Album informationEdit

Production on Dangerous and Moving spanned from Los Angeles to London and Moscow. There were two notable recording sessions with the record's producer, Sergio Galoyan. The first took place in Moscow between 4 and 20 August 2004 with just Lena, producing songs like "Cosmos", "Sacrifice" (one demo featuring Claire Guy) and demos "All My Love" (an English counterpart to "Вся моя любовь"), "I Know", "One Love" and "You". The second recording session took place from 17 January to 18 April 2005 in Los Angeles with "Sacrifice", "Perfect Enemy" and the demo of "We Shout" (titled "Reach Out") also sung by Lena. Yulia was not present during the recording sessions due to her pregnancy.

Other demo versions of the songs are available online, such as "All About Us" (performed by The Veronicas), "Sacrifice" (with both Yulia and Lena), "Perfect Enemy" (recorded by Claire Guy and sometimes referred to as "Wrap It Up"), and "Обезьянка ноль".

Although Sting, Dave Stewart, Richard Carpenter, The Veronicas and Claire Guy did work on the album, they did not actually meet the girls for production. Sergio Galoyan became a liaison for the production. However, Richard Carpenter did meet the girls after the recording of the album at their video shoot for the single Friend or Foe. The video was shot on location at Bronson Cave in Hollywood, directed by James Cox, while the executive producer was Grant Cihlar for 1171 Production Group. According to the booklet, the album was recorded at eight different recording studios. The album cover photography and design was made by their own music group, TA Music.

There are only two shared tracks between both releases:

  • "All About Us"
  • "Loves Me Not"

Five tracks are Russian/English counterparts:

  • "Обезьянка ноль" / "Null and Void" (featured later on the compilation album The Best)
  • "Люди-инвалиды" / "Dangerous And Moving"
  • "Космос" / "Cosmos (Outer Space)"
  • "Ничья" / "We Shout"
  • "Новая модель" / "Perfect Enemy"

On this album, "Loves Me Not" has different music than the version on the Russian album counterpart Люди-инвалиды. This is not a remix—it is the same single featuring a more pop arrangement for the international market versus a more electronic arrangement for the Russian market. An English version of "Вся моя любовь" was never officially released despite the demo recording. The girls sing an extra verse in "Cosmos (Outer Space)" after the second chorus; in "Космос", this is an instrumental break with no lyrics.
