  • Liner notes: David Was, Chris Carter.
Based around one of the more unique TV series' of the 1990s, this album features new material by Soul Coughing, Sheryl Crow and the Foo Fighters, among others. All but two songs (among them "Frenzy") were written specifically for this album, and most have been heard in The X files.
"Frenzy" by Screamin Jay Hawkins can be heard in the episode "Humbug" (originally aired on 31 March 1995) in which the Alligator Man, a circus performer afflicted with a rare skin disease, is the latest victim in a series of inexplicable attacks that have ranged over the entire country in the past few years. When Mulder and Scully arrive to investigate, however, they find an entire town full of circus performers and carnival freaks. Unraveling the mystery takes them to the limits of the bizarre and the surrealistic, as they must chase a killer through a community of freaks. Black humor abounds as the solution to the mystery - and the fate of the killer - stuns even the unflappable X-Files team.
There is a note in the CD booklet saying: "NICK CAVE AND THE DIRTY THREE would like you to know that 0 is also a number." (try to program track 0 on your CD player... or play track 1 and skip back to track 0...)
Almost all of the tracks appearing on this sampler were commissioned by the show's creator Chris Carter (with help from David Was and Warner Bros. A&R exec Geoffrey Weiss).
The CD has got the "parental advisory" sticker because of the song "Star kitten" which includes the word fuck.

...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]
