With Lana, I have no doubts that it is the latter. She was always an extraordinary chanteuse, with exquisite taste in choosing the finest lyrics, arrangements, and high thoughts. What a truly special person and performer. If you were a Cantrell fanatic, you remember her sweeping finishes, arms outstretched, the slight upsweep of the head flipping back her mod haircut, the little girl who could move between glamorous, sexy vamp, and upbeat child of the 60's, in the interval of a couple of songs. If you can listen to "Two for the Road" on this amazing collection of ballads without feeling an impossible mixture of inspiration and sadness, I'm sorry, you just don't get it.
