That's my favorite Scorsese movie, it's really underrated and easily my favorite Daniel Day Lewis movie. Considering their other work that's pretty high praise. I still can't believe Chicago got the Oscar that year.
I love Gangs of New York too, not sure it's my favorite Scorsese film though...Casino, Goodfellas, The Color of Money, Bringing Out the Dead, The Departed, Cape Fear, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, etc. Too many I really love to pick a favorite. Not sure I'd give it a 9 either simply because of Cameron Diaz. She was simply dreadful and completely unconvincing, maybe the worst cast character ever in the history of film...definitely the worst ever cast in a Scorsese film. If they cast....pretty much anyone else that film is a homerun. Still it's a solid 8.
