There are some good songs on this X-Files movie soundtrack, but there are really only three tracks that seem to evoke the X-Files mania in my blood: One’s Filter, Better Than Ezra’s One More Murder, and, just barely thanks to the crazy remix done by The Dust Brothers, The X-Files Theme. The other tracks really just don’t strike me as X-Files material. This is not to say I dislike the other tracks, though. I don’t really care for the Foo Fighters, but Walking After You is more than satisfactory to my ears. Ween’s Beacon Light, The Cardigans’ Deuce, and Soul Coughing’s 16 Horses are somewhat unusual yet positive introductions to bands I am unfamiliar with. I was happy to find a track from The Cure included on the soundtrack, although I prefer Robert Smith when he is more depressed and maudlin. Bjork’s music is particularly hard to describe; Hunter, a song you can certainly find elsewhere as well, is quite good, but I’m not sure how much Bjork I could stand at one time. Of course, with the good come the bad. I know nothing about X except for the fact that someone should tell her/them that Jim Morrison does not need any help singing classic Doors songs. Sting is always annoying to me, and his collaboration with Aswad on Invisible Sun is par for the course. Noel Gallagher’s Teotihuacan is nothing but music lasting an incredibly long seven minutes. If you let the last track keep playing, after several minutes of silence you will hear Chris Carter expound upon the X-Files mythology, which is a nice addition. Thus, this soundtrack is actually a pretty good one, offering a number of different types of music, but for the most part the album just isn’t dark and mysterious enough to put me in mind of The X-Files when I play it.
