    Second favourite on the album and probably my fifth favourite song by them overall as it is incredible in its way and despite not being a fan of folk at all, this song was something I didn't expect and therefore absolutely loved

    I personally haven't fallen in love with this track yet, which is odd sense everybody else has?
    I mean the lyrics are superb and the verses has an amazing melody, but overall the chorus is a little too repetitive.
    And while i like the fact that most of the album is uptempo, then i wouldn't mind if this song was slower and longer(less chorus, more instrumentals/layers/stuff)
    Maybe i will regret these words when i listened to it for a longer period.

    Agree with half of that. It is (right now) my favourite track on the album, but not by much. Almost all the other songs are right up there for me.

    My favorite track on the whole album. Really somber and deep, in my opinion.

    Second favorite (after In My Remains)... It sounds like a mix between The Catalyst (the beat of the first third) and Robot Boy (the melody of vocals)... It's a pleasant surprise.

    This is right up there with the best the band has ever produced. It's simply fantastic.

    I was afraid at first of how it could sound, but when I heard it, all the fear was gone. Maybe not the best on the record for me, but still really beautiful

    Does anyone else hear a bit of acoustic guitar strumming right around the time when the chorus kicks in for the first time?

    My favorite song on this album. Period.

    When I heard it for the first time I was blown away. Everything's perfect, from the flow of the song to the lyrics. Mike and Chester did an excellent job singing this song and I still can't believe LP made a song like this one. Definitely one of my favorite LP songs of all time.

    Along with Lost In the Echo, Castle of Glass is tied for best song on this album. It's amazing.

    I thought this would be my least favorite on the album, judging from the descriptions, but I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed it. The drums really reminded me of Breaking The Habit for some reason.

    Might be the best song LP has ever released. I can't think of many that I would put above it.

    I absolutely love the dynamics between Chester and Mike on this song. Mike leads the first half with Chester backing him up faintly, and then in the bridge they switch roles, and during the last chorus they slowly mix together. It's brilliant stuff. This coming from someone who laughed when they heard of the folk influences in this album.

    It's right up there with Lost In The Echo, Roads Untravelled, and Tinfoil/Powerless.

    It's the best song on the album. LITE was probably one of the most anticipated songs on the album, but Castle of Glass was the hidden gem of the album imo.
