Matthew Good - White Light Rock & Roll Review
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Matthew Good - White Light Rock & Roll ReviewGood has been called Canrock’s best provocateur and its biggest asshole. But give the Vancouver artist credit: he’s made a mark with his prickly nature and drawn attention to worthy causes in the process. Ultimately, Good may be a better pamphleteer than a songwriter. While he’s written prolifically and convincingly about human rights issues on his website, his latest album features angry but obvious rockers like “Alert Status Red,” in which he sings that “the only place to find freedom is in the dictionary under ‘F’.”
