3 stars Quite unbelievably, the soundtrack to this terrible film is actually worth buying. That's because it has five ELO tracks on it. They are very good tracks in the "Discovery"/"Time" style with "Don't Walk Away" being not only a beautiful song but a real highlight in their career. "I'm Alive" and "All Over The World" are energetic numbers with Lynne's usual, detailed production shining through, and "The Fall" is a good song too. The title track is well-known but can be rather tedious to listen to, mainly due to Olivia Newton John's shrieky noise (er, sorry, voice). The non-ELO tracks are not good unless you're into bad Broadway musicals. Which I'm not. Sorry.
