Steve Howe's second solo effort is his most essential recording. The Steve Howe Album contains many of Howe's strongest and most original compositions. Whereas some of his albums can be associated with the sound of the bands in which he's played, this release is unique. Howe places himself in a country/bluegrass setting on most of the compositions, and that is what makes this project so appealing - he's a rock veteran venturing outside of his field. Half of the tracks are played by Howe alone, most notably "Surface Tension," his composition for solo Spanish guitar. Other cuts feature former Yes-mates White, Bill Bruford, and Patrick Moraz (all of whom participated on Howe's first solo album), and Claire Hamill, who sings beautifully on "Look Over Your Shoulder. Only one other cut includes vocals: "All's a Chord," on which Howe's singing is awkward but appealing.

The Steve Howe album" shows the roots of Steve Howe's legendary guitar work. This album explores blues, bluegrass as well as classic and rock/prog elements. When Steve Howe was young he had trouble sleeping due to bad nightmares, so to put himself to sleep he would listen to the radio from which he grew familiar with the artists from the 50's, particularly the more bluesy musicians. This period of his life greatly influenced his love for the guitar which he would used as a tool to sleep.

The Steve Howe Album is the second solo studio album of Steve Howe, and was released in 1979. The line up on the album is Steve Howe, Claire Hamill, Patrick Moraz, Ronnie Leahy, Graham Preskett, Alan White, Clive Bunker and Bill Bruford. As happened with Beginnings, Howe invited Yes’ members Alan White and Patrick Moraz and the ex-Yes’ member Bill Bruford to participate on the album. Comparing The Steve Howe Album with Beginnings, we can say Howe didn’t need to do anything else than keep his mouth shut to make his second solo album much better than Beginnings. With few exceptions like the last minute of All’s A Chord and Look Over Your Shoulder, sung by Claire Hamill, the album is an instrumental work. This means that luckily you can enjoy Howe’s unique and distinctive guitar playing without getting annoyed by his weak vocals.
