Not having gone through their entire discography, I can't comment on other albums where Saga has gone pop.

But this album, from the point of view of this person, who loves Heads or Tales, finds the Human Condition & Worlds Apart excellent albums, well ...

I'll present the two good things I can say - yes, Shake the Tree is good pop. Not that I like it, but it could have merited a place on Adult contemporary radio in the 80s. And I kind of like Password Pirate/Access Code/Password. But is it just that it stands out from a mediocre bunch of songs ?

And that's the thing. Steel Umbrellas is full blown 80s Adult Contemporary. Phil Collins, Sting, and many others put out some good albums of that style back then. Saga, arrives 15 years too late, and short on the compositional end of things.

Really not of interest to the prog fan, barely needed if you're a Saga fan. Unless you're a completist , this is not one you'll miss. Unless you miss 80s radio.
