I've done some hardcore testing and I'll list my exact steps to reproduce what I see: 1: Visit allmusic.com site 2: enter Pearl Jam in query box at top (leave dropdown as default "name") and press enter to vew search results 3: Notice search results are formatted incorrectly. Column headers are in correct place, however data is not formatted under proper column.. "Relevance" bar does not display... 4: Clicking first entry "Pearl Jam" brings up the proper page. 5: Left hand column overlaps center column. 6: clicking discography tab, left and center are now properly aligned, but hovering over a release does not elicit the desired drop-down with album cover art, best songs, etc.. also column headers for releases are incorrectly aligned. I have left comments for the allmusic crew, time will tell if they reply. User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040707 Seaunicorn/0.9.2 (Firefox/0.9.2 polymorph)

Ugliest. Redesign. Ever. Confirming. There is a warning, and many pages lay out very improperly. I don't know what the guidelines for severity are on evang bugs, but it's certainly not "normal", given what a huge/popular/unique resource allmusic is, so I'm bumping it up one, at least.
Severity: normal → major
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: PC → All
Summary: allmusic.com - Tells users that MSIE 5.5/Win is recommended; Moz is not → allmusic.com - Prominently tells users that MSIE 5.5/Win is recommended; lays out wrong
Good news: it's getting better :-) The first thing you notice is that the message about AMG being optimized for IE has disappeared from the site. Now there's a link on the main page that leads to "Updates and responses to your feedback", where you can read that "(...) we had to pick the most widely used browser by our users (over 87%) to optimize the site for and then work on compatibility issues with the other major browsers as we go forward. We are concentrating on making the site more accessible through Opera, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari. We know how important it is to our users and we’re moving quickly." But the best thing is that they've already fixed a few things. The main page still looks bad, but, following the steps-to-reproduce: 3. The search results are now formatted correctly and the "Relevance" bar is displayed and 6. The discography page was also fixed and everything is looking fine. Yaaaay! :-)
Resolving, it's been fixed for a while and I only just noticed it in my bug pile.
