I can't even describe it. For those of you who are Maggots fans, you know exactly what I mean.
For those of you who are considering this record: If you like B movies, terrible (yet hilarious) acting, good old fashioned punk rock that is well put together, VERY catchy and contains fantastic lyrics, you should buy this record!
The levels jump around from track to track. I don't know if this was a problem with the original recording.
The production sounds dull -- drums and guitars sound as if you're listening behind a blanket. Comparisons to KISS' _Hotter_than_Hell_ come to mind. Still, the lapses in production pale in comparison to the careless job done in procuring a master and transferring it to CD.
It's a shame, because in _Maggots:_The_Record_, there's a really great work of music struggling to get out. Stylistically, it has a maturity (and, obviously, a coherence) that was lacking in some earlier Plasmatics albums. It's about half as long as it should have been, but on the other hand, there's no filler.
A grisly....GRISLY ..fable about man recieving his comeuppance after decades of abusing his environment and WHAT a comeuppance it is! hint---look at the album cover :) yechhh
My copy is a download from Amazon and it seems that the between song dialog is recorded as being quiter than the songs themselves.This is an annoyance whith my ipod as I have to fumble with the volume between each song, ( the story is narrated in salacious detail between each song and.... hehehe its really gross. :) You can see why The Plasmatics had such problems with their career... I kind wish I could have seen them live. Im 44 and just started listening to them this month 6-13.
Some of their albums dont stack up well to this one but if you're interested in their sound any of their albums will do well but THIS one...this one is worth starting with.

are classic. The production on this is also huge. The drum and other sounds are spectacular. But beyond this the music is awesome, complex, sometimes melodic, sometimes operatic, and often hard thrash, speed metal played and arranged with an astounding virtuosity. The only regrettable part is that because of all the dialogue there's only 6 song trax on the album, but these are every one of them killers, from Brain Dead, to You're a Zombie, Destroyers, Propagators, Day of the Humans is Gone, and Wendy's vocals are completely superb...really at her peak. My only regret is that this was not a double album so we could have had twice the songs.

I'm not a particular fan of the Plasmatics, but this story driven CD is a fun experience. Although the story seems uncomplete, but the music really serves it well. Read morePublished 4 months ago by James H. Wallace Jr.
Me and my buddies used to listen to this on cassette back in the 80"s. We got a kick out of it again. Good speed metal and slow mosh rock with a funny story.Published on July 9, 2014 by Chris J. Putnam

Far ahead of its' time, Maggots is, for me at least, the finest flower of punk rock. The references to genetic engineering gone wrong and global warming could come from today's... Read morePublished on October 25, 2012 by Kishmei
Geez, I really don't even remember making this thing. I just know that years later when I was working a day job I heard a training video by the same narrator. Small world.Published on April 17, 2011 by Chris R.
I absolutely adore Wendy O Wiliams and I am a hardcore Plasmatics fan but I kinda wish that the narration had been placed in one whole chunk at the end of the disc instead of... Read morePublished on February 13, 2008 by David Pigecella
