I think its just gorgeous.
Your image choice is wonderful. The UTP picture with all the glass and eggs has always been in my top 5 Tori images, I think the layout is pretty much perfect. The only critique I could even give is maybe moving the Home button around a bit because with the color the back end gets a little lost in her hair...but to be perfectly honest that's not even a big deal. Other than that I can't say much because its so nice the way it is. Simply using images from a era isn't the what makes it work so nicely. How its all put together really makes or breaks it. Your design is simple, clean, and crisp. I think your design embodies that time period very nicely. I know how long you've been working on this, I can't wait until its up and running and see the rest of what you've done!!

...and I agree with missing Cindy! That woman + Tori = Magic.

note Re: Tori Amos Discography / Collectibles Site upda

This is simply gorgeous, my dear. I know how long you have been working on this, and I am so excited for the site! I also miss Cindy Palmano, and seeing this beautiful layout you have so cleverly created, designed, and put your heart into brings back the magic of "old Tori" that I love -- it is refreshing to see a site layout incorporating more of the 90s era now because so many Tori sites today focus on whatever album is current. This is a collectable website, so I love the classic element you've chosen to focus on. I love the butterfly in the middle. This whole layout blends together quite fabulously. You are an amazing web designer and graphic artist. Much love.

Thank you so much mayfly, that means so much to me. I agree, Cindy's work was so perfect for the albums, with LE and UTP being simple and elegant, or in the case of BFP, raw and earthy....I miss her golden aesthetic touch a great deal.

Thank you my lovely SoulQuake! I swear you and I always have identical thoughts. The home button was #1 on my list to change (I'm going to shift it down and lighten the background behind it), cause I agree, it does totally get lost in her hair. And boy I love that hair lol. You are a rather spectacularly talented artist (and I truly mean that), so hearing your critique gave me a huge boost in my courage to continue with all this craziness. Thank you again! Much love.

Thank you, Veronica! That is very high praise, I hardly know what to say. What you're expressing was my hope, that even though this is primarily an information, content-based website, that investing in the designs would bring some a tiny bit of the magic of the albums to the user. I think I'm spending wayyy too much time on the design part, but I can't help it haha. Though right now I'm moving away from the designs and focusing in on the database, which holds all the content and will be the bread and butter of the site. When I started this more than a year ago, I created the LE and UTP layout, stopped, went crazy on coding/programming, and then did another flurry of design for a few months (which is part of what set me back), but now I'm ready to complete the database transfer of the old information to the new site, and start really updating the content properly. Comments like yours really help me continue since I often get discouraged that I'm not doing this fast enough...thanks to you and everyone for being so encouraging and wonderful.

This layout is WONDERFUL!

I actually think that this picture would've made a better album cover than the one we got.

Seriously, you have SUCH a tlent for this sort of thing!

Thank you everyone!! All this support means the absolute world to me. jennifer, White Roses Red, ThunderWishes and lzaltino, thank you for the kind, encouraging words. Everyone posting here is helping me more than they know. It's been a long road but I feel I'm making significant progress and am VERY excited for the day when I finally publish it! I'd hope to have an unveiling on January 1st but that might be too optimistic, it's very hard to gauge at the moment. That's what I'm striving for, anyhow!

And just FYI to everyone visiting the current www.toriamosdiscography.info, one reason it's in maintenance mode is the company I registered with in early 2010 has literally disappeared, so I'm transferring it to a new host. The place I registered the domain is fine, just the company who provided hosting services, their website and all support has mysteriously vanished. That's the danger you run into with free hosting services unfortunately...I will be transferring everything to a paid, reputable host very soon. Apologies for the delay.

Thanks everyone again!
