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.

Initially I didn't see much of a connection between these songs and the movie, but I suppose if you look hard enough it's there. Anyway, as far as the bands here, it's mostly good. "X" covers a "Doors" song, and "Filter" does a good cover. The "Cure" track "More Than This", isn't the "RoXy Music" song, but it's still good. The "Foo Fighters" and "Bjork" songs are good, but old. I never cared much for "Better Than Ezra", but they have one of the better tracks here. The only song I don't like is the "Invisible Sun" remake, it just doesn't belong. Overall, it's just another soundtrack of random alt-rock bands, that isn't bad, it's just not eXceptional, or eXciting, or eXcellent.

I have been an extreme, obsessed X-Files fan since 1997 (I was only 8 when the show debuted, and it frightened me. It took me a while to catch up.) I got the Fight the Future disc the summer the movie came out, and I loved it, as I still do. Some have said it is too random and doesn't fit the show/movie. They are quite wrong and need to pay closer attention to lyrics. For instance, "One" fits Mulder perfectly. The isolation, the grief over his sister, his life of lies. "Walking After You" is obviously the Mulder-Scully anthem, as is "More Than This". "Crystal Ship" just fits X-Files as a whole, especially the mythology. Really listen to the song. If you want to go further, I can almost see it as a Mulder/Scully song. "Hunter" is so obvious, which is why I am astounded when people say the song is pointless. It's such a Mulder anthem. "16 Horses" is the perfect paranoia theme song. I don't know why Chris Carter didn't play "Black" during Mulder's search for Scully in the spaceship. The lyrics/mood of the song fit that whole sequence, not to mention Mulder's quest. It's almost as if he's reading the lyrics.("And I follow the tracks that lead me down ,And I never follow what's right And they wonder sometimes when they see all the Sadness and pain the truth brings to light").Though it is an instrumental, "Teotihuacan" fits very easily into the dark underbelly of the X-Files. I just see the Syndicate in my mind everytime this song plays. It could have easily been in an episode when Mulder and Scully are doing their usual search for truth, espically a mythology episode.I've always thought of 'Flower Man" as a sort of commentary on Cig. Smoking Man. "One More Murder" is painfully obvious.Read more ›

The high-profile soundtrack to the massively hyped "The X-Files" movie was led off by two principal singles- Foo Fighters' "Walking After You" and Sting & Aswad's "Invisible Sun". Both of the songs are mediocre alternative-pop that are highly unsuitable to the dark atmopshere "The X-Files" has always been associated with. Better picks are obviously the darker, more complicated tracks. The Cardigans' swaggering, jilted-love anthem "Duece", Bjork's freakish "Hunter", and the eerily haunting remix of Sarah McLachlan's "Black" stand out on this inconsistent and loosely-tied disc. Those tracks alone are still worth a listen, but the rest of the album, especially Noel Gahllager's pointless instrumental piece, is pure throw-away.
