Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
2 stars Steamhammer's last album was a posthumous release if memory serves me well asa the group had disintegrated by then. The general sound is a lot like the preceeding Mountains album , full of guitar riffs/works .

Do not be fooled by the lenght of these three tracks, nothing to do with lenghty prog epics. Actually this album has little to do with prog, IMHO! There is virtuosity present on this album as this is full of guitar histrionics.

Although this album is highly touted by collectors , IMHO, it is best to avoid it unless you are a confirmed fan of Steamhammer.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Steamhammer's fourth-and-final album proves to be both their most progressive but also their weakest. Virtually instrumental, 'Speech' eschews the group's earthy blues-prog style in favour of three lengthy, drawn-out, metallic tracks that features none of the funky gusto evident on their previous three albums. The lack of vocals is a genuine surprise, as Kieran White's gruff, yearning tones were an important part of the group's make-up, but it's the total lack of inspiration or catchy melodies that is really noticeable. 'Speech' was recorded and released after original drummer Mick Bradley had died, and for the rest of the group the spark had simply gone, which would explain the going-through-the-motions feel that drenches the album. Maybe they should have stuck to their original bluesy sound and not gone for the bold new prog-rock sound, maybe they should have called it a day after the excellent 'Mountains'. Whatever your view there is no doubting that 'Speech' is a poor end for a once-great band who deserved a better swansong than this. 'Speech' is, simply put, strictly for Steamhammer completionists only. STEFAN TURNER, LONDON, 2010

3 stars Steamhammer's fourth record "Speech" was a different thing for me to review. It was released in 1972 and has a cool and artistic cover, presumably taking place somewhere in space. And it was space I got some thoughts about when I heard this form of music. I located it somewhere between blues r ... (read more)

5 stars How it is that this indescribably PHENOMENAL quintessential prog-rock album has only been reviewed by 4 other people is absolutely astonishing, especially considering that this site is taylor made for prog-aficianatos.

1 stars Hughes Chantraine is right. "Mountains" was a posthumous album, released shortly after Mick Bradley's death by leukemia. In fact "Speech" is a very poor album, with lenghty although disjointed tracks (sometimes it seems that they recorded independent pieces of music, then gathered all together ... (read more)
