Is he ashamed of Pinkerton at the moment? i thought he thought it was good now.
Hugh's right. Cool thread, man.

Even in their isolated instances, the answer is pretty obvious.

 

Pinkerton was an extremely ballsy album, Rivers was 110% emotionally invested in it and then the fans, the band and critics all turned around and said "hey, we don't like this." Instead of saving the band from being labelled as some gimmicky one-hit wonder like he wanted, he just pushed the band into obscurity.

 

Raditude, on the other hand came straight off the production line of songs Rivers could write in a day. There's no emotional depth present and it's not like Rivers was risking anything with it's release. He'd already risked his integrity the second 'Don't Let Go' found our ears.

Agreed.

Pinkerton was, at first, a commercial failure. That pretty much dropped his level of confidence in his music making.

Now that it's such a fan favorite, and since he decided to play the whole album on tour, I'm sure he's fine with it now.

And he's not ashamed with Raditude because he enjoys collaborating with other musicians to create music that appeals to more people than just his general fanbase.

 

But that's just info. I've learned over the years from interviews he's done. Only Rivers himself can answer the question completely.

I dont think Raditude as a whole should be ashamed by anyone. The only songs that are embarrassing are I'm Your Daddy and Girl Got Hot really.
IN THE MALL!!!!!

But those two are among the better half of the album. CSP is the only one to be ashamed of.

The only one I don't really like is Love Is The Answer.

I like some parts of it, but the whole Hindi thing just isn't doing it for me.
