Default Borderline album - thoughts on inclusion

So I've got this album that I can definitely see some objections to including. Wanted to get some thoughts on it before actually adding it.

The album is the soundtrack to the live-action film Minato no Roxy/Roxy on the Bay. I know we've got anime soundtracks done by game composers in here already, so that's not the problem in and of itself.

The problem is that only one of the sixteen tracks on the album was actually done by VGM artists (specifically, the Love-de-Lic supergroup of Konami sound staffers THELONIOUS MONKEES). All the rest are done by various people we wouldn't concern ourselves with at VGMdb.

So, thoughts on whether I should add this or not? Does having one track by VGM duders make it fair game? The alternative would be to just make a note of it in the biography field for the group.

I'd say just mentioning it in the Bio field is good enough

If it were some J-pop group with the single-track credit, I probably wouldn't add the album. However, since the group THELONIOUS MONKEES is so closely tied to VGM, I think it would probably be of interest.
