To Everyone Who Missed the Isle of Wight Festival: Awwww diddums!
Nice Surprises: Snow Patrol, Melanie C, Paolo Nutini and Amy Winehouse.
Let Downs: The Feeling are late period Genesis in disguise. James Morrison is slightly better than James Blunt - but that's nothing to write home about.
Bloody Brilliant As Expected: Echo & the Bunnymen, Ash, Kasabian, Muse, Fratellis and Keane.
One to watch: The Hedrons (and I only heard them from the campsite!).
Shhh: The Rolling Stones set (especially from halfway through) was actually quite good - but don't quote me on that. They may be lazy blues boys in their dotage, but 'Sympathy for the Devil' is still as good as it ever was. Primal Scream must really be pissed off they're still touring.
