Gotta Jibboo was unfinished. Reba did not contain the whistling ending. Trey whistled in the intro to the first Martian Monster and eventually joined Fish on drums. The Phish debut of Broken Heart Attack featured Fish on vacuum. The second Martian Monster featured Trey on drums, Fish on Marimba Lumina, and a David Bowie intro tease from Trey while on drums. The Possum intro featured Fish playing the drums with one hand with his other drumstick in the air and Trey quoting Broken Heart Attack.

Review by rdm331

rdm331 I don’t get all the hate for this show. I couch toured it, and I thought their playing was some of the tightest and most energetic I’ve heard this year. Segues were smooth and seamless. Was the setlist “songy” and were the jams not particularly deep? Yes. So maybe they were short on improvisational ideas. Would you rather that they try to jam longer and then complain about the quality of the jams??

The claims that they ran out of energy are particularly puzzling. The ending of everything’s right was exceptionally energetic. Complain all you want about the placement of rift, but it was played with a lot more fire and accuracy than is standard these days. And Trey nailed sugar shack for once! Fishman was literally running around the stage during HYHU and Trey was jumping all over the place during first tube.

Oh, and we got a brand new song with a vacuum solo taboot??

Clear your minds and surrender to the flow, folks. Phish shows are rarely what you expect or want them to be, and there are certainly times when the playing feels tired, sloppy, and out of sync. Last night was not one of them.

Please stop hating on shows that don’t fit your narrow definition of good/great!

Review by MrDougDoug

MrDougDoug This show is bound to be completely forgotten by time, but I want to say that I absolutely loved this second set. I feel like Trey really wanted the Energy to be the """Ruby Waves""" of the weekend and put a lot of pressure on himself and the band to deliver a big jam out of an unexpected track (a move they had been pulling all weekend with Fluffhead, Number Line, Ass Handed, Moma), and it wasn't quite connecting. Instead of trying to blow the roof off, he just decided to have take off the pressure and have some well-earned fun. That Jibboo was among the most perfectly placed of all time, and completely re-built the band's mojo. Soul Planet was rapturous. The compound bend riff that Trey makes up, then re-interpolates into a non-bendy version is sublime. The rest of the set felt like a 1992 set 20 years later. Reba had everyone in my section of the lawn crying. Martian Monster > Broken Heart Attack > HYHU > Martian Monster was as old school antic fun as it gets. Possum > Slave was a perfect cap. Not a jam-filled donut kind of set, but an incredibly unique set to see in 2022.

Review by Offshoredrilling

Offshoredrilling Well, I guess it is ok to miss a Sunday show every once in a while. The band just seemed a bit rundown. The entire first set really lacked any sort of flow, and frankly, was not well played. No energy at all. Which is ironic, because “Energy “ to open the second set was further indication that this wasn’t going to get better. I try to never bash this band, because they have given me so much joy in my life, but sometimes you have to call it like it is. This show was a dud, nothing I will come back and listen to. Can’t recall a tour in their entire career where the last show of the tour was the worst one played, but here we are. Some awesome music this summer, just not last night in East Troy. I’m sure I will receive hate for these comments, but they are true. On to Dicks!

Review by antelope_witcha

antelope_witcha Plenty of complaints about setlists for this Alpine run. If you attended, it was hard to miss all the good vibe, positive energy, sing-along songs especially Friday and Sunday (eg. Clear your Mind, Set your Soul Free, More, Energy, Soul Planet, etc.). Going out on a bit of a limb here, but I'm nearly certain we may have received 3 nights of songs All in a Major key. That might mean little to many, and nothing to plenty, but Phish (and most bands actually) have oodles of songs in Minor keys. To avoid them completely would be not coincidental IMO. I think we got Majorly punked by the band, and I for one, feel like the positivity that gave us to take back to the world was a gift.

Review by Pinhead_Larry

Pinhead_Larry When Phish gave the nod to the famous Alpine ‘99 show on Saturday, I was really hoping they’d give a nod to the famous Alpine ‘19 show tonight, but alas they had other plans. And plus I’ve often found that when you put something that *you* want from them in the universe, 9/10 times it works the opposite. Well anyway, Phish have given us so many good shows this summer that one of them was bound to be a fizzle. Highlights? Well there really isn’t any, but there’s also nothing really bad except for frustrating set list calls. There’s nothing “technically” bad with this show except that it felt more like a good TAB show than a good Phish show. All of this to say that you really aren’t missing anything if you wanna skip this one.

Overall, I had a fun experience at Alpine Valley and I’d likely make the trek back for another 3-nighter. It really is a beautiful venue and the weather was perfect. I just hope the talkers got their fill of Phish because I could not seem to shake them all 3 nights!
