This cover screams Prog Rock,and Steve Miro is obviously an ex-progger adapting (rather well) to a post punk world. Its all there, prominent keyboards, including synthesizer solo's, well played melodic Bass playing, but crammed into the three minute symphony bracket.
There's nothing wrong with this of course, I describe myself as a prog rocker (mainly to wind up boring middle aged/middle class 'punks',aint they becoming the new hippies?), and wasn't post punk, prog rock in disguise anyway? The keyword is 'progressive', not 'Regressive' as in Yes and ELP. Looking to advance the art of modern popular music; and I think Miro achieves this goal in a small understated way.
Anyway, anyone who says Van Der Graaf Generator weren't a great proto-post punk band must be either deaf or stupid! (although Miro is obviously not in the same league as Peter Hammill one might add, but did still tread a similar path.)
