I just L-O-V-E this song! However the odd break in the middle bumps the rating to a.....9.


well, that's the story of my life..
GRRRRRRREAT song, indeed.

"You are a born again atheist."

9! so good.

This song frustrates me horribly. I LOVE the verses! I despise the "experimental" middle section. If Moz had bothered to finish the song, it could have been one of his best. Still, I love the verses enough to give it an 8. Such a pity...
