In my experience, most band websites are usually either very over-the-top or very lame. For a very long time, Pearl Jam's website was no exception (as it fell into the latter court). However, I read over at The Sky I Scrape tonight that their website has been redesigned. Oh, and what a redesign it is! Not only is it very aesthetically pleasing, but it validates as XHTML 1.0 and they've even got a feed now (sweeeeeeeeeeeet). On top of all that, they've implemented (and when I say "they," I mean Brad Klausen and Levity and not the band) a pretty cool feature called "Reveal Background" that hides all the website's UI elements and shows only the background image. And as if that wasn't enough, the site's also been implemented using PHP.

Pretty darn cool.

Yeh! I know i love the new design... I'm trying to figure out how they did that "reveal background" function. I'm trying to figure out how they did it. Would love to implement it on my own blog
