There are a few tracks I like on this album, but something has always bugged me about the credits spread I see on most sites, which credit the music to Dennis Martin and Takeo Miratsu.

Am I right in assuming that Dennis Martin's work goes only as far as the main theme "If You Still Believe" and that the remaining tracks that play during gameplay are done by Takeo Miratsu? It seems unlikely to me that a Japanese and American composer would collaborate on the bulk of the material due to the language barrier.

D: You also worked with an additional composer, Takeo Miratsu, did you not? What was that like? Since the work essentially was split, how much of the music were you assigned to do?
DM: Believe it or not, I have never met Mr. Miratsu. The game was so large (4 CDs) that for me to do it all by myself, which was the original plan, was not realistic. I am not sure what the split is but I think that I did about 70% or so of the music. It also gave them the opportunity to have a composer close at hand, since Mr. Miratsu lives in Japan. Our styles are definitely different. I guess it gave some them some additional colors to work with.
