Dismissed the second full-length by the Chicago three-piece. Obviously, comparisons to Jawbreaker can be made as well as a closer comparison to fellow Chicago three-piecer's The Lawrence Arms. It's pretty obvious Charlie Brown Gets a Valentine are very influenced by the aforementioned Arms; dual-vocals interlacing with each other mixed with melodies and catchy hooks. It works well for CBGAV; the entire album is solid from start to finish. And though some of the tracks do drag on a bit longer than they should (Caffeine at Night could've ended at 2:30), the entire album, start to finish, is interesting enough and full of enough strong songs to keep anyone listener paying attention to the whole album. If you're a fan of the Chicago three-piece Jawbreaker-influenced, melody/energy containing, catchy sound, then Dismissed is one great album to pick up.
