  • Based around one of the more unique TV series' of the '90s, SONGS IN THE KEY OF X features new material by Soul Coughing, Sheryl Crow and Foo Fighters, among others. All but two songs were written specifically for this album, and most have either been heard on "The X-Files" or will be on future episodes. Each track approaches an interpretation of the peculiar X-Files style and spirit from a different angle, resulting in a quirky but sturdy record that manages to capture the eclecticism and oddness of the show. Of particular interest are a collaboration between R.E.M. and William S. Burroughs, which features the legendary author of "Naked Lunch" orating the lyrics to "Star Me Kitten" in his trademark cranky mutter, and the first-ever teaming of Elvis Costello and Brian Eno on a seven-minute saga of a song, "My Dark Life." Although fans of "The X-Files" will feel obligated to hear SONGS IN THE KEY OF X, the album stands alone as a cohesive, musically skillful piece of collaborative work.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (3/29/96, pp.61-63) - "...part rock-hipster anthology, part Dr. Demento album for music eggheads--[SONGS IN THE KEY OF X] is easily the most ambitious record ever assembled for a TV soundtrack..." - Rating: B

Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.120) - "...Foo Fighters do a creepy cover of Gary Numan's 'Down In The Park', William Burroughs joins R.E.M. on a new version of 'Star Me Kitten'...and Sheryl Crow's haunting 'On The Outside' could sell the record on its own. Possibly the coolest album in the unknown universe."
