"...From the distant swirls and ominous distorted bass that introduce the heady opener “Radiate,” to the fiercely up-tempo closer “Eternity,” listeners are treated to fifty minutes of hypnotic, heavy rock. Heads On Fire is an exhibition in rich tones, swirling effects, and powerful rhythms." (

"Heads On Fire serves as both a perfect primer to the band’s milieu and a strong followup to Glitter Glamour Atrocity. There is no shortage of memorable sounds on either album. If it is volcanic rhythms and cosmic melodies you seek, or harmony between ambience and chaos, or maybe just a record you can spin a few times while out of your head, White Hills has you covered."  ( "Drifting along a cosmically inclined spectrum of Kraut, space, psych and fuzzed out, reverb-heavy rock, White Hills are ardent peddlers of sublimely extraterrestrial wares. Beginning with the swirling synth and rolling, buzzing riffs of “Radiate”, Heads on Fire moves from one frenzied, corkscrewing solo to the next, with accompanying flourishes of exuberant percussion, thumping bass and beautifully warped keyboards. With a focus on the heavier, grittier aspects of space rock, White Hills toss out some thoroughly wicked and no doubt illicitly-inspired jams. “Ocean of Sounds” resonates with chanted vocal lines and huge, raw riffs. “Visions of the Past, Present and Future” is pure psychotropic madness, smothered in corpulent dollops of Hawkwind-like instability, and the 26-minute “Don’t Be Afraid” works its way towards its constellational climax with passages of twirling ambience and plenty of wah-wah lunacy. It’s a supernova delight, to say the least, and it’s gloriously hypnotic." (
