Kim Fowley's The Day the Earth Stood Still begins with a lively psychedelic blues-rock cover of "Cadillac." It's a very strong opener, setting up the songs that follow very well. It's not until "The Man Without a Country" that the album starts to lose a little bit of steam. The folkier songs, in particular, are hardly distinguishable from their more popular contemporaries being released simultaneously all over world; it's in the psychedelic, freaky stuff that Kim Fowley shines. "Night of the Hunter," for one, is another hefty, unique tune (like the revamped "Cadillac") that holds this album a notch above the mundane. "Is America Dead?" is reminiscent of early Zappa, as is "Prisoner of War," but what I like about the album is Fowley's ability to fully unleash his experimental ambitions without it being the slightest bit of a turnoff. It nothing I would consider revolutionary, but, yeah, it's a decent experimental/psychedelic rock album..
