This is a daring single edit of one of the tracks of The Delgados latest album 'The Great Eastern'. The singer basically can't sing, but that's the strong point about this track. There is no embarrassment when you sing along with 'No Danger' by yourself. You'll fall for the charm of it anyhow. It will be ironic if this single outsells The Delgados previous, and much better sung, attempts at Top of the Pops immortality. "The Great Eastern" may be one of the best indie pop albums of the year, but, however, has had no impact on the album charts, 'No Danger' though could go top 20 though I reckon. I can't help grinning when the chorus comes on ("Now We're Singing Out of Tune"), then a school choir broadens The Delgados' horizon and a very tight piano and string arrangement do the rest. This is a very cool way of beating the charts by its own criteria.



Track Listing:-
1 No Danger (Kids Choir)
2 The Choices You've Made
3 Don't Sleep
