Well here's a website. I'd really appreciate any criticism and help you'd be willing to give me. Thanks.

the top flash part is a nice touch. i really don't like the way the interface is just floating over the background. i think it would be better if it was tied into the background somehow. also, i understand that it's supposed to be grunge on the outside of the interface but it looks like a really crappy photoshop selection. fix that allong with the background and lose the transparent gif's. content area looks like a box window. any way to tie it in with it surrounding graphics?

ahhhhhh attack of the killer Iframe. I'll never understand the appeal of them.

for crits:

- way more contrast is needed
- the floating bg is not needed. Your main layout doesnt even scroll so its even more pointless.
- i dont like the bg. whats with 0's and 1's? They dont look like an electronic it doesnt mean anything (that i can see)
-the splash page....well to be horrible. The colors dont match your layout, its very dark which makes the picture seem darker, the orange Enter button is in a bad place.


- maybe move the band name (on the splash page) so its centered above the img and do the same thing with the enter it below the image. Aslo get rid of the squares & dots doesnt help.
- try using one of the blue colors on the layout as your splash BG.
- try a solid background on the layout. Its a very busy you want the rest of it as calm as possible.

Well like the people above mentioned, you should get more contrast between the main site and the background... and talking about background, this one doesn't really fits well with a band's website or I am missing something.

Your header is awesome though, very nice job on that one.

Just a last thing, you might consider adding a 'who we are' or 'what is Diaspora' kind of section to tell more about the band... why that name, how those people met and what is their philosophy. All you have there is a few words on everyone's tastes, but nothing about the group, I think it needs more information on that matter.

Yep i agree with all said above you could try making the page open in a separate window ? Fixed size. soo you wont worry about our BG and the grunge effect is kinda off theme sorta, try feathering the edges and fade black n white like the header...uuuh i dunno just a thought :> nice header tho i like it

What's with the splash? It's ooglah. The blue is not a nice blue bg. You really gotta work on the splash.

As for the page, Its ok. I like the little flash thing iwth the squares. I agree the BG is pointless.

I don't know why, I just don't like the whole overall feeling you get from the blue. It just feels... "periwinkle." It's weird. Not the kind of thing i'd expect from a rock band.

Over all - it's ok.

yeah it's pennsylvania.
i'm working on the splash... also what color should i change the background to to give it a good contrast? The only colors I've found to work (lime green and brown) are rather ugly. Any suggestions?
