Welocme to DF Joe.

Site looks nice and clean, good geometrics. The photoshop image at the top needs blending better.
Only areas of concern is the use of caps for body text. U/Lcase is easier on the eye to scan and read, that's why books are lowecase. the rule is caps only for short headlines.

The actual branding elements are missing! I'm presuming it is Longfellows the band - then where is the branding and name? Apart from that - nice clean work.

urhg, Reminds me of 1998. Pixel stretches are what you do when you cant think of someting more interesting. Also I find the massive heading images kind of patronising.

But what if some people think theyre better than they actually are?

(I need to add that although this is your intro thread, it has NO RELEVANCE whatsoever to you, so hi :p)

It's all part of life's rich and somewhat confusing tapestry.

Book of Life: From the Great Leo Burnett, he built a global company on this:
"Always aim for the stars, you may not touch them, but neither will you end up with a handful of dust"

OK

No band name anywhere obvious - it needs to be there to reinforce brand awareness.

I don't like the stretched sides - just do a fade out and then a flat colour or something.

The menu doesn't need to stretch across my screen, keep it within the confines of the block in the middle.

The buttons/headers/links on right seem a little like a 'my first toy' approach. , they seem oversized in relation to the site.
