Product Description


After a couple of attempts to put music from The X-Files on shelves, this is the first time it can be said to have been done with any authenticity. There's an entire 31-minute suite selected by the composer, and performed by John Beal. What fans will hopefully realise from hearing this is that it's the least involving of his work. Mark Snow has been writing bigger and better for years. For instance, his Conundrum, with solo female voice, is delightful. As is the deconstruction of the Basic Instinct theme for Seduced And Betrayed. These two pieces come under the album's "Darkness and Desire" heading. They're followed by "Love and Hope", and some bravely included "Bonus Tracks": the wacky, sped-up vocal samples of Pee-Wee's Playhouse would not be most people's choice to close a disc! If you've ever wondered how one guy could write everything for two shows (X-Files and Millennium), and have time over for TV movies, the answer's given here in one word--talent. --Paul Tonks

3.0 out of 5 stars a bit cheesed,but still trippy 13 Jun. 2004
By Trottin'-Butterz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
for the most part this compilation of snow's scores from tv series/tv movies is very good,but there are some tracks where the keyboard cheese goes a little too far on the tracks that are supposed to be serious.it's still a great buy for snow and xfile fans alike,(there is an awesome half-hour long reworking of the xfile music meant to play like an episode that is trippy as hell!)but if you're not obsessive about it like myself I couldn't see paying more than $5 for it.(I found it for $2.50-and I find that a pretty good deal these days!)the songs meant to be goofy are my favs-the song from the pee wee tv show is the one they played when the claymation food came out the fridge,and snow's turned-down theme for the max headroom show is so 80's in that nutty way!it just sucks that 3 or 4 of the "serious" themes kinda go awry all of a sudden,but oh well.and what's up with the millenium theme going m.i.a.?I always thought that was snow's best work to date.

3.0 out of 5 stars Arghhhhhh.... 23 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong, a lot of the music on this CD is great. But the main reason I bought this CD was because I was on a flight to London when I heard an absolutely haunting rendition of The X-Files theme on the in-flight music selection. I checked out the in-flight magazine, and it said that they were using tracks from The Snow Files. So I ordered the CD and--to my horror--discovered that the absolutely haunting rendition of the theme is not on the CD. I'm going to write letters to Sonic Images and try and find out where I can find that piece instead. But if you were on a United flight to London recently, and you're looking for that X-Files theme, you won't find it on this CD.
, and one of the music channels on the flight was playing a couple of tracks of Mark Snow

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say? Another great product thanks to Mark Snow 19 Nov. 1999
By The X-Files Merchandise Specialist (xfmerch@hotmail.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I actualy think that Mark Snow is underrated as being one of the key attributes to the success of The X-Files. Imagine watching an episode without his contribution of dark, tense atmospheric music, or the kind of grandeur themes we saw in The X-Files' feature film "Fight The Future". For all fans of Mark Snow, namely X-Philes - who are unmistakeably the core of his audience - this CD is for you. The track "X-Files Suite" which plays for thirty minutes is an ensemble from various scores from various episodes of The X-Files, namely the first three seasons. It cannot be denied, however, that it is unfortuante that in this latest piece there is none of the great X-Files scores from episodes such as season four's "Memento Mori", or "Gethsemane" (my favourite snippet of Mark Snow's music ever - when Scully stops Kritcsgau in her car and chases after him. Check it out, then email me with what you think!), as well as some of the themes from season five and six. But in time, maybe even when the show is gone forever (after all, this may be the final season), the rest of these tracks will surface. But fans of The X-Files should take this new CD of Snow's for what it is, as it is definanately a must have for X-Philes. But what's even better about this CD is that it isn't JUST for X-Files fans - many have enjoyed Snow's work from other projects such as 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Disturbing Behaviour, and La Femme Nikita. All of these tracks are worthy of a mention. In summary, this CD is for all. Whether you are a fan of The X-Files, an admirer of the show - or just someone who has never heard this remarkable man's music before - then THE SNOW FILES is for you.
Go on, what are you waiting for? Why aren't you racing down to your local music store to pick up a copy!

4.0 out of 5 stars First VR5, now this? Who do I think I am? 16 May 2000
By sci f. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I read the reviews, but I am a big fan of The X Files, Millennium, and La Femme Nikita. Although there is no Millennium soundtrack, I am hopeful. This compellation is beautiful. Not as powerful as The X Files: Fight the Future original motion picture score, but it does have some beautiful pieces. I can recommend it, but not for those who prefer energy and emotion to Classical Fusion. (I don't know what else to call it.) The last two tracks are Max Headroom and Pee Wee Herman. The less said about what could have possibly possessed them to add the latter, the better. (In the words of Stan Marsh of South Park: "Dude, this is pretty f***ed up right here.") I am a Cyberpunk and Max Headroom is right up my alley. However, they did chose an unusual track to include. The full-blown La Femme Nikita cut opens the CD, grabs you by the "you know what" and keeps you listening for the next six tracks. Then you find yourself having X Files flashbacks for the next four, and even if you're not an X Phile you begin to glance to the doors and windows remarking on the shadows and sounds you suddenly imagine. Not frightened or edgy, just something you never noticed before. When all else falls silent and the only sound you hear comes from the CD player like a heartbeat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over James Horner!!! 23 May 1999
By Diane B. Firstman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I used to believe James Horner was my favorite composer of film music/scores, but I'm quickly turning my affection towards Mark Snow. One of the things that I love about "The X Files" is Snow's music ... haunting, ethereal, otherworldly. That and the lighting/photography add SO much more to an already wonderful show.
But back to this CD. I didn't know Snow had such a long career to this point. It was a pleasant surprise to listen to his other works, and find his "signature" all over them, regardless of the genre.
The highlight among highlights was of course, the Suite from The X Files. It brilliantly captures the many moods that develop in a single episode. The last two and one-half minutes of piano music are awe-inspiring ... they give me chills and bring me near tears every time, even after repeated listenings.
Bravo to Mark Snow and his able assistant, John Beal!
