Customer Reviews

The last of a fantastic run of classic albums

Husker Du may well have left SST for Warners at this point, but the sound was as sharp as ever, with pointed lyrics and superb songs matched to great pace and sharp delivery. The two main protagonists may well have not exactly been best mates at the time, and the lyrics do betray this at times, but Warehouse does not suffer as a result. So, whilst most purists may point you towards Zen Arcade and New Day Rising for the Husker Du peak, I'd have to say for a great, friendly entry point with all the requisite Husker hallmarks, take this album to your heart and it will not leave you. I have a copy of the vinyl original and it still makes for compelling listening.

A classic

Husker Du's influence on so many of today's band is blatantly obvious. While there's the drive of punk, there's also some great melodies and lyrics. Further to this you have the two different song writing styles and vocals of Bob Mould and Grant Hart. It's been well documented that by this stage relations between the two weren't great, but that certainly doesn't detract from the music, although some of the lyrics perhaps tell a different tale. A sign of how god this album is, is that even at 19 tracks, it never becomes tedious and ultimately you'd like there to be more. Not bad track on it, but if pushed I say standout tracks are Could you be the one, standing in the rain and she's a women, but that's just today. Tomorrow could be another three. A truly great album, by a truly great band.

Hüsker Dü and R.E.M. were the two American post-punk bands of the '80s that changed the direction of rock & roll. R.E.M. became a superstar band; Hüsker Dü never was more than a cult favorite. Nevertheless, their albums between 1981 and 1987 have proven remarkably influential; they provided the sonic blueprint for the roaring punk-pop hybrid that crossed over into the mainstream in the early '90s. Not only did they shape the sound of the music, they shaped the way independent bands made the transition...
