Various Artists - The X Files: Songs In The Key of X (1996)

Country: U.S.A.
Genre: Alternative Rock
Label Number: Alternative Rock, Industrial, Post Grunge, Stage & Screen

© 1996 Warner Bros. Records
This album purports to be an attempt at recursion by the creator of The X-Files, Chris Carter -- songs inspired by the show that he hopes will provide further inspiration for the show (just as Nick Cave's "Red Right Hand" did for the "Ascension" episode.) Contributions here include Mark Snow, with the title music, the Foo Fighters with a grand rendition of Gary Numan's "Down in the Park" (Numan's songs would fit this show perfectly), Sheryl CrowFrank BlackFilter (who abandon their roaring faux-NIN sound for moody acoustic guitars), Meat PuppetsElvis Costello with Brian Eno and even Screamin' Jay Hawkins. While not perfect, the album makes a nice alternative compilation, one that has that blue-light glow of twisted mystery X-ficianados have come to enjoy.
