Can I get a witness? All Music Guide's new format is the design equivalent of New Coke or the Chevy Nova (aka "no go" en espanol). Not only is it incredibly inefficient with its new, tab-oriented layout, but this registration requirement doesn't auto-login in some browsers (Safari for example) and even when you do, it bumps you back to the homepage rather than allowing you to continue from where you left off.


Seriously, someone at AMG should have remembered the old adage of "if it ain't broke..." I don't mind registering and logging in if that means everything will run more efficiently but instead of making navigation easier, AMG has managed to make it much, much more trouble. As someone who probably uses the site at least once per day, it's just a huge hassle and frankly, if someone comes out with an alternative database, I'll switch over in a heartbeat.
