Has BSS Jumped the Shark?

This Magazine Staff

My favourite indie band Broken Social Scene is discussed in a feature in the October 7 issue of Maclean’s magazine.
It’s a good read (it’s not particularly deep or anything, but it quotes Leslie Feist), and don’t get me wrong, this is not another gratuitous bash at Maclean’s (cause it just as easily could be a feature profile on E! Talk Daily), but what does it mean to an indie music artist to be profiled in one of Canada’s largest circulation mainstream publications? To BSS I’m guessing bigger record sales (although the link to an mp3 off the new album might put off potential fans in Tweed). But to fans, does it mean they’ve jumped the shark? Please discuss.
