Buy it... if you seek a decent collection of music and dialogue from the show, for this album is among the better companion products to accompany any sci-fi show of its era.

Avoid it... if you have never seen an episode of "Lexx," in which case this album may seem completely senseless in its tone and presentation.

Lexx: (Marty Simon) Along with "Farscape," one of the Sci-Fi Channel's greatest triumphs in the late 1990's was the explicitly sexual "Lexx," a series of 65 episodes over four years that were dominated by everything and anything perverse. To understand the series at any level, you really must watch an episode or two. It was clearly aimed at an adult audience that sought an imaginatively dark alternative to the feel-good stories that had dominated television science fiction over the previous ten years. The level of sexuality in its writing was so flagrant that the show has been referred to by the upset pious portion of society as softcore porn rather than a sci-fi affair. While that's an oversimplification of the series, such comments aren't entirely baseless. One could easily get the impression that the sci-fi venue for "Lexx" is only a casual backdrop for the constant orgasmic content of the episodic scripts. Not that any of this is wrong; in fact, television could use more such deviant creativity regardless of what George W. Bush and his media overlords have to say about it. The show's extension into its third and fourth seasons owed no small debt of gratitude to the consistently pornographic elements of its premise. Not only was its open sexuality responsible, on the whole, for the success of the show, but ultimately its music as well. For a series that included characters blatantly pulling at each other's loins, debating the intricacies of supreme sexual satisfaction, and arguing about the same old "who gets to mount whom," a new breed of sci-fi score was required. Composer Marty Simon was already a veteran of songwriting and arranging, and remained as the long-standing musical artist for the show. His music for the series, in coordination with the often bizarre and totally unexplainable happenings on screen, jumps around through several kinds of aural genres as needed for the haphazard scripts.
