Yes, I listened to the theme and found it not perfect. But know what? It 
was NOT supposed to be perfect... the "release early, release often" 
mantra in FOSS is exactly that, put your work in the open as soon as 
possible so other can play with it, comment or contribute.
How can the author improve his work without our feedback, knowing which 
parts are good and which suck?

And I think we failed at this step: giving feedback to Chris work and 
not encouraging him to continue and improve it.

What can I say more? You can't have your cake and eat it too, when 
Lennart asked publicly for as many as possible sound themes, it was 
expected some themes will be better and other worse, with the most of 
them worse at first, until the creators grow in experience - nobody is 
born as a master in putting together XDG sound themes.
