mix of square brackets and triangles-surrounded-by-circles on frontdoor
doesn't work. mix of serif and sans-serif doesn't work either. the underline
on the serif gif links is too close.

unlinked sections look odd, but you can't help that very easily when they're
trying to launch too early.

bottom right: 2 are linked. 2 are not. yet all look the same. i wondered if
i should be clicking or mousing over the little boxes for a few seconds...

could've done more with the frontdoor so that the second it loads, i know
what it's about. rather than having to read the links, etc. to me, nothing
really jumps out and says "music!".

waiting for navigation to animate/expand so that i know where to click is a
bit shitty. one nav item says "tours", but the alt text is "tour" (yeh,
that's picky, but i'm sure you appreciate that ;))

don't like the central alignment of footer nav, etc. looks very '4 years
ago'. large content text is good - suits the style, and pads things out when
content-levels are low.

content font usage is inconsistent. colour schemes are off.

very light on quality images. in 'stuff', it looks like you have some killer
source graphics (the snow ones) to work with. i guess you gotta separate
artist from label, but still - i would've been pestering them for permission
to use those...

too much variation in structure of various areas. feels like (despite being
on the one domain the entire time), i've visited 3 or more separate sites.
you might try arguing that it's important for the artist to be separate from
the label, but even within the ani sub-site, this jarring effect occurs.

it's not all bad. i'm just pointing out the not-wonderful bits. (you know
that, others might not).
