As someone who is American, but kind of admires Candada from afar (lol), that's interesting to hear about Canadian radio and how its so electro-pop dominated like here. Also interesting how big Hedley are. I'd agree on Faber Drive changing their sound for the worse, just soulless music and lyrics for the most part (did like a handful of songs on the last one). However, I do feel Hedley's material is still strong despite the style change. Loved their "Storms" album (hassle finding it though, I still don't think its officially been released here). Different style, and maybe it helps that I am a big pop-rock fan, but the songs were still there IMO and that's what its about for me. Now, the more recent song "Kiss You Inside Out", I was more eh about.

Marianas Trench are STILL amazing to me and one of my favourite (see? lol) bands. Different in sound to "Masterpiece Theatre" (classic album), sure, but still very much them, so I don't feel they've sold out at all. "Ever After" is also a classic to me. Just wish both bands would catch on more here in the states. I've missed my chance a couple times now, but I WILL see Marianas Trench live someday. Double bill of them and Hedley (throw in Simple Plan, too) would be my dream.

Oh, and I have checked out Static in the Stars due to them being mentioned here before (probably you or Coco). Not too bad, my fave was "We Are" (if that gives any indication of my music taste). Also wish Paul Laine would put out something new (did he work with Static in the Stars? Kinda remember something about that)...been too long and I loved the Shugaazer album plus most of his stuff with Danger Danger (wish I'd seen them live, too).
