Finally, after two consecutive losses in the race for album of the year, Kanye West will win the elusive top Grammy prize, asserts The Envelope's Extended Play blogger Todd Martens. "Graduation" has all of the key elements needed for victory, he says, plus "there's nothing else in that category that jumps out other than Kanye. Amy Winehouse, she's not strong enough (here). She can clean up in the singles categories. Herbie Hancock's and Vince Gill's records — they're nice records, but they don't represent the past year in music. They're not what 2007 sounded like."
