The sound files alone really stand out in this one. Crystal clear yet soft mellow acoustic guitar sounds couldn't be more fitting with this particular setting. The desktop icons are cutout type masks that look great at any resolution. A well matched color scheme, a few new animated cursors, nicely crafted web view images and system logos make this a nice theme for any Sarah and Jareth movie fan.

The wallpaper is only for 800x600 pixel display sizes and the "Hot Wax Coating" filter doesn't do much for clarity. Either way, a larger wallpaper size for at least 1024x768 display sizes should be included. Most users wouldn't notice but if you look at the raw theme code, you'll see that a number of shell icons are referenced but not included. Even if they were, it's all hard coded to load them directly from a specific drive letter location. All but two of the cursors are the standard 3D type and a screen saver is not included.

Don't worry, none of the cons in this review will interfere with the installation or usage unless you have a larger display size. However, the code is the best place to start if you want to see just how professional a theme artist goes with their creations. With that in mind, this package looks and sounds great but a little more attention to detail would make it even better.
