I agree. Personally, I think No Monsters in Me should have been on the album (which it was in Japan) and It Could Be You should have been a single (again, it was in Japan). And as unpopular as this view will sound, I can't stand Yuko and Hiro...

I've been listening to The Magic Whip (fabulous album) for a few weeks now before I listened to all of The Great Escape, so what I find intriguing about Yuko and Hiro is that it anticipates MW's Asian feel. (Yes, I know that Japan and China are distinct nations and people, but I still got a MW "vibe" from Y&H.)
