Re: Pitchfork - The 200 Best Albums of the 1980s

147 Virginia Astley - In the Gardens Where We Feel Secure 1983


The mistake comes from the Pitchfork list, but it seems that the album is actually called From Gardens Where We Feel Secure.

A bit odd to see Pleased to Meet Me in there, I guess it's 3 years before they broke up but it doesn't feel like it's a late album. Or by this criteria, just throw The Queen is Dead or even Nevermind the Bollocks in.
