Generally in "of phrases' the definite article is used. For example:
Mike has the charm of a good artist.
Although "charm" is an uncountable noun, it is defined by "an artist", so it must take the article. But I have come across some uncountable nouns, which are too modified in a way, which do not require using " the".
Robert has control of Mike.
Kate has command of English.
Is there any way to feel or work out when articles should be omitted?
