Contest: Win A Signed Copy Of The 'Breaking Bad' Soundtrack

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist August 8, 2013 at 4:05PM

There are many elements that have come together to make "Breaking Bad" not only one of the best shows on TV right now, but really of all time. From the fearless plotting, the breathless direction and the outstanding performances from the cast — Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn and many more — all have come together in the kind of perfect storm you don't get too often. But not mentioned nearly often enough is the score by Dave Porter.

Breaking Bad

There are many elements that have come together to make "Breaking Bad" not only one of the best shows on TV right now, but really of all time. From the fearless plotting, the breathless direction and the outstanding performances from the cast — Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn and many more — all have come together in the kind of perfect storm you don't get too often. But not mentioned nearly often enough is the score by Dave Porter.

Providing cues to a drama that is so rich in twists, surprises, retribution and small moments of grace is no easy task, but Porter accomplishes it with a subtle hand. His score rarely intrudes on the show, but instead adds a nicely honed texture that's part and parcel of the complex stories and New Mexico setting. And while the disc of his work has been in stores since last summer, with season premiere arriving this weekend, now is as good a time as any to be reminded of Porter's work. And we'll make it a bit easier for you — we've got a copy of the soundtrack disc signed by Porter for you to have. How do you win?

Email us with your and name and address and tell us your favorite episode of "Breaking Bad" and why? (Here are our 5 favorites). Good luck! Soundtrack details below. Update: Contest closed, winner will be contacted via email.
