Ostensibly a riff on country-western music, it really feels more like synth rock record about longing and loneliness.

The light-hearted, psychedelic chamber-pop of the Fields first few records beguiles, almost going out of it's way to underplay The Highway Strip’s somber themes. Thankfully Merritt will not be suppressed, and the music just compliments his drunkard’s croon. It also doesn’t hurt that this record, which is obsessed with the American sprawl, happens to be one of the best at translating that feeling of desolate hope one can experience as the yellow lines begin to blur
Bittersweet Precious Brooding Intimate Ironic Reflective. The Charm of the Highway Strip. Stephin Merritt took more of a narrative approach than usual on The Charm of the Highway Strip, which was in part inspired (as the title indicates) by on-the-road experiences and exhibited a (very slight) country influence. Not as good as Holiday, although it has characteristically agile songwriting and production.
