a facebook posting from mark snow's page says:

"Just one more thing before 2012. A very special thanks to the guys over at La-La-Land-Records, for making a dream come true with the "X-Files Volume 1"-Box-Set. And of course a very special thanks to all the fans out there, who were there when the time had come. The first set did well in sales, in fact, of the 3000 units, that were made, there are only 200 units left by now.

So a big THANK YOU to all the fans, who bought the set, it´s because of you that we will see Volume 2 in 2012. And if you didn´t buy it until now, get the last 200 sets before it´s too late. wink"


so pick it up while you can and I am oh so happy to know that there appears to be no likely delay in the next volume. a calendar year at most to go!

So few left, with a definite Volume 2 coming next year? I suppose I'll be adding one of these to my order for Batman Forever on Tuesday.

Now if only we could be assured of a Volume 2 for LLL's Star Trek:TNG set (Vol. 2 could be DS9, VOY, or ENT music rather than more TNG)... but given the relatively poor sales, I fear we may have seen our last bit of Trek TV music on CD in a long while.

Poor sales because the music is generally bland and best relegated as background to those episodes on TV? I think a box set of TOS would sell like hotcakes (because the music is more memorable and listenable) How many themes from any of the post TOS series stick in your mind like the Kirk/Spock AMOK TIME fight scene? smile

So memorable it was used for the national anthem of Doctor Zoidberg's home planet Decapod 10. But I digress along with Charles...in a fun way!

Well, I personally find the scores for DS9 and Voyager (especially the later seasons of both) to be a little more exciting and less restricted stylistically than the TNG scores, so I would think they would sell better.

So, will LLL be releasing a X-Files Vol. 2 this year?? I love the X-Files Vol. 1 and I'm still listening to it!

This has nothing to do with the above debate, so don't read it if you're only interested in that.

I came late to the X-Files--after it was off the air--and have yet to see the last few seasons. But from the very first episode I loved the music. It's almost insane, the amount of creativity in these scores for a weekly series, done principally by one man (and those who help in the post-production/music department).

I have so enjoyed these discs. In a thread before they came out I noted that I hoped we'd get "The Field Where I Died" and it is indeed on this set. I checked my itunes playlist and I played that episode's tracks 41 times in the first couple of weeks I had the set.

I look forward to the next set(s), and hope we get the music for the scene where Mulder is abducted.

P.S. I often use some of the quieter tracks as mood music for when I'm reading SF novels, and the more active ones for when I'm writing them, but this is real music, which I enjoy just listening to, and there's no more I can ask for from such an extraordinary set.

Thanks to everyone involved with this set.

Most likely. I think it was Mark Snow's facebook page that said something along the lines of 'thanks for buying the X-Files box (of which there are/were about 300 or so left), and Box 2 should come out this year!'

Also, MV said to expect 1 box set per quarter. So if Friday the 13th and X-Files are 2 of them, then I ask... what else is coming?

That's the 64,000 dollars question Scully. lol!! I guess the better question at least for me is what quarter of 2012 the X will be released? The first volume took a long time to get done but was well worth it!

The theme from "The Inner Light" seems fairly popular, assuming your question wasn't rhetorical.

But what you've said is opinion; probably with a healthy dose of nostalgia thrown in since you're old enough (according to your profile) to have grown up watching TOS rather than TNG. But it's an opinion you have every right to.

I, on the other hand, grew up watching TNG. And even then, I wasn't quite old enough to begin watching when it premiered. I wasn't a regular viewer until midway through season 3, at which time I would've been 7 (or a couple months away). The music in FSM's Ron Jones set brings back a lot of childhood memories for me, and it isn't nearly so "bland" that I've ever had a problem placing most cues upon listening to them. I enjoy TOS music as well, though. I have all the TOS CD releases, including the Varese and Label X re-recordings. I certainly wouldn't object to more.

But I still think the relatively poor sales of existing Trek TV releases will have some impact on any future potential release, whichever series the music is from. Maybe not as much of an impact as it might have if a larger, less personal label were in charge of the decision. If that were the case, they'd simply consider all Star Trek under the same umbrella, regardless of series, taking poor sales of one as an indicator of how any other might do. In most other matters, Trek fans aren't exactly known for being the most discriminating of consumers (i.e. they'll buy pretty much anything with the Trek label), after all. But since labels like Intrada or LLL tend to take more notice and communicate much more closely with their customers, I hope they'll eventually release some more music from Trek TV series (TOS and Enterprise is what I'm most interested at this point). But I think any future releases will start out as more cautious ones than either the Ron Jones box or even LLL's 3-disc TNG set.

I love revisiting the set, though I have to admit that 'I want to believe" is getting more playtime due to the snowy backdrop currently on display here smile

Also can't wait for volume 2!

I got my shipping confirmation on May 11th, and here in Canada I'm still waiting. Argh.

One customer in Holland is still waiting too, I am not able to check disc 3 for this mentioned skipping error aswell, so hoping there is still a replacement available if the set arrives (I hope it does very soon!)



hmm.. finally playing now for the first time... CD 3, track 5 so far and there is a little tick around 2:18. Is this what you've been talking about?
