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.

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

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.

I don't know that there's more to say than the title - the tracks on this CD are nearly all haunting, fitting background music for creeping around the supernatural. Listen to some samples from this CD if you need help deciding. This isn't like classical music, and will not provide many surprises.

The X Files has great music but this CD ruins it all by using weird voice overs and snippets making the whole music experience dire. This CD went straight to Oxfam after one painful play through.
