The song “Highway” is a classic celebratory rock song with a big sound and introspective lyrics. The multiple guitars, both acoustic and electric, create a thick blend of sounds that give the track strength. The bass lines are moving all over the place while keeping everything on track while the drums drive the sound along. The vocals have a cool and mellow backed up with deep harmonies. The structure of the song has several interesting chord changes taking the track through different peaks and valleys, and showcases how tight this band really is.
