Milan Records release Timothy Williams's score for Diablo. The album features the original track 'Bloodline' performed by Zella Day. Set in the 1870s, the movie focuses on a young, California farmer, Jackson, whose wife, Alexsandra, is kidnapped. She is taken in the night by Mexican banditos who seem to hate Jackson. The young man quickly preps his horse and heads off after the kidnappers at first light. On his journey, Jackson squares off with Asian traders, highway robbers, Native Americans and even old friends whom he figured for dead. As Jackson pursues his kidnapped wife, we learn a few things about him: that he was a Civil War veteran, that he did things during the war that changed him and that he just can’t seem to shake a particularly murderous highwayman who seems to be hunting him...

Anyone who has heard Timothy Williams's music (Red Sky; Walking with the Enemy) in the past already knows that he is capable of turning in some beautiful themes.

While there's a hint of cliched Western / Mexican film music, this is really only evident in the track 'Preacher's Theme'. Thankfully Williams doesn't use it as a crutch on which to build the majority of the score.

The album contains 21 tracks (57 min, 39 sec) and, on the whole, Williams delivers some subtle, beautiful moments ('She's Gone'; 'Gallop'; Carter's House'; 'Sun Was Still Not Down'). There are also quite a few dark track ('Ezra'; 'Carter's Death').

On balance, this is an enjoyable score that won't disappoint Williams's fans.
