So here's "Licorice Night," which is, by my estimation, the best track on the disc. It's a beautiful song, grabbing basic pop elements (uh, "Lollipop" much?) and harmonies and infusing those with the energy that only an 11-person choir can. And, actually, it might be the most mature piece of writing on the disc--lyrics about cupcakes and licorice aside--because of how many different parts you can break the song into. I counted five. Maybe six?

I dunno, just grab it already. You'll dig. It, like everything else Mount Righteous does, is adorable.
