Here comes Jann Arden, jingling and jangling her way into your heart with a rich alto voice and a CD replete with rich, hook-laden music. Aaah, that voice. She's been compared to Heart's Ann Wilson, and it's a comparison that at once rings true, yet somehow doesn't quite do her justice. Arden, like Wilson, has power to spare. But she also has a knack for wrapping her voice around a tune, with a sensuous, subtle touch. Songs like "Demolition Love" highlight this ability. It's something you can't really learn. One moment powerful, the next little-girl lost, but always there's a sense of control, of knowing just how far to go with a melody.
Arden also has a knack with the pen, as she turns a wry line or two about physical pleasure--and its consequences--in "Insensitive." Her band on this disc is superb--there is some truly beautiful acoustic-guitar playing by Dave Resnik--and the production is immaculate.« less
