[Review One]
And just when it needed a real kick up backside to finish with a flourish, Richard Ashcroft emerged and single-handedly changed the mood – and apparently the weather too – of the event.

The Sunday had been interspersed by heavy downpours to send the audience scattering, but by the early evening the former Verve frontman took to the stage and suddenly the sun came out. And there it stayed for the rest of the day.
A greatest hits selection drawn from the vaults of the Verve and his solo material, delivered with a voice bristling with power, clarity, intensity and conviction, it made it impossible to dislike. From the opening Sonnet, through the Drugs Don’t Work, History, Lucky Man, Song for Lovers and rounded off with a rousing version of Bittersweet Symphony, for many he took the festival crown.

Perhaps, just perhaps, he would have made for a better headliner slot than Suede. But that would be being harsh on Brett Anderson and crew who ripped through a greatest hits set before an audience pondering whether or not to have made a dash for the car park in order to miss the queues had time to think.

[Review Two]
"He actually went down pretty well, an UH heavy set helped for sure, but still got a good crowd and TDDW was probably the most obvious case of everyone in the field singing that I heard all weekend. Even some of the security was singing to a few songs. Managed to get a few laughs as well with some comments on the food vendors signs around the main stage, although I had to chuckle when he put his jacket on inside out at the start of BSS and seemed very puzzled when he couldn't zip it up at the end :lol: There was some 'fuck David Cameron' stuff too, something along the lines of 'when I say 'fuck', the press spell it f-o-o-k, which is further demonisation of the working class'... which I'm not entirely sure he is a member of..."
