Great review. I think I would have given it a 9 as well, but that hardly matters.

The one thing I disagree with you on is the one-liners. I think Gospel had countless lines that were clearly designed to be one-liners and sometimes fit awkwardly in the grand scheme of the song. I feel like the lyricism here is was more focused on the whole product.

I love that they took a different direction from Gospel, because that would have been a tough record to top. I'm loving this one more and more with each listen, just like I did with Gospel, and that's exciting. I can't wait to see how it holds up throughout the year.

Pretty much. That song feels WAY out of place with the rest of the album. Put a different vocalist on the track and it doesn't even sound like the same band.
It reminds me of El Paso on Taking Back Sunday's self titled. The first single/intro track that doesn't sound like anything else on the record and probably turned some people off.

I love Glowing Crosses though.
