good evening.

truth, a song from the recently released solo album from alex ebert (ima robot and edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros), was featured at the end of breaking bad's season 4 premiere, which aired this evening. what's so great about this song being featured on the show? the song is the perfect device to represent walt's voice. the song speaks the words he's desperate to say. "the truth is that i never shook my shadow, every day it's trying to trick me into doing battle." you know how fitting this verse is, if you follow the show. i have to say, i really like the music on breaking bad. the song choices seem so fitting to me and deliberate, not simply dropped in for the sake of someone's ego (hint to some of you music supervisors out there).
