X Files - Truth And The Light

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Having watched Millennium again after a long time, I fell in love again with the craft of Mark Snow - It's the start of a 1013 rewatch - currently on Harsh Realm. I then got the idea to try and create an expanded version of The Truth And The Light without dialogue, but soon found it's such a patchwork piece it's not really faithfully possible. There are also cues that are still unreleased in original form.

However I want to document my cross referencing of the tracks on The Truth And The Light with tracks available on the LaLaLand X Files score volumes.

*...though Shortened version without dialogue is available as part of the Mark Snow - Snow Files 'Suite From The X-Files' (also on the XF 20th Anniversary release)

Do let me know if I've made any mistakes or omissions.
I really do like The Truth and the Light, for a long time it was the only official X-Files score release available, I may even get the recent glow in the dark Vinyl, but I sure would like all cues in original form without dialogue.

It seems to have gone quiet for X Files score releases for now. Hope it's not the end of the line.
