4.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Bad: The Original Score August 28, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Breaking Bad has always used music extremely well. This album features the score by Dave Porter - his original compositions are used in many of the most important scenes of the show. Mr. Porter's music helps define the show and always seems to place us into the world we see on the screen. The style of the music perfectly captures the vast open landscapes of New Mexico and the downward spiral of meth addiction.

The album begins with an extended version of the Breaking Bad main title theme, and then progresses with music from the entire series (including two tracks from the fifth season). There are some really great cues throughout the album - "Gray Matter" and "Hank in Pursuit" are among my favorites.

The score certainly works well within the context of the television series, but not all of it is particularly exciting to listen to on its own. However, if you love the show as I do then the music will often take you back to your favorite scenes: examples include the tracks "Crawl Space" and "Parking Garage Standoff", both of which were used at key moments in Season 4.

This album contains 20 tracks totaling approximately an hour of music. It comes highly recommended to fans of Breaking Bad; but because this is very different than most traditional film/television scores, you may wish to sample the music before buying. If you're looking for an album with a mix of songs and score, then try Music from the Original Series Breaking Bad.

EDIT: Volume 2 of the score has now been released, and it's just as good as the first album: Breaking Bad: Original Score From The Television Series Volume 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic stuff, but know what you're getting. August 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
First off, this is an album completely of score. Not traditional "songs" in the typical sense. I realize the title of it says that, but some people can be idiotic.

This is some pretty moody stuff. Most of it is fairly melancholy, but then there are tracks that REALLY step it up and get your heart pumping. There's also some really creepy ones. You can't really beat the creepiness of "Disassemble." Puts me right back into that scene from the show. It isn't JUST creepy, it's kind of beautiful and sad as well. Such a unique track.

If I had to pick a favorite, it'd probably be "Aztek." That track goes from breakneck pace to a slow almost-lullaby, back to breakneck, and then finally creepy. Some real variety in just that one track, and it's one of a couple that do that. It's hard to deny the awesomeness of the track "Crawlspace" as well. There's a few reasons that many people viewed Crawlspace as their favorite episode of the show. For me, the music was at least 50% of that reason. It accentuated those scenes perfectly. Fair warning though, if you're listening through headphones with the volume cranked up, the end of that track can make your head explode from loudness (and intensity).

If there were one track painfully missing from this album, it would be the score from the heist sequence from season 5's "Dead Freight." That was an awesome one, and I'm sad it's not on here. Perhaps there will be a second score album some day?

You know, listening to this outside of the context of the show, I can't help but think of how well these tracks would fit a video game. Perhaps a horror game, or at least one that's got some weird stuff happening. If Mr. Porter reads this, he should consider giving that a shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only one complaint...I want more of it! October 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So, I'll be blunt and to the point. I mainly like one type of music : original score. There are other artists out there who I like, listen to, and respect, but 99% of the time, I'm listening to a score. Must I say WOW what a good score this is - and for a tv series too! (A fantastic one at that). The opening title tells you that you're in for some non-traditional kind of music, which sometimes isn't a bad thing. Here's a rundown of my favorite cues :

Breaking Bad - Main Title Theme (Extended), as reviewed above.

Matches In The Pool - played early in season one, as walt sits at the pool, figuring out what to do now that he'll probably be dead within a year, or two. Very calm, and sombery at the same time.

Smoking Jesse's Pot - seems like something you'd hear in a typical stoner movie, but still pretty damn awesome.

Grey Matter - Played during a flashback in early season one. Very moody, and eerie.

Baby's coming - very tense, and fast paced, but you're also worried about time running out for an important thing (Much like in the episode itself).

Jane's Demise - once again, very somber, and one of the standout cues in the series.

Hank In Pursuit - actually an amalgamation of cues, this plays as Hank becomes more and more desperate to figure out just who this "Heisenberg" is.

Crawl Space - Frantic, and fast paced.

Dissassemble - Moody, quiet, with an interesting ending.

These are imo, the standout cues of the album (not that any are at all bad, very worth the low asking price of amazon). Buy it, and let's hope for a second CD full of score, and left off cues from the series,
