Beyond X-Cellent
By Jack Anderson on January 1, 2019
 (8/10)

X-PERIMENTAL
This album starts in a way that is quite experimental. The creator of The X-Files series, Chris Carter, can be heard talking about being visitors on this rock, and then you don't even have the time to light a Morley, as all the tracks have no real pause between them.

X-CERPTS
As a purist, I would normally be against adding voiceovers on top of original music. Not only that, but the dialogue is usually from other episodes. For instance, when you'd expect the dialogue from the end of Nisei (when Mulder jumps on a train), you actually get the dialogue from Anasazi.
But I must say that it works damn well. The dialogue chosen is so iconic that it embeds beautifully within the great music from Mark Snow.

EMOTIONAL
For many X-Philes, the admirers of The X-Files, this album is more than just a disc. It encompasses emotions beyond the normal. Because many of them grew up with the show and, suddenly, this simple TV series became much more.

FAVORITE TRACKS
I think I have listened to the following tracks for more than a thousand of times, really. Here are my favorite tracks from the album:
- Adflatus
- Otium
- Progigno De Axis
- Exoptare Ex Veritas
- Kyrie

SUMMARY
This album is beyond X-Cellent. I give it 8 out of 10.
