What sort of insanity is this with Hounds of Love so low? And Please above Actually? Oh dear.

And Duran Duran can feck off for good.

Excellent to see Disintegration and The Queen is Dead in it.

Stone Roses missing.

Tonight at #46!

That was a pig's ear of an album with no possible resuscitation of it's reputation possible (apart from Loving The Alien)

And what's The Dreaming doing so low!

Just realised Prince Charming is at 4! This is such a poor album. Especially compared to Kings of the Wild Frontier
