Well, this is my first advanced critique here on DA. And a pleasure, I'm doing it for one of your skins.

Preview: As usual phantastic work here! I know, you spend a lot of time in creating your previews. Amazing presentation!

Installation: Not much to say here, because the .cskin file (which I miss in most new skins) does its job here.
You provided the necessary fonts (Great!). A good and informative solution to install the right resolution skin follows. <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/t/t…" width="15" height="15" alt=":thumbsup:" title="Thumbs Up" />

First appearance: When I have chosen my style, the skin starts without the panel. All visible parts are self-explanatory here. Except the "+i" icon. Maybe you should have told in the preview or the description, that it reveals the animated panel. On the other hand, it's a surprising effect, when you click it and the animation starts. Just wanted to mention it, because I noticed that not every user discovers such features.

Design: You both chose a minimalistic style which is fine and offers max clarity. Transparency is too high here in my opinion. And because you did the corresponding graphics this way, there is no room to change transparency in the skin editor.
The skin and all of its elements appear very clean. I like the large time display and the textinformation next to it, just as I like the toolbar and the progressbar beneath.
The animation (which is absolutely smooth!) and the revealing cover graphic is a class of its own. Perfectly done! <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/n/n…" width="15" height="15" alt=":nod:" title="Nod" />
In my opinion, you could have altered the font size on the larger resolution styles. Especially because there is a lot of unused space left in the middle of the skin. The title "Satellite (Live in Hammersmith" for example, starts to scroll. In consideration of the width of the styles, that shouldn't be necessary. Also the informations on the right side aren't readable very good (at least for me on 1920x1200). <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";-)" title=";-) (Wink)" />
You followed the minimal style with your nocover.png (...) and I must say it looks very good. I must confess, less is more sometimes. <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />

All in all, this is a very good skin, which I truly like. Most of my so called "Critique" is a matter of taste. Other users may have a completely different opinion here...
