Further muddling things is a sincere-sounding rallying cry for high self-esteem that clearly doubles as an extended masturbation reference ("Touch Yrself").
Total Slacker's sense of humor is the album's driving force, and it's both overt and weirdly specific.
The lyrics, for the most part, are a goofy celebration of the slacker caricature.
And the title "Stealing From Salvation Army" says it all-- he plans on doing just that after he wakes up in the afternoon. largely depends on buying into that character and thinking it's funny, or at least interesting, for 40 minutes.
At first, it works-- the aesthetic is clearly defined, and the jokey tone of each track functions as a cohesive statement.
But if you take a moment to recall a successful record in the shoegaze canon, crumbles quickly.
