This old theme is useful in that it shows us that even a good, fast host can make an old cranky theme run fast.  Check out those scores!

This theme is getting a bit dated, created originally for a band or music styled website, for looks, not so much for functionality.  That’s probably why it’s no longer for sale.

These reviews are not all about the themes though.  It’s also about where the themes work the fastest…
