The solo is a prime example of a player checking his chops at the door and doing what's right to compliment the vocal melody and ultimately, the overall feeling of the song. There's really only 2 motifs to this solo, bridged by a short melodic figure that rhythmically locks with the other guitar and bass to add the tension. Notice the 2nd part of the solo goes up an octave, again to add to the tension and really feel like your building to a climax.
