Sunday's series finale of Breaking Bad marks the conclusion of television's favorite anti-hero saga, but it also means the end of its tense, moody score, which has been a fitting soundtrack to White's descent into crime over the past five seasons. Dave Porter, the series' composer, has scored all 62 episodes of the acclaimed AMC series, and his work is now getting an official release for the second time

Breaking Bad: Original Score From The Television Series Volume 2, available now, features music from the show that wasn't included on the first original score, released last summer. Viewers first heard the above track, "White House Visit," from a flash-forward in season five's "Blood Money" episode, which Porter said was one of the hardest scenes in the series to score.
