Warehouse: Songs And Stories

Album Summary

Warehouse: Songs and Stories is the sixth and final studio album by alternative rock band Hüsker Dü, originally released by Warner Bros. Records as a double album on two vinyl LPs. The band dissolved following the tour in support of its release, in part due to disagreements between songwriters Bob Mould and Grant Hart over the latter's drug use. This album, along with Candy Apple Grey, showcases the increasing maturity of Mould and Hart's writing—a change which alienated some long-time fans. This album is also known for its battle between the two songwriters, with Mould famously telling Hart that he would never have more than half of the songs on a Hüsker Dü album.Mould later said that this time period was a "rough stretch", but that Warehouse was still a "good record." "Had it been pared back to a single record it might have had more impact, but we were already loggerheads at that point."The album's title comes from the fact that the group had rented some warehouse space in which to write and rehearse; a change from their former practice of writing new material and testing it out on live audiences.During the recording sessions, Hart and Mould replaced a few of Greg Norton's bass tracks for their respective songs when Norton's own contributions were not to their liking. In his autobiography, Mould identified Hart's "Charity, Chastity, Prudence and Hope" as one of the songs whose bass lines were rerecorded, uncredited, by their composers. "Could You Be the One?", was released as a single and video. Other singles released from the album were "She's a Woman (And Now He Is a Man)" and "Ice Cold Ice", with "Tell You Why Tomorrow" also seeing a release as a promotional single. Warehouse: Songs and Stories peaked at #117 on the Billboard Top 200 and also charted for a week on the UK Albums Chart at #72. Hüsker Dü was interviewed and performed "Could You Be the One?" and "She's a Woman (And Now He is a Man)" live on the Late Show with Joan Rivers on April 27, 1987. A cover version of "Up in the Air" was included on Heidi Berry's album Love.

I get this was an influential band, and this album was their last. But this was not good. Turns out good bands can be greatly influenced by bad bands.

Wow, absolutely loved this! Sounded like pop punk before it even was pop punk. I had only known one song by Husker Du before, but didn't think to even check out their albums. I'm a fan. (Shocked that the other reviews are so bad!)

Gave me some major R.E.M. vibes mixed with Barenaked Ladies. I actually really liked this alternative album a lot and didn’t feel like I was listening to the same song over and over on the album.

I love Hüsker Dü especially Zen Arcade and Candy Apple Grey as well as Bob Mould's other work. So I don't know if I conciously avoided Warehouse Songs or just never got around to it. There are some great songs on here which always the case for Hüsker Dü but it just feels over-long and I don't think the magic of the previous albums is there.

I'm a bit torn. I liked the album quite a bit, but I'm not sure why of all their albums this one was picked. I don't know their stuff well but this was quite the departure from their earlier trailblazing and fast temp days. So I almost feel like a sellout for liking this more subdued version of Husker Du. For me, what I noticed was a bit of a mix of REM mature rock and post punk/early alternative (Social Distortion, Bad Religion, The Replacements). Almost had a Wilco feel at times. It probably didn't need to be 20 songs but I guess that's what happens when two main songwriters can't agree. Even though I probably wouldn't have said this was an album that deserves to be heard before you die - if I was making a list - I enjoyed the sound so much that I'm giving it 4 stars.

Jangly melodic indie punk. I used to love this album, but I haven't listened to it in years and I was just disappointed and a bit bored this time round. It still has quite a few amazing tracks, but so many just sound the same.

Reading a few other reviews, a few people have compared this to Barenaked Ladies. Steady on, chaps and chapesses. Them's fighting words round our way. Also, they don't! I have no idea why they'd make that comparison. More reasonably, plenty have noted that this sounds like a heavier REM, mainly because it does. But is that a good thing? I mean, six albums into Hüsker Dü's career (to do umlauts, hold Alt Gr and press 2, then the letter you want umlauted: that's Uncle Stylo's tip of the day), and they've managed to sound like college rock? That seems closer to settling than progressing. Also, why is this a double album? I can't say it gains anything by being supersized, and turns an okay album into an okay album that's twice as long. Now, of course there are highlights and good songs, and there's no fluorescent duds on this, but why would anyone hold this to their heart? Competent but ultimately unlovable. Barenaked Ladies' One Week contains the lyric "Chickity China / The Chinese chicken / You have a drumstick / and your brain stops tickin'". Is it me, or is that a wee bit racist?

My only experience with HD is "Dreams Reoccurring," which was recorded backward. I didn't get in context until reading about that album. It's too bad how the band fell apart after this one, but I can see it. The album is too much, and they admitted it. It should have been edited down to a single album (although which songs should have been cut I am not sure they would have been able to agree upon). A lot of the songs started to sound the same to me. I want to _like_ their stuff, it sounds like something I would be interested in, but this album seemed... bloated to me. Is it highly regarded by HD fans? I wonder...

Good energy in the music, but it was very samey and hard to tell one track from another. Also a word of advice; on double albums you're meant to branch out and experiment, genre hop. Nope, none of that going on here. The backing vocals on several tracks added a little depth and to be fair there was some good guitar playing. But overall (to my ears) this is another unexceptional album on this list. 2.5 rounded up

Svårbedömt. Bitvis bra, melodiöst och rockigt, annars för "amerikanskt" och Smash Mouth-punkigt. Bob Goulds röst är ganska tråkig, förutom på ett par spår då han plötsligt låter som Ozzy? Albumet tappar väldigt mycket på sin omfattning. 20 låtar är alldeles för mycket. Spår 5 och 7-14 är ganska bra, och skulle ensamma bilda ett bra album. Nu är det som ett bra album insprängt i ett dåligt. Vilket är synd. Spår 11, She Floated Away, har ett helt annat tempo än resten av skivan, och låter nästan som någon Pouges-aktig shanty. Mkt bra. Överlag, helt ok myspunk. Bästa låt: She Floated Away.

I like some alt rock, but a lot of this album either bored me or made me cringe. The album felt bland to me, especially considering its runtime. It seems like the singer is trying to win a contest called "How many songs can I worsen with my awkward ugly voice." It wasn't all bad, but I don't want to sift through this album again to find the few moments I didn't mind. I thought it got a bit better towards the end. I seriously doubt a real human has ever said "Wow I really feel like listening to some Husker Du today"

I'm quite reassured this one appeared. Recently I've been listening to too many interesting obscure albums I've never heard of and actually being impressed but this one is by a band I've heard of but just never liked and that was way back in the 80's. I appreciate the energy and integrity but see no musical merit. It shouldn't be here I'm afraid.

Ah the Du. Was ever such great songwriting let down by such awful production....oh guys you did it yourselves? Try and listen past the fact that the drums sound like they are made out of plastic, and there is no bass, to the late-period Du majesty. There are tunes that are catchy as hell (Could You Be The One, ice cold ice, She's A Woman), thrash outs (closer You Can Live At Home Now) and just plain weird (She Floated Away). A warehouse full of songs and stories.

I had never heard of this band before. My first impression was that they sounded a little like REM, and perhaps some Definitely Maybe era Oasis. I read that they started out as a hardcore punk band and evolved to this indi rock style. I like this music and the style - has a good feel to it. I could imagine listening to this on a solo road trip, on the freeway. And I also think I would enjoy this music live.

Hüsker Dü’s later work is straight alternative rock. It is highly layered both musically and vocally and is very melodic. I read that they are the main link between more simplistic and driving hardcore punk and the melodic college rock that would dominate in the 90s. I think this is the best way to describe the later part of their career. Though their hardcore roots are present, I can hear tinges of Barenaked Ladies and Hootie and the Blowfish here that point towards what would become college rock.

"Had it been pared back to a single record it might have had more impact, but we were already loggerheads at that point." You're right about that, Bob. That being said, you're also right when you say you're still proud of this one, just as Grant was, I hope. *Warehouse...* is Hüsker Dü's swan song, and also their second double-album. For the first one, they were still emerging from their first phase as a take-no-quarter hardcore-punk act, and yet also slowly transitioning to some more melodic songs here and there. *Zen Arcade* was therefore not an easy listen for everyone... And yet it was not merely long, it was also inventive, rich, unpredictable. This one here is the end result of that transition to more pop melodies started with that first double-album, after three other LPs, and it highlights the band as a sort of REM rolling on all overdriven cylinders, as most reviewers noted here. Most of the songs on the first two sides are great, even if at first, you might worry that Mould, Hart and Norton might not be able to keep the pace 20 tracks in given the somewhat one-note aspect of that first part. Fortunately, the second side proves those misgivings wrong. There are nice touches in a lot of the tracks (a synth here, some off-kilter rhythms there, a sea shanty..). The last tune, "You Can Live At Home" is one of the best farewell song a band has given to their fans since the one the Beatles did on *Abbey Road*. Of course, it's far weirder than that, with its stragely hypnotic quasi-dance rhythm. But it's fitting for a band that could never be fully cornered in one box. Now is that the *one* album from Hüsker Dü you'd need to select for a list aimed at general audiences? It's a little tricky to say... It's still a long one to digest if you're not keen on punk rock aesthetics (and even if you are, parts of side 3 are a bit lengthy, it's true). On the other hand, *Warehouse...* is far less abrasive than *Zen Arcade*. What about the other records?, you might ask.... Well, *Flip Your Wig* is probably their most cohesive LP, but if some of the songs in it are all-time indie-pop-punk classics, there are still even *bigger* classics on *Zen Arcade* or *Candy Apple Grey*. Whereas *Warehouse* is the most comprehensive and ambitious album of their whole discography, showing the full scope of what Hüsker Dü could accomplish... My oh my, why can't we have a list of *2001* albums instead? Number of albums left to review or just listen to: 842 Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory: 86 (including this one--maybe with *Zen Arcade* and/or *Flip your Wig*, if the latter doesn't simply replace it) Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: 39 Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): 32

I've heard a song or two from these guys once before, might even have been covers, but I've never listened to them like that. First off, I love the name Husker Du, just fun and funny to say. But the music is quite good! It's centerline rock music, not doing much of anything out of the ordinary but as far as core rock sound goes they pretty much nail it. It's a long album, and that weighs it down for me, but it's still quite enjoyable and consistent. A handful of tracks I'll return to. I'd be interested to hear another album from them, especially if they've got any one in particular regarded as their magnum opus because I like their simple style. Favorite tracks: Standing in the Rain, Ice Cold Ice, Turn it Around. Album art: Love the vibrant colors at play here. Took a while for me to even focus on and see the image because the colors were delightfully distracting. But that's all you need baby, it works! 3.5/5

Very R.E.M., if R.E.M. had a lot more punk backbone. It's a long album, and the songs don't really shift up from point A to point B, so it gets tiring to listen to. There's also really no connecting thread through the record, so it's just a bunch of songs together. None of this makes it terrible, but it doesn't make me want to revisit anything aside from the tracks I liked. Favorite tracks: "Ice Cold Ice", "Friend, You've Got to Fall", "Tell You Why Tomorrow"

Cant de cigne de la banda, que va acomiadar-se a un gran nivell. Una d'aquelles bandes que no tenen disc dolent, per més que la seva limitada discografia només engloba sis discos d'estudi. La seva opera magna sempre serà 'Zen Arcade', però aquest segon doble no va molt per sota, i el seu to de comiat premeditat amb els missatges intercanviats de Bob Mould i Grant Hart li donen un toc especial

This is lo-fi US punk. It’s pretty low production quality really, bordering on bad at points. I suppose that taps into the ethos of punk in a way. The songs and lyrics are OK, but I don’t know anything about these guys, having read their backstory - they are cited as a big influence on subsequent bands - including (you can hear it) - Foo Fighters. I think the low mixing/production quality spoils this unfortunately. 5/10

The final studio offering is, as Mould reportedly had it, a “pretty good” album, not one of my favorites though. It does feature one of my top Hüsker songs (Standing in the Rain) plus a couple of honorable mentions (Ice Cold Ice and She Floated Away), but overall it has that disjointed, My songs/your songs problem characteristic of the band with two strong leads that’s about to call it quits. Good but not essential.

The packaging screams late-period monolith, so it's a shame that markers of early or late are lost in the swirl of sound. From the surface, though, emerge points of bright difference: The folk of She Floated Away seems to come from another century and would work to close the album, but it keeps going and not entirely wrongly. By the end, Hüsker Dü are producing a kind of shoegaze haze up top, with a few more songs of note beneath.

Un bon son punk, un peu en avance sur son temps même, mais la durée de l'album est un peu trop longue et passé la barre du 30 min ça devient un peu redondant

Interesting to hear this, and it feels like it influenced bands and a sound. As an album it's too long and pointless.

It wasn't quite so bad that I had to skip songs halfway through, but I'm quitting the album after 7 tracks. It's too distracting and frankly, pretty annoying. I quite dislike the tinny-sounding production and the chaotic vibes of the album.

It doesn’t start that bad and props for being different in the era of horrible music but it just drags a lot.

2.8 - I just hear a group of awkward suburban dads who decided to relive their glory days gigging in bands - listen closely and you can hear the gurgling beer bellies and flapping double chins.

I can't really say that this album did anything for me. It all kind of sounded the same and I didn't feel much of a connection to any of it. I guess I can see why the band opted to call it quits after this.

This was a strangely underwhelming record given that you can clearly hear Hüsker Dü’s influence on so many later post-punk and pop-punk artists. I didn’t enjoy it very much, but it probably deserves to be on this list.

This is fine. The guitar tone doesn't cut at all, so the sound seems a little too round for the style. Their sound is really reminiscent of a lot of bands, especially the vocal tone. Some of these songs I think could be really good, but the overly compressed sound and poor dynamic choices really hamstring this album's impact. Tell You Why Tomorrow is a perfect example.

I don't know much Hüsker Dü, which I guess is a sin since I live in MN. Regardless, this alt-rock sound does nothing for me, it's there and inoffensive but it doesn't move me in any way. Sounds like they were originally more of a punk/hardcore band so if those albums come up I may be into that more.

This felt like a mix of different genres, without committing to any. It’s possible that it felt more interesting during the time it was released, but I found it mostly flat.

An okay album. Apparently an early alternative album before the genre got a bit more famous. don’t necessarily think being early to a genre is special if the music doesn’t bring a lot of entertainment. It wasn’t bad just felt very bland, very long and nothing stood out. The singer would be hard to understand at times. 4.5/10

Doesn't commit too many fouls outside of some annoying vocal rhythms, but quickly wears thin after 40+ minutes of repetitive melodic lines... when there's still half an hour left to go. Some editing of the filler tracks could've made this a tight, exuberant rock LP but as is it's just way too bloated an album.

An interminably long record from what appears to be an R.E.M. cover band using umlauts in their name, even though they're from Minnesota. If you're going to make an "every song sounds the same" album, keep it tight, please. Best track: There were tracks?

Hard to follow up to their peak of Zen Arcade (and what would have been its impact if the production was better). I still prefer Candy Apple Grey for personal reasons. Warehouse is bloated.

when i started listening i wondered why this album is on the list. Then i read the wiki and from what i understand, its mainly its historical value that puts it here. The music isn't bad and the lyrical songwriting pretty good but overal forgettable

Best Song: Charity, Chastity, Prudence, and Hope. Over the course of the song, I went from disliking the vocal chorus to having it drilled so far into my brain I couldn't help but like it. Worst Song: Actual Condition. The Elvis affectation isn't working. Overall: 20 songs straight from the inoffensive middle ground. Painfully straightforward, after the first track you have a pretty clear idea of what the next 19 are going to sound like.

Something about the voice and the sound is basic about Husker Du. It's good, bog standard alt rock, but I've heard and got bored of so many copycats that this sound is dull. Sorry Bob, not into it.

This sounds like what would happen if R.E.M. wrote the theme to "Friends" while Michael Stipe was out of town. Everything about this album screams "generic late-80s rock band" in the most lame way possible. The jangly guitars, the pointless lyrics, the painfully repetitive drum beats, and the bad vocals... it's just not good.

Helt bra sound, kändes dock tre gånger för långt. Första halvan var inte alls lika unik eller bra som andra, vilket jag tror fick skivan att bli så långtråkig. Sångaren var inte riktigt min jam heller ...

Varför valdes dethär Husker Du albumet??? De låter som en trött kopia av sig själva. Varför ett för långt oinspirerat album som låter helt ok när man spelar det på passligt låg volym men man glömmer det så fort de tar slut när man istället kunde ha valt Zen Arcade eller New Day Rising?? Förstår inte alls!!! Girl who lives on heaven hill och books about UFOs är inte här!!!!??!?!!

Þetta er ansi löng plata, ég hreinlega beið eftir því að hún kláraðist. Ekki alslæmt, REM-legt á köflum, en þessar raddir gera ekkert og hljóðheimurinn of einhæfur til að þetta sé skemmtilegt til lengdar. Sorrý, Minnesota.
