Happy is not as good as the exceptional Living Under June but still a very enjoyable album that grows on you over time.

"Jann Arden released this album in 1997 in Canada. It might not have been as widely accepted as her breakthrough 1994 album LIVING UNDER JUNE but HAPPY? is still an album worth talking about. Sometimes I listen and I wonder if she has been inside my head, as she projects so many feelings and emotions I have had before. By far my favorite cut here is "Wishing That", a song I can deeply relate to, about the longing to have someone to love you, and the depths of which you would go to acheive that. "The Sound Of" is another great song, the album's first single, about one night stands. "Hangin' By A Thread" is another incredibly personal song for me here, she just delivers it so heartbreakingly. Same goes for "Weeds" and "To Sir With Love". Many find her music depressing, I think of it as real and just no holds barred. She sings from the depths of her soul and does not hold back. Other highlights include "Leave Me Now", "Saved", and more. If you liked any of her other albums, this is definately a safe bet."

"Best Tracks: Wishing That, Saved, Leave Me Now
There are artists that write best when they're (apparently) down. Jann may be one of those people.
If you're prone to slip in a CD about love-gone-wrong when you're life is down this CD should be on your shelf.
The good news is that even those the messages throughout this CD isn't necessarily one of hope, it's still a great album. And not one to get you down.
I really like this album. A solid score on this one. "
Excellent Story Teller!

"Very good content - excellent story teller type music. Ethereal, calming, and altogether totally enjoyable! Very talented song writing, and great musical adaptation."
