Here's a screenshot
Here's the theme

If you notice on the screenshot the File Explorer in particular looks very weird, there's a lot of white text where there shouldn't be and things seem off.
If anyone has an idea why, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Edit: here's what it looks like with a different theme: http://i.imgur.com/j4Ypu.png

I guess (!) it has to do with the fact that you use a gtk3 theme, it says you need Adwaita:
sudo apt-get install gnome-themes-standard sudo apt-get install gtk3-engines-unico
(the latter is a wild guess, but there are only two gtk3 engines in the repos, the other one being Oxygen)
This should fix it, hopefully

Thanks for the responses!
Unfortunately I've already installed both of those packages and I'm still having the same issue. Perhaps I'm applying the theme improperly?
I've got the following file structure for the theme:
I've got the Albatross theme currently installed, that one works fine.
I'm applying my themes using 'LXAppearance 0.5.1'
@wetdirtmud: That's the proper way, lxappearance, yes. Did you install other custom themes maybe before?
@VastOne: Off-topic: Am I blind or does wetdirtmud have two posts and only one is shown in his counter?
haha, a BUG

fwiw - the screeshot looks like what gtk comes up with when it can't find the theme specified or when the theme is faulty and gtk can't read it.
so, apart from a typo somewhere it could also be that you extracted the folder to the right place and applied it with lxappearance, but the gtkrc files have wrong permissions set. has happened to me, swear to god!
of course it could be 10 other things; but i recognize the distinctive non-look.
