Can anyone elaborate on Shimomura's composition in this soundtrack? On the back booklet, it states:
"Parasite Eve" original music composed by YOKO SHIMOMURA

which makes me wonder if there were some tracks done by Shimomura but also the fact right at the top it also says that all the music composed, arranged and produced is by NAOSHI MIZUTA.

edit: explained in parent notes, now that I looked. I guess there is no breakdown for which tracks, though

I think the distinction they're making here is that Yoko Shimomura composed the music for the first Parasite Eve game. This game possibly features some music from the first game and they're giving her the composition credit (even though if this is the case, Naoshi Mizuta probably arranged them).

Naoshi Mizuta was the sole composer of the score. However, he did include several arrangements from Yoko Shimomura's Parasite Eve score, such as Theme for Aya and Mist, most of them made by himself. This sort of information is widely known and has been reported in various news, interviews, and encyclopedia articles.
