    self-indulgent

    Hi

    A musician says that the record they made was a little self-indulgent and he thought they might be pushing their audience too far.

    --- What is a similar word to "self-indulgent". If the record or their work on it was "self-indulgent", what was it really like?

    --- I suppose that "pushing audience too far" might mean that their fans would not understand it.

    thanks

    --- What is a similar word to "self-indulgent". = for their own entertainment

    If the record or their work on it was "self-indulgent", what was it really like? Don't know. Haven't heard it.

    --- I suppose that "pushing audience too far" might mean that their fans would not understand it. Exactly.

    thanks
