Second Best album after Disraeli Gears.
Obvious highlights - White Room, Crossroads, Born Under A Bad Sign, Politician, Those Were the Days
Enjoyable to me but not for everyone - Pressed Rat & Warthog, Deserted Cities of the Heart
Throwaways - Passing the Time, As You Said

It would be hard to not take a step backward after the awesome Disraeli Gears. If one steps back from expectations, this is still a very good album from talented, accomplished musicians.

Nothing more than a leftover album, only "White Room" here is really worth a listen and maybe the cover version of "Crossroads"

It's sad to see this go outside the top 1000. It seems like all of Cream's albums are

"Wheels of fire" contiene alcune delle cose migliori e di quelle peggiori espresse dai Cream, sia nel disco da studio che da quello dal vivo: "White room" nel primo e "Crossroads" nel secondo sono le migliori, il resto si fa ascoltare...

Great album, although it's not as good as Fresh Cream, or Disraeli Gears, it's still an all time great. This album is different from Disraeli Gears in that it has a better flow, but Disraeli Gears is better because it has more highlights, and more of their signature songs on it.

Best Tracks: White Room, Deserted Cities of the Heart, Crossroads, Toad

I'm only rating the studio disc.
IMO this is their best album. On songwriting in par with Disraeli Gears but the band plays better and the sound is clearer.
The live disc is fantastic but as I said the rating doesn't include it.

Very good!

Half live/half studio, wheels of fire, is another classic Cream album. White room, and, crossroads, are great. Toad, is still dull though. Drum solo's should never be allowed on records, let alone a gig. Still, classic stuff from a classic band.
