Matthew Good - White Light Rock & Roll ReviewGood has been called Canrock’s best provocateur and its biggest asshole.

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’.”
