I love the X Files. It's a fantastic series with so many enduring, iconic aspects it's impossible to ignore. I was give this album as a 10 year old mega fan of Mulder and Scully, and it was played heavily for a good few years. Many dark nights were spent with headphones pressed into my ears as the Foo Fighters superb cover of Gary Numan's 'Down in the Park' howled images of Mud Men into my fertile imagination. Sheryl Crow's 'On the Outside' is beautifully melancholic and is also impossible to not associate with the anaemic looking alien pressed up against the window on the back cover art of the CD.
The album does have its flatter moments, but as a piece of aural nostalgia with a definite sound of all things weird in the universe, it's great fun. Excellent cover art seals the deal.
The great variety of songs here means two things: there is something for everyone here, but every individual will also undoubtedly have a few tracks he/she doesn't particularly care for. Sheryl Crow's On the Outside is a perfectly good song, but it doesn't seem to fit here in my opinion. Elvis Costello's My Dark Life has potential but never succeeds in grabbing my attention. Star Me Kitten from William S. Burroughs & R.E.M. is just strange and almost unexplainable (it also is the primary reason for the Explicit Lyrics sticker on the cover). The big mystery here for me, though, is P.M. Dawn. Not only does their song If You Never Say Goodbye seem out of place, their remix of Mark Snow's excellent X-Files Theme is quite unnecessary given the greatness of Mark Snow's original version that starts this CD off with a bang.
You don't have to be an X-Files fan to enjoy this CD, but fans will have much more appreciation of the ingenuity and creative track selection that went into this album. The liner notes feature some perfectly odd artist drawings of X-Files characters and scenes as well as statements about the album from X-Files bigwigs Chris Carter and David Was. One should not think this album was released just to make money off of the hot X-Files name; there is a lot of quality music here that one might not ever have the chance to discover on one's own.
