Made it through my first playthrough of the sets. There's a huge amount to digest and it'll take repeated listenings to really appreciate it. My first impression is that Volume 3 is, on the whole, more enjoyable than Volume 2 if not maybe quite at the level of the first set. The decision to go for longer suites this time was a good one... it gives the set its own distinct flavor and showcases Snow's work in a different light than the first two volumes.

For the most part, the episodes selected have enough good material that they can sustain the longer suites with the odd exception (Trustno1, El Mundo Gira). My preference has always been for Snow's music for the first couple of seasons with definite diminishing returns for me from season 6 and beyond. With those preferences in mind, I have to say the first disk of this set is just incredibly good... it's going to get a lot of play. The material in the remaining disks is excellent if not quite as strong overall as disk 1 to my ear, but there's still a lot of highlights in there. Special props to the produces for the super lengthy suite (must be close to the complete score!) from Drive which is a spooky, tense and sad score that I've loved since I've first seen the episode.

I really hope there'll be a fourth and final volume from the series. But even if this is it, its remarkable to think that we now have 15 or so hours of music from the show in these sets which is just huge after having only had the 45 minutes from The Truth and the Light for all of those years. Thank you so much LLL and Mark Snow!

Chris

P.S. Please please please include some music from Duane Barry/Ascension, Never Again and the teaser from Invocation in the next set!

Received mine in the UK yesterday - super quick service.

HAve listened to the first two discs and I'm liking this set a lot already. The longer suites and more tracks per episode really allow for a better listening experience. The music seems to flow better and you stay longer within the musical atmosphere of the episode. There aren't quite so many jumps in style / tone like there have been in previous sets.
Hopefully if there is a Volume 4 it will continue in this vein.

However, whether this is it, there is a mop-up release, or a further full Volume 4. Thanks MV, LLL, Fox & Mark Snow for these three great sets.

Received my signed copy this morning in the UK.. lovely and speedy shipping..

Another post of praise for a really great set - and I've only just listened to half the first disc so far.. !

Great packaging and pictures.. really makes me miss the series at it's prime..

Question: How far are we away from getting every note recorded for the series being released, a-la the fabulous Star Trek OS set?

No music from 'Deep Throat' ending scene (Mulder meets Deep Throat)? Very bad... (( sorry

I think I read that MV mentioned LLL might release a limited set of missing cues from some of the previous volumes. I'd personally love to have more music from "Pilot", "Deep Throat", "EVE", and "EBE".

And let s not forget the same cue is heard in "Ghost In The Machine" too, which hasn't been covered yet and REALLY REALLY should!! I think it would be better to do it this way ^^

It's not the complete cue there...It's only a part of it.

The cue we hear last in 'Deep Throat' episode (what a shame it isn't in Volume 3) starts when Mrs Budahas closes the door to Mulder and Scully and ends when Deep Throat responds to Mulder's answer: 'Mr Mulder they've been here for a long, long time". (40:05 - 43:28)

I would like also to say that in 'Deep Throat' episode we have another 2 cues which in my opinion should be in the next Volume.

The first cue starts when Mulder says to Scully: "I've been tracking this case since it came through the Boise noise", then, (the cue continues), after this scene we have the first meeting Mulder - Deep Throat when we hear for the first time the characteristic theme. (4:00 - 6:14 or 6:46).

The second cue starts when Mulder and Scully go from cafe to Ellens Air Base, then follows the car window blown up. (14:33 - 16:03).

MV, you have a die hard fan of X-Files here. Deep Throat's theme is something special and you should reconsider and put these cues in the next Volume.

Well, i have to say i was gladly surprised by how good "Deep throat" score is indeed, so i wouldn't mind hearing more of it. Just received my set this morning, i freakin' love it! ( it only only one week to arrive here in France, i was quiet surprised)

I ordered "Fight The Future" with it too, the booklet is really beautiful, lovely job. And of course the score is great.

Now, is it too soon to start a poll for volume 4 requests ? ^^' Or will you just follow the guide from "Eat The Corn" to know what s requested the most? (btw it should be updated soon i guess)

Here are some of those cues you guys were talking about. I ripped them from the Blu-rays.
I to had wished these were on the set, and some of my favorites as well. I think the sound quality is good too. Enjoy

Yes! Some of those cues are here...Thanks for this upload! Let's hope that we're going to have more music from "Deep Throat" in the next set...

PS: Check the final scene from "Fallen Angel", it's a part of "Deep Throat's" episode music there, just like it's in "Ghost in the Machine" episode, both with some variations!

I received mine too, signed and all. I'm enjoying this a lot. A lot, a lot! The music from seasons 1/2 in particular is everything I wanted a soundtrack for X-Files to be: very atmospheric, piano on top of ambient electronic! The most memorable cues are rarely "scary/horror". Genderbender, Sleepless. Quite a bit of music from "The Truth and the Light" in "3". I'm very surprised by "Space", which is an episode that was not even on my 90-episode list, probably because since the episode itself is not well liked nobody really bothered with it. But the music is fantastic!

Thank you LLL!

The update is coming soon!
I'm following all threads, so do suggest whatever is on your mind.

Could anyone tell me if the 1st Season End Credits on Volume 3 is from season 1? Or is it maybe from season 2? Because the mix differs slightly from the track on Volume 2 (for instance, the opening and ending beat).

While I'm at it, I assume the Main Title in the Bad Blood track is the regular post-season 3 main title, or is it some sort of remix?

La-La Land, do you have a replacement for the disc 2? I have a problem with this disc.

I noticed the same problem. The last track starts skipping at 3:20 mark. I inspected my disc 2 and noticed at the edge of the CD there appeared to be some kind of film on it. I cleaned it with a soft cloth and played the track again with no skipping.

Guys, I would suggest emailing the label with these concerns.

I am loving the new set, but I noticed something a little odd. It sounds to me that all the cues from the episode "Space" are in mono. The rest of the music is in stereo. Anyone else notice this?

So, this question might have been asked elsewhere, but I was listening to this set and wondering if, now that we have so much music from the series, has anyone tried to recreate the old "Truth and The Light" album using the samee score tracks now found on the LLL sets? It actually may not be possible since I don't think all the music from that old album is available on the new sets.
