Is this a safe website?

Ive been looking for the song "In the Arms of the Angels" by Sarah McLaughlin. I found it as a free download at
I'm afraid to use this sight since I don't know anything about it. Is it safe, or am I going to end up with a virus?
Any help appreciated - If you know of any other source for this song let me know. I would pay for it if it is on a CD somewhere.

They do not host the music...

They simply link to downloads available on other websites which they do not control. Thus, the question of safety is up in the air. However, it's doubtful that it is a legal download, authorized by Sarah McLaughlin, so I would either buy the CD or purchase the individual song from Rhapsody, iTunes, etc.

Is called Angel and it's off of her Surfacing album. You can get it as an mp3 download for 99 cents (if you're in the United States) at Amazon's mp3 downloads store. You don't even have to download software, although they kind of make it look like you do. You only have to d/l the Amazon mp3 downloader if you want to purchase whole albums.
