The Truth and the Light: Music from the X-Files is an album composed of excerpts of instrumental music scores from the first three seasons of the X-Files, along with portions of dialogue from the show. The music of the series was composed by Mark Snow. String and drum instruments are particularly apparent in many songs. However, the music on the album can best be described as ambient and electronic music with a darker side. The album peaked at #42 on the UK album chart.
