    Derek,

    Over all I think the site is quite nicely done. But, there are a couple things I noticed that you might look at.
    1) The load time was a little slow - just to the point where I started to get antsy - if I was surfing I might have hit the back button.
    2) I do have a problem with your sign-up box on the lower right side of the home page. My question is sign up for What?? Only after following the link did I know what I was signing up for...I question how many people would follow the link without being told what they were signing up for.
    3) The third is more then likely just a quirk of mine more then anything else, but for some reason I find the right hand edge of the Casino graphic at the top hanging out past the rest of the page distracting. Probably just me, as I say.

    Good luck on your endeavor.

    The site took forever to load on with my puny 28.8 modem. Like the previous reviewer said, it made me almost hit the \"stop\" button. I would recommend looking into ways to speed the site up just a bit.

    I viewed the page in 800x600 with IE5, and it looked fine.

    Perhaps you might want to put in more news headlines, more ads, or some text on the left side of the page to fill in the ominous blank space. I see you use MoreOver for your news, so surely you could increase it to 15 or so headlines.

    I really, really, really didn\'t like the fact that you frame the outside links. Making them pop up in a new window is good enough, but putting them in a frame isn\'t really smiled upon anymore.

    You also have two banner ads: one at the top, and one at the bottom. I would suggest getting rid of the bottom one, since it is just adding to your load time and probably not making you very much more money. If you don\'t remove it, at least center it to make it look right.

    Other than my nitpickings, you have a great looking site, I like the color scheme, and you have done a good job putting in content and links.

    Thanks for allowing me to review you,

    looks like a real professional website..:

    - loading time is a bit slow, i use a t1 connection
    - i like the content you offer, but i hate pop ups and your news section is pop-ups only...may be you should frame the news ?

    but overall a very cool page, will bookmark it,

    Hey,

    What a great site. The design is good. Don\'t know how to give you negative comments. However, if you can add a forum/message b oard for visitors to discuss songs. It will make your site sticky.

    Hi,
    Realy nice site, exspecialy the logo! The ownly thing that I would change would be to make the text for the news links black(not light blue) and put a black outline all around the login box. A message board would be nice to like addto said.

    Good Job
