    I was impressed by Laura Marling earlier - hadn't really heard any of her stuff aside from the track she did with the Mystery Jets years ago

    And the Killers were great too (for a bit of nostalgia if nothing else!)

    Pat Thomas is easily the best thing I have seen of the glasto coverage.

    Barry Gibb is absolutely having it. Such great songs. He's had me welling up a couple of times!

    This pretty much encompasses how I feel about them.

    I thought maybe I'm just tired of overdriven guitars but I'm quite keen on Mastodon and Arkane Roots so?

    His singing style is pretty hard on the throat. Combine that with years of drink/drugs/fags and that's what you get.
    I don't want to be one of 'those people' but I'm a singer (well part time) and the times where by I've had to sing Liam fronted Oasis songs have been some of my hardest performing. And I smash Queen.

    It's true. I've heard Jive do some Mark Morrison. He's a singer alright.

    The Killers are mostly nailing it, apart from a couple of wobbly choruses.

    Still can't get my head around how Ed Sheeran's such a huge artist. His songs are basic and uninventive, his voice ain't all that and there's a depressing tone to most of the tracks.

    Ed Sheeran's music fills me with hope. Specifically the hope that the Earth suffers an extinction level event.

    I've not seen loads of the coverage but so far Laura Marling has probably been the set I've enjoyed most

    I've watched fuck all but Laura Marling has always been brilliant.

    As for Liam Gallagher, he's one of the worst live performers I've ever seen.
    Shit in every way.

    I've seen The Killers be fantastic and I've seen them be boring as hell but watching the highlights now I don't think I've ever seen someone as happy to be playing a show as Brandon Flowers was during that set tonight

    Ed Sheeran has earned my grudging respect, purely becauseI only realised today that he builds his loops up on the fly. Great opportunity to fuck up an entire song.

    Laura Marling's set was the most musical set I've seen yet, and evidence that there's next to no filler on any of her albums, with her playing tracks off all of her albums but the first I think. Nice to hear some updated versions of older songs too.

    But the most spectacular set I've seen thus far has to be the Flaming Lips set, who brought their set of inflatable characters with them, and saw Wayne Coyle crowdsurfing in a zorb ball and getting lost thus missing the start of his chorus. Plus lots and lots of confetti. I pity whoever has to clean the stage after that lot.

    I watched some of this set and it only confirmed my view that Brandon Flowers just cannot sing. He was flat as fuck. Good fun, especially in a festival/stadium set up but that's about it imo.

    His voice has always just grated a touch and, yes, he's usually slightly flat.

    Yep. I'll never understand it either.

    @Zerobob I saw and met Ed in 2009 when my mate put him on as a support act for pub gig attended by about 10 people. He was professional, did his own loops and generally seemed decent. Nice enough guy too, if a little bit full of himself.

    I'd like to say I knew back then he'd be big. But I didn't. And I still don't understand how.

    Saw Oasis play Glastonbury in the 90's, in my addled state I ended up watching a Hotdog van for half the set. I realised my mistake and watched Oasis for two songs, then went back to watching the Hotdog van.

    He's a very talented songwriter. Modern pop hit machine, think he would have benefited from the full band treatment at glastonbury. Admire him sticking to his roots and as someone who also uses a loop machine it's very impressive how he does it on the fly.
