I'm working on a website and it seems that the main navigation menu isn't up to par. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about it just makes it not very nice or good looking.
It may be due to the menu background images just appearing with the links on them. Because of this I thought it'd be a good idea to try and implement some sort of fade in on the images, but if I did that the links (text) would appear before the background.
Basically, I feel stuck and am just looking for a way to make my nav menu look nicer, whatever that entails. Something about it just seems off.
If anyone could take a look and provide some input or ideas, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks a ton!
