    Dissed And Dismissed is basically all gold, as long as you're not so jaded by years of inane indie chirruping that any combo of upbeat guitar melody and sad-lad lyrics induces a visceral reaction.

    He really can write a song, and the fact that it never wears out its welcome makes his music damn enjoyable.

    It's really worth putting aside 12 minutes to sit and decide what side of the fence you want to sit on. Or an hour, because the chances are that you will probably have it on repeat.

But theThe biggest complaint i can file against this album is its shortness obviously. This does make the record seem like gimmick. But the infectious and memorable melodies and break up album concept keep me latched on for the short exhilarating ride. Chock full of Power Pop, Rough Rock and Punk influence to keep me engaged and overlook its shortcomings. Expand
