AllMusic Review by

Sprinkled with period hits from Buddy Holly ("That'll Be the Day"), Fats Domino ("Ain't That a Shame"), and the Platters ("My Prayer"), the primary focus of the soundtrack to the space exploration-themed drama October Sky is Mark Isham's exquisite original score, which captures the cosmic wonder of the film's story without resorting to schmaltz.
