AS befits one of the biggest names in world music, Kanye West's third album, Graduation, has been the subject of much media hysteria over recent months.

The man dubbed the Louis Vuitton Don has already scored hits with previous records The College Drop Out and Late Registration, and Graduation will no doubt be another huge seller for the multi-talented rapper.

Fortunately for us, the music certainly lives up to hype.

As ever there are big name collaborations aplenty, with Coldplay singer Chris Martin and hip hop stars Mos Def and T-Pain all lending their voices to songs.

Stronger, Good Life, and Can't Tell Me Nothing stand out on an album packed with imaginative sampling and poignant lyrics.

West has graduated in spectacular style.
