JANN ARDEN Happy? (A&M) If you’ve been whipped by love and need a cathartic tear-letting, sad-girl singer-songwriter Arden’s third album might be just the thing — especially if you like your pain to go down easy. As with Arden’s ’96 hit ”Insensitive,” her emotional grit tends to get smoothed over by radio-friendly arrangements. Happy? is best on sparer heart-tuggers like ”Holy Moses,” where Arden’s beautiful sob isn’t lost in the lushness. B
