Daily Dose of Disdain
Widely acclaimed as Browne's best work. I rank it as co-equal with ROE, and For Everyman is close behind. Although I don't find his recent albums as fulfilling as his early work, he still has moments and has produced a fair number of late-career gems.
Yes, this is a beautiful, sad tune about modern isolation and failed dreams. Browne's recent stuff is too political -- I think he likes the Latin American version of socialism/communism. Like most other megastars, Browne's ego is involved and due to his cadre of sycophants, he thinks he's a genius but the thing is, he lives in an echo chamber. You know, we can say the same thing about most people, even ourselves.
