Husker Du signed off in early 1987 with this double album which weighs in at 20 tracks and 66 minutes - this from a band who released a double album in 1983 (the innovative eclectic Zen Arcade), two seperate albums in 1985 (the awesome punky New Day Rising and the similarly impressive Flip Your Wig), and then their major label debut, the slightly less thrilling, but still enjoyable Cany Apple Grey. Part of the reason why they were so prolific is that, like Lennon & McCartney, Bob Mould and Grant Hart split the songwriting more or less 50-50, effectively making it feasible to split this into 2 seperate albums.
The Bob MOuld offering is lyrically very mature, offering missives about being stoodf up by the lover you should've dumepd ages ago (Standing in the Rain), being stuck in a position you need to escape (Up In the Air, featuring the memorable lyric "is love another way to count the things you haven't got?"), trying to salvage a relationship (the grower Turn In Around) and Friend You've Got To Fall, an apparent attack on Grant Hart, as they did not like each other one bit by the end of the band. However, for me the best of Bob's 11 tracks are These Important Years - "revelations seem to be another way to make the days run faster anyway", the single Could You Be The One? and the lyrically interesting Bed Of Nails.
Grant Hart provides most of the louder moments, although the commercial sheen to the production keeps things a long way away from the stuff on SST. His finest pop song ever, She's A Woman (And Now He Is A Man) is an extremely catchy piece which, along with the Mould tracks mentioned, makes for a fine final quarter of the album. Too Much Spice looks at the effects of overdoing life and finishing up empty and joyless, which seems rather autobiographical.

Husker Du were one of the most prolific and influential bands to emerge from the US in the eighties. This, their seventh album in little over five years, is a fitting testament to their intense, but melodic hardcore sound. The songwriting chores are split pretty much evenly between Bob Mould and Grant Hart, and explore familiar themes of alienation, loneliness, helplessness and lost love. Yet despite the less than cheerful subject matter the music is always uplifting, from the album opener "These Important Years" to "You Can Live At Home", with Grant Hart screaming that, despite everything, running away from home may not be the answer.
This was supposed to be the record that would break Husker Du yet it ended with them breaking up, after the suicide of their manager, David Savoy. A shame really, because this is a melodic, literate, intelligent album that manages to be sad without being depressing- and, for those that care about such things, it rocks big time.
Bob Mould acheived greater success with Sugar, but this was when he was at his creative peak. Warehouse: Songs and Stories deserves a wider audience, make yourself a part of it.

There are two Husker Du's - the hardcore, post-punkers on SST Records in the early '80s, and the more refined, commercial sounding, but still punky band of the late '80s. This ranks alongside 'Zen Arcade' as Husker Du's best album. Although Grant Hart's songwriting on 'Warehouse...' is a little out of sync.... Bob Mould's songwriting is still as good as it always was. The top songs on this cd are 'Ice Cold Ice', 'Could You Be The One?' and 'Too Much Spice'. All in all, 'Warehouse: Songs And Stories' is a brilliant swansong from a brilliant band. One of the best albums of the 80s.

Format: Audio CD
Ok lets get things clear, I'm one of those listeners who go into deep research when listening to lyrics; but with Warehouse I still havent even read inside the sleave, I got it, played and never looked back, it is just so listenable, you'll get hooked immediately - beautiful melodies and vocals
I picked up Warehouse after I heard James Dean Bradfield (Manic's guitar/vocals) found them to be an influence when he was younger.
Some may say Warehouse isnt what Husker were all about; which is kinda true, they were punk to begin with; but whats the point in getting older and still singing about the same youthful rants?...Husker matured and produced an album that is so listenable yet passionate - and not to mention inspiring, it really opened up my eyes to various playing styles and profound melodies.
I wont go into detail, but the stand out tracks for me are;
Charity, Chastity, Prudence and Hope (great percussion)
Standing in the Rain,
Ice cold Ice,
Its not peculiar (I love the chorus melody - so original)
Up in the air (loving this track too)
All tracks are a treat (really I'm serious)..all are individual with multiple glorious aspects,
Its also a special feeling to know of Husker Du and their work during this age ...its a relief to hear a band with such orignality from over a decade ago..
A pure treat, start to finish

I own all their albums and this has got to be their 2nd best after Candy Apple Grey. There has been alot of talk about selling out and going commercial, but I prefur their older work and the older I get the harder it is to listen to such work as Zen Arcade, New Day Rising, Flip your Wig and as for Land Speed Record I was never a fan of that one. These 4 albums are not some thing you could just put on and sit down and and have a relaxed time, or have as back ground music while you do some thing else, but their later two albums Candy and this one you can. This album has 20 songs on it and when I brought it in the mid 80s it was a double album on Vinyl. There are a few weak tracks but on the whole is very good, and thats why I now brought it again on CD.
There are some stunning tracks on this disc like Ice Cold Ice, She Floated Away, Visionary, and one of my favourites You Can Live At Home. Which there is a hint of the power you will find in their earlier work. So to all thoughs young people out there who might be interested in their earlier work get, I would buy Candy 1st then Warehouse and then work backwards buying Flip Your Wig first and if you like that one then get their even earlier work.
