    Excellent list. Usually a ‘top free wordpress themes’ post will consist of countless outdated designs that you would not go near with a proverbial. Here you seemed to have genuinely picked out the best. NewWPthemes looks interesting, but all a bit too good to be true?

  5. Ray says

    Wonderful and amazing themes you got there especially the last one. I kind’a like it because of its grayscale design. Hmmm. been planning to create something like it from scratch.

    I’ve visited a few free wordpress themes and found some great themes too. Here it is http://ping.fm/zGvYS

    I hope you’ll add some of this on your list.

    By the way, I’m tweeting this post and shared it…
    Thanks a lot..
