Wow, this is great :D
You've got a great song going right now, but just some problems make me give you a 9 instead of a 10. Aren't I cruel X).
The melody is awesome, and very catchy. So was the bass. The instruments here, although a little bit on the generic side, are still quite awesome, and the string addition at a little more than half through the song was quite unexpected and was excellent. Dunno why, but fast paced strings always fit well with midnight-ish songs :S. I like the little effects you did here and there, like the reverse cymbal or sweep thing you did at the beginning. I don't think you should add applause in this song though, since you're supposed to be picturing yourself driving down a highway while it's midnight, and applause sort of took that picture away from you and gave you a picture of an audience watching a performance of this song instead. Maybe you could add a wind effect instead, picturing the wind soaring by?
The transitions here were great, and I noticed a lot of nice drum transitions, reverse cymbals and fade-in's. New instruments were introduced perfectly, and all the melodies fit excellently together. Song structure is great too, so my only real complaint here is that it was quite repetitive. I didn't really notice any alternate melodies, and the only thing which was a break from the original melody was the ambientish part towards the middle of the song. This needs an introduction to an alternate melody somewhere, and although the instruments are nice and varied, the amount of melodies need working on. Good job with the intro, it started the song up excellently, and the ending was good too, but you should add a lot more silence to the end, and maybe add a long ending note as well.
The drums here are quite original and really fun to listen to. I liked the kick you used here, although as Chromonaut said, it's too unfiltered. Other than that, I noticed some really awesome things in the drums, like that sound at 2:15. Was that a reverse kick or something? Whatever it was, it rocked. I liked the double snares too. There was a nice amount of awesome sounding samples too, and in general, the drum beats were really well varied without getting random. They were just the right loudness and fit excellently with the song. The drums here rock.
Well, it's an almost flawless song, but like all other songs, it has a few negatives. In all, I really enjoyed it, and if you work on the stuff I said above, this song will be perfect in my opinion. Overall, great job, and sorry for the long review, you've got to get used to that when being reviewing by me ;).
