All subjective I suppose, I like a lot of rap and especially early 90's nwa, Cube, Dre, Coolio, etc, they all had a certain uniqueness to their voice, style and melodies, Lamar just seems like droning uber dramatised marketed bullshit to me, horrendous boring monotonous dog shit of the highest order, but all dressed up to the nines with all the fluff, do you really need all that, shouldn't your music do the talking? I am clearly missing something, but like I said, all subjective I suppose.

Biggest load of tripe I’ve read on here in a long while.

I forgot the majority of the RAWK collective only listen to what I class as “Ye Da” music.

Pretty surprised with McCartneys set

The back catalogue he has he could’ve filled it with songs everyone knew and could sing along to. Had them stood there quiet for large periods

Even addressed it at one point and said he didn’t care he was going to play them anyway. I think he may have thought that was going to be funnier than it was.

Not really that surprising for me. Was basically the main set he has been touring with in America this year.

Springsteen did the show in New Jersey a week ago. They did the same 2 songs.

I was only surprised that Grohl came, which I thought was great for Macca to get him over after his recent loss.

If you look back over the last few tours he has done, he usually does the same songs, with slight variation.

But as been said he could have done 40 Beatles songs if he wanted to and ignored anything else, his back catalogue is that good.

Weekend highlights for me...

St Vincent
Confidence Man
Sleaford Mods
Wet Leg
Caribou
Holly Humberstone
Declan McKenna
Pet Shop Boys

They have life in them, they have humour, they're arrogant, they're cocky and they're proud. And that's what I want my team to be.

Bicep and Roisin Murphy on West Holts are very worth your time if you've not seen them boys and girls. Come to the thread late but not seen them mentioned much last couple of pages.
2 Midfielders in the next window.

Another midfielder and a forward in the window after that. And probably another young CB in the same window.

Anything else is negligent.

Haha might be joining you in that pursuit. But can see demand for next year being through the roof. I know it’s usually mad anyway, but off the back of this weekends coverage and the performances I can see plenty who’ve not been for a while or before fancying it.

I’ve not been to a festival since my early 20s about 25 years ago, but have come away from watching this weekend genuinely thinking about it. My better half who’s never been to something like a festival decided she’d quite fancy it as well after watching the coverage this weekend.

Yeah just put in the 4 or 5 Wings / solo songs everyone knows - Live & Let Die, Band on the Run, Maybe I'm Amazed, Coming Up, etc - and do Beatles songs for the rest. It was amazing that he played for nearly 3 hours, but he could've cut out 7 or 8 songs and made it more focused.

Sounds good, let's do it!

I know what you're getting at, but realistically this is the last time a mass audience will get to see these songs performed live by a surviving Beatle, they  don't want to hear the likes of Junior's Farm, Letting Go and My Valentine, and it would've been a better set without them.

Wouldn't need to, just a couple more well-known songs and cut out the more obscure stuff. Anyway it's no big deal.

Have you listened to any of his albums, Andy? I would definitely recommend them if you haven't. "To Pimp a Butterfly" in particular, all subjective like you say but that album  is unlike anything else released before it in hip-hop.

I've listened to some but I will go back and give it another try, just honestly don't get the attraction to his stuff from what I have heard so far. I mean tracks like 'Alright' for example, which is supposed to be one of his best, just seem so incredibly bland, monotonous and dull with nothing special about it and I've give that a good few tries, so that leaves me feeling half of this is about something else I just don't get.

Apart from anything it's made me feel so fucking old and past it  ;D

I hear where you're coming from Rob.

We kind of think.  Oh just do Sgt Peppers, I Feel Fine, Back in the USSR and so on.  Trouble is, I expect there's one hell of a lot of arrangement that goes into the set list they perform live.

Not like Paul has the other 3 Beatles or Wings behind him and they can simply rattle his whole back catalogue off with ease. 

On the other hand, they must have known for a hell of along time they were doing Glastonbury and could have prepared the ultimate "sing-a-long" set.

The upshot is, McCartney is pretty much musical royalty, has absolutely nothing to prove and can do what the fuck he likes.

As you say though, no big deal.

I really love some of Kendrick Lamar's stuff. He has one of my favourite songs of all time, The Art of Peer Pressure. I urge you to check that one out, so you can at least say you like one thing he's done. The album it's from is generally very strong too.

That being said, I do also agree with you. I think he has plenty of songs that are not just bad, but almost nauseatingly hard to listen to. One of those being Alright, as you mentioned.

I also find he's one of those artists who people tend to go way overboard with in terms of their praise. I'm thinking mainly in terms of lyrics here.

Been catching up as I was out all weekend. Really enjoyed Phoebe Bridgers set, that stage and crowd was perfect for her. Wolf Alice also sounded good, though I still haven't checked out their most recent album.

Nicely set out view there, think it's very fair. I do think he is badly overhyped but I don't hold that against him and still do love a handful of songs. I just can't get past the same issue you bring up. I reckon around 2/3rds of his albums are almost unlistenable to me.

The example song you gave to check out eventually gets really good, but the first minute is plain bad to me. As are the annoying similar sounding talking motifs.

I think the first minute that you're referring to has aged really badly. The sae goes for two of the singles on that album, "Swimming Pools (Drank)" and "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe".

In what way would you say it's aged badly, out of interest? Lyrically?

That album is by far my favourite of his, hit after hit and exceptional lyrically. I felt To Pimp a Butterfly was a less enjoyable listen albeit lyrically it was obviously pretty special. I can take or leave the rest of his stuff but for me the songs from that album were absolutely superb and I wouldn't say they've aged badly at all.

Not lyrically! I have no notes when it comes to Kendrick’s lyrics - I think he is a genius songwriter. It’s just the way the vocals sound, the pitch edit sounds dated to me. I agree with you on that album being fantastic, I just don’t think those two singles are as good as the rest of the album.

I’ll watch the Kendrick Lamarr set at some point but went for PSB last night as I knew I’d know all their songs. I’m crap for keeping up with newer music.

To contradict that I did watch Fontaines DC yesterday, like wheat I’ve heard from the new album although didn’t blow me away live as much as I thought they might.

Need to try abs find the whole Jamie T set - only caught him on the highlights show but the crowd looked awesome for it, properly into it.
The Jamie T set was great. Absolutely off his head and the crowd were really into it.

Yeah, watched it all on Monday. Loving his paunch and shuffling round on stage like an arthritic old boy (reminded me of Dot Cotton’s old husband for some reason!). Funny though, and had the crowd in the palm of his hand.

I expected to like IDLES, Amyl and the Sniffers, Courtney Barnett and Wet Leg. I wasn’t disappointed, they were all excellent. The band that blew me away though was Khruangbin.
