Not true, some of the Canadian Press has a clue as to what's going on.
Free newspapers, a la Eye and Now and pretty reliable, as is Impact, and
really good mag is Chart. It's just the magasines that in the late 80's
when hair bands were in style they all called themselves things like
"canada's rock magazine" and other shit. And in 1991 with the dawn of
grunge they quietly removed this subtitle from their pages. Their staff has
not changed since these days, therefore they have no clue as to what they
are talking about. I remember a few years ago when MEAT magazine called
themselves Canada's metal magazine and rated a good album 5 M's (1 M being
light, and 5 being full-out heavy metal). They have since stopped all of
these old habits and have turned themselves into your regular "alternative"
coverage magazine. That's why you don't even bother to pick up those titles.
