As Canadian music fans, we're proud of our national identity. You can hear it in the music, and, sometimes, you can actually see it on the album covers. There are some covers that look so Canadian that even if you didn't know the artist and couldn't read the text, you'd know where it's from.

It's amazing that Skydiggers Restless isn't on here! As an Ontario boy I remember driving across the prairies looking to find a white windswept barn just like it, and when I did I felt wholly Canadian.
