3 stars If this wasn't a prog-rock site, this album would be give five stars. IMHO, this is the best example of how great Steamhammer was, as a British blues Sixties band. "Mountains" marks a return to the blues-rock feel of the first album, after the commercial flop of the ambitious "Mk. II", but it is a bit more hard-rock than "Reflections", showing that maybe they would pursue a "rocker" sound, like Foghat's first and second albums or Savoy Brown in late Seventies. Highlights: "I Would Haven't Thought", the live medley "Ridin' on the L & N/Hold that Train" and the title track. But, like the first album, only progheads interested in blues-rock will find this album interesting.
