Product Description

This collection of crisp electronic music mixed with bits of character dialogue will well please X-Files fans; those unfamiliar with the long-running sci-fi show have a chance to discover just how well an intensely eerie television score can stand on its own. Soundtrack master Mark Snow has done other scores for TV, but the X-Files is his most outstanding work. Right off the bat this CD transports you into the world of agents Mulder and Scully and the supernatural or extraterrestrial mysteries they uncover. The haunting, melodious whistle theme; the slow-moving walls of melancholy electronica; the ominous, urgent rhythms written for action scenes all recall the dark, spooky atmosphere that the X-Files program has so expertly created and maintained. There's also an ocean of dialogue to explore here, which for some may be distracting, but for others will bring back the suspenseful and sometimes horrific images from particular episodes. Overall, the dialogue is presented in a subdued enough way that it doesn't stand out oddly and oftentimes just reinforces the creepy intrigue that is the show's most wonderful quality. Recommended. --Karen Karleski

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly evocative music from The X-Files 6 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
The music of Mark Snow helped make The X-Files one of the most engaging, remarkable shows in television history, yet it is easy to overlook the importance of the show’s consistently amazing weekly score, what with all of the intrigues and dark mysteries challenging Agents Mulder and Scully. With this album, one gets the chance to concentrate on the music in and of itself, albeit laced with numerous bits of dialogue, and the true power of Snow’s genius is impossible to dismiss or ignore. I’m quite out of my element when it comes to discussing this music; I suppose it is best classified as electronic music with all sorts of funky nuances I won’t even attempt to describe because nothing I could say would truly do them justice. These tracks are actual pieces used in The X-Files over the course of its first two seasons, and so it should come as no real surprise that their exceptional ethereal quality easily transports one’s imagination into the cryptic world haunted by the indefatigable Agent Mulder and his faithful friend and loyal partner Agent Scully. This album is amazingly evocative of the television show I and so many others became much more than addicted to. Proof of my addiction is the fact I bought this album; generally, I dislike music without singing. This, however, is much more than a musical score; it is undeniably X-Files in its very nature, and as such I really and truly enjoy listening to it. It’s not something I pop in the CD player on a regular basis, but it is just what the doctor ordered when I am in a certain dark yet inquisitive mood and could well serve as excellent music to study by. You don’t even have to listen to this album; all you have to do is sit back, relax, and let Mark Snow’s musical score transport you on a trip of imagination colored by haunting, cosmic dissonance to a world where truth is no longer out there somewhere but is instead inside your very head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic 1 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
When I listened to this CD I felt so nostalgic about the TV Serie. It's a moving compilation with the best quotes of The x files. Great for listening at night, it's quite relaxing, and sometimes spooky. :D

4.0 out of 5 stars the x-files rock! 25 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Very good compilation of soundtracks from the excellent series. I liked this one better than another x-files music cd which I had purchased before. Only thing is the talking in between tracks, may not be to everyone's taste, but I still liked the tracks. CD in good condition and sent within the time specified.
