The original score is composed by Ramin Djawadi
- There is a separate Leitmotif for Finch, Reese, and the Machine ("Listening With a Million Ears"). There is noticeable (and appropriate) overlap between the Finch theme and the Machine theme.
- Reese's leitmotif is split between three songs: the usual one, titled "Man In A Suit", a darker one, "Angel of Death", and more actiony one, "Knock Knock" (most often used during moments of vehicular mayhem and intervention).
- Root has a unique theme, which is usually introduced by the main notes of it being played in absence of other music. How awesome is it?
- The music from the Ambiguous Ending of "Cura te Ipsum", "Do People Change?" is deliciously menacing.
- The version of "Listening With a Million Ears" from the last three minutes of "Firewall" is particularly awesome.
- Also worthy of mention is the swank, jazzy, uptempo version used in "The Perfect Mark" when Price gets the baseball from the soda vendor.
- Carter gets her own version of "Knock Knock" when committing Reese-style vehicular mayhem in "Endgame".
- "I Know You Are But What Am I?" by Mogwai, hauntingly beautiful at the end of "Foe".
- The chillingly ominous "If I Had a Heart" by Fever Ray, used in "Blue Code".
- "It Serves You Right to Suffer" by John Lee Hooker, in "High Road", very fitting for the sequence where Graham, fearing for his family's safety, leaves his wife a note confessing his hidden past and slips out to join the gang of robbers.
- "Take California" by Propellerheads highlights the light, energetic fun of the heist preparation scenes in "Provenance".
