Boy, I'd hate to think that I'd have to actually go to the "great beyond" to find out for sure. Thank Goodness I don't have to, I can stay right here and listen to her terrific music right here on earth.
She (Ms. Arden) grabs your attention from the very first song, "Can I Be Your Girl", and she then proceeds to take you for a total musical experience that you soon won't forget.
Her melodic haunting vocal phrasing, and the deep heartfelt emotional delivery on her other songs like "Demolition Love", "Insensitive", "Gasoline", and "Wonderdrug" left me speechless, but clearly humming her songs for days.
The pure musical enjoyment that I got from this album ("Living Under June") has lead me to purchase several more of Ms. Arden' CD's.
For the record, she has had me "in her grasp" as a big fan ever since I first heard her music seven years ago, and I know that you'll enjoy this CD just as much as I did. Be prepared to be a loyal Jann Arden devotee.
It is "very rare" to find a singer/songwriter that one looks forward to their next release. Jann is one of them. Her voice, style and presentation would be difficult to immitate so there is no one I can compare her to. Her voice is emotive, clear and full on all songs on this album. It is a solid recording effort.
"I Would Die For You" - is a heart tugging song that speaks of total committment of the love many yearn for all their lives. It's makes you wanna go out and find that person you were head over heels for and tell them your feelings.
"Could I Be Your Girl" - Haven't you ever wanted to ask someone you liked that? I have. This song is upbeat and catchy and I love the demon aspect of love coming after you. "Love is a demon and your the one he's coming for. Oh my lord!" The 'so bad' 'so good' sides of this song are so seductive and Jann sings it that way.
"Looking for It" (Finding Heaven) - shows a spiritual side to Jann's personality as she searches for meaning within her self dialog. "Oh I am looking for it. I am looking for myself". It fits so well with the album.
"Gasoline" and "Wonderdrug" - are her more evocative side. Go Jann!
"Living Under June" - is a scream! Ever have an experience like that?Read more ›
Jann Arden is amazing. A great writer, singer, a hilarious person and not the least bit stuckup and dominated by the fame drug. And who the heck cares how much she weighs? Good grief!! I think she looks great, she rocks and by the way, have you seen those anorexic sick-looking models out there? Need I say more?? Jann has proven that good singing and songwriting always ends up prevailing over the Britney/boy-band antics, which will wash up in the next 5 years. And she doesn't have to be look like Britney to have success. Go Jann!!
Living Under June is a brilliant piece of work. Insensitive gives it the commercial single (but I always "listen" beyond that fact -- Jann does a great job of the song, and the live version from "Greatest Hurts" is even better). "Unloved" broke my heart. "Wonderdrug" rocks. "Could I Be Your Girl" is so cleverly written (I love the lines "Love is a demon and you're the one he's coming for" and "Write a letter to yourself, no one will ever know....tell them all about the girl who just refused to fall........oh my Lord"). Good stuff. All the songs are strong and there are no mindless filler-in songs on this album. But my personal favorite is "Good Mother". What a brillant, captivating and inspiring song. Buy this CD and happy listening! :)
Fashion industry madness aside, Jann Arden is a beautiful woman and superb singer/songwriter, and Living Under June is probably her best album out of a very impressive bunch. If I had to pick out my favourite song, it would probably be Good Mother, which also has a stunningly beautiful video. Still, this is an entire album of great songs - Could I Be Your Girl, Wonderdrug, the title track, and so on...
To top it all off, Jann also has the most wicked sense of humour. While advertising her utterly brilliant Greatest Hurts album, she announced that disastrous relationships had made her a very wealthy woman. Still haven't caught her on tour yet, but I'll be working on it.
Good job, ma'am.

This CD is in my personal all time top 10. Although some may think her lyrical content is too melancholy, I would strongly argue that point. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Douglas
For me, this is Jann's best overall album and it's a classic imo.
There are so many great songs on this album: "Could I Be Your Girl", "Wonderdrug", "Living Under June"... Read more
What a superb album this is. It is filled with memorable and enjoyable songs. "Insensitive" is the song everyone has heard, but this isn't the best song on the album. Read morePublished on Nov. 11 2006 by Brian loves music

"Living Under June" is an excellent, honest production from a Canadian artist that has not yet gotten the attention she should have south of the Canadain/American border. Read morePublished on Nov. 17 2002
Jann Arden has about the best vocal pipes in the business. I've seen her sing the songs on this CD live and she's the vocal queen of heartache! Read morePublished on Sept. 7 2002 by Donald D'Haene
