Might be nice to get some ideas on layouts for:

- Reviews
- Metal Genres
- Best-of lists
- About pages

The best-of lists especially look crappy. Laziness on my part, admittedly...

*Bigger album art
*User comments
*Connectivity for related bands, like if I am reading a review for an Immortal album, the site should also recommend Abbath's solo albums

I’m going to try 250x250 (instead of 160x160) starting today (for new reviews anyway) starting today, just to see how that looks like.

For the connectivity thing, while from a technical standpoint it’s not really hard, I think it could be difficult from a manpower (personpower? :D) perspective to maintain this. Don’t know if anyone has suggestions about that aspect of the thing...?

I actually like the best of lists the way they are. Super easy to navigate, quick, simple, and functional. Maybe you could add a link at the top that automatically goes to each viewers section on the list (like the metal genres page)..

Whatever you do, please don't do a slideshow like this: http://loudwire.com/top-doom-metal-albums/

I find them tedious and slow to navigate.


Metal genres - I'd have each genre broken into its own page, throw some pics in there, maybe get a little more detailed. Honestly, it looks good as is, i think the text just needs formatted a little bit better. Its kind of one big wall of text, and the "sections" don't really stand out.

I do like the bigger album art in the reviews.  I think it looks a lot better.
