I have to admit, I only acquired this one to complete my Steamhammer collection, and I had some reservations. Steamhammer without Kieran White is a bit like the Lynott-less Thin Lizzy. Billed as an attempt by the band to create a genuine Prog album - (without keyboards, what were they thinking?) - the 3 long rambling tracks are genuinely little more than that. There are some interesting passages in Penumbra, and the other tracks also have their moments, but the length and contrived continuity just don't cut it enough to maintain my interest. Imagine if you can the original line-up of Mountain playing their interpretation of ELP's Tarkus, and you're somewhere into the territory of Speech. I love the first 3 Steamhammer albums, but in all honesty, the group should have renamed themselves for this work; it's about as close to misrepresentation as you could get. If you get this, it'll be for nothing else than to fill that Steamhammer gap on your shelf.
