Saw this fan made video of an opening credit sequence for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS and it reminded me of the 90s X-MEN animated series which i used to follow. A nice Kronos Quartet like rendition of the score is used.

No official release on DVD or CD for the this series or it's music correct?

Actually, the show finally got released just within the last couple of years (properly, following a single compilation release several years ago). The entire series is split up over five volumes and there are no special features of any kind, but I'm just glad Disney finally made it available.

As for the show's music, I believe it was Shuki Levy, who was also responsible for many great '80s cartoon soundtracks. What a wealth of material he's got that will probably never see the light of day. frown

Yep, it's Levy. He has the main title up on his website if you're interested in hearing an SFX-free version. I'd pay good money to have a nice Levy box set, but his site works to whet the appetite.

You can download a ton of his themes directly from his website here -

Most of them appear to be 160kbps mp3's but it's better than nothing. smile

Also, most are titled, but X-Men is not. It is 25 Track 25 1.mp3.

Thanks so much for this thread! I've been wanting to add this theme to the X-Men suite on my Marvel playlist for so long, and it never even occurred to me that the composer might be offering it, free and legit, on his website.

It's now labeled.

Tried once asking if there were plans to release the music and his agent responded nonsensically about concerts in Israel

Me too. That is if he can be bothered to respond.
