Despite the impressive competition, Montreal's Patrick Watson took home an esteemed Canadian music award, the Polaris Prize for Best Album of 2007. Somewhat surprisingly, Watson beat out Arcade Fire, Feist, and Junior Boys among other heavy contenders.
His debut, Close To Paradise, came out earlier this year to critical acclaim. The general reception, however, was somewhat muted. Perhaps this will reignite some interest in the well-deserving album.
