The appearance of the band Sparks was the highlight of this film. Hearing them perform 'Big Boy' while a big boy attempts to repair a sabotaged rollercoaster made the movie extra special. Yet Sparks is nowhere to be found on the soundtrack album.
Of course, Lalo makes what does appear on the album quite worthwhile. I mean, really, how can you not love a track called 'Calliope Of Death'??? But, nah, I just can't get over the Sparkslessness.
But there's a solution! Buy this album along with Sparks' 'Big Beat', and you'll have a better ideas of what made Rollercoaster
a fun film.
