The current interface between the icon bar and the top menu bar feel to separate and this really shows when switching to any other theme then the default.

The suggestion I have is to make the top bar just like the icon bar, being dark and semi translucent. Giving it the feel that both go together. Unifying them per se.

Here is my mockup idea.
