cohesive and strong harmonies, and gloriously pulsating seventies psychedelic rock vibes, Sonic Cure has an authentically fit retro atmosphere, that subsidizes its splendorous, dense and gracefully dynamic rhythmic features, for the full extent of this amazingly fabulous album." Merchants of Air (www.merchantsofair.com/albums/wheel-of-smoke-sonic-cure)

"Een beetje Led Zeppelin en Jefferson Airplane, een beetje veel Grateful Dead en zelfs zuinig wat Pink Floyd. Dan weet je al dat we naar de lang uitgesponnen psychedelische rock zullen gaan en dat is de hoek waar het Belgische Wheel Of Smoke zich thuis voelt. Hun nieuwe album Sonic Cure klinkt onbeschaamd retro. De sound wappert alle kanten op, zo ongeveer tot aan de grenzen van de progressive stoner. De composities zijn oldschool-prog en als kers op de taart komen er zelfs analoge synths langs die space-accenten leggen zoals ze dat vroeger deden (of zoals Les Robots dat vandaag nog steeds doen). Maar het werkt prima. Sonic Cure is een onvervalste retrotrip die geen seconde verveelt." Rock Portaal (www.rockportaal.nl/wheel-of-smoke-sonic-cure/)

"I enjoyed this album from Belgium's Wheel of Smoke, which is a lot more laid back than the psychedelic rock I've been reviewing lately. Instead of being taken on a wild trip through the cosmos or whatever a particular band plans for us on a particular album, it felt more like I was experiencing it all at a remove. I never felt like I left my chair but I did imagine somebody else going on that trip. Maybe it's more of a dream than a trip. It feels safer." Apocalypse Later (www.apocalypselatermusic.com/2019/12/wheel-of-smoke-sonic-cure-2019.html)

"What I like especially about the music of Wheel of Smoke is that way it wraps you up. The compositions find a way to curl around you and before you know it they are working from the inside. It is not as simple as a long fade in or even a slow build. It is more mercurial than that. Once they get you, you’re had. Give the new one a listen and see what I mean."
