Highway Dancer is not any one thing. It shifts from 80s sounding songs of triumph that are reminiscent of greats like Bruce Springsteen, to dark and lonely ballads that almost sound like they could be part of a Patti Smith spoken word set. This album is overall a bit slower and darker than his other releases, and it suits him. His voice is deep and effective in times of loneliness or pain. I appreciate his dedication to artistic honesty — he is not abiding to what the rest of the pop scene is telling him to do. He is doing him. And we can all learn something from that.
