The first of Hefner's four studio albums, 'Breaking God's Heart' is perhaps their most downbeat and introspective release. As a record, it also sounds rawer and less produced than 'The Fidelity Wars' and other later releases; with its restrained guitars, dirty synths and even an organ combining to create a sound that is both pared-back and fits well with Hayman's private, often deeply sexual lyrics. That's not to say that 'Breaking God's Heart' is a difficult listen, or inaccessible. This is an album filled with lovelorn laments, from the heartbreaking tale of a lonely, cuckolded husband ('Tactile') to the search for validation through sex ('Another Better Friend'), and the universal need for love ('Love Inside the Stud Farm' - told from the perspective of, well, a horse). 'Breaking God's Heart' also sounds remarkably fresh and relevant, almost 15 years after its original release; and this is primarily down to Hayman's songwriting. His voice is, admittedly, limited and rather tuneless; but the exhausted, saddened emotion he puts into his vocals on most of these songs, along with the splendid lyrical tales of love won, searched for (and more often than not) lost, means that the album has a timeless, moving quality. The album doesn't rock like certain tracks on 'The Fidelity Wars', for example, do. This means that the band never really get a chance to display the talent for a noisier, rockier and messier sound which they would achieve on some later recordings. Equally, the thing 'Breaking God's Heart' lacks, really, is variety. Each song on the album, in and of itself, is excellent - but to listen to as a whole, it can become almost a little dull.Read more ›

Hefner's debut LP is something of an indie classic and serves as the ideal introduction to gifted songwriter Darren Hayman. There's something of the awkward adolescent in some of these songs but coupled with a more mature, more experienced perspective.........there's odes to a 'Librarian' and a 'Sad Witch' and even a 'Hymn to the Postal Service' (one of Haymans finest songs). Darrens gone on to build a committed fanbase and critical acclaim with his solo projects (including 2011 double album 'January Songs' where he wrote a song for each day of the month) but this is where it all started...

Remember the Violent Femmes? Hefner does. Fifteen years after the Femmes left a permanent impression on the record collections of America's college students, Hefner debuts with a decidedly British take on the Wisconsin trio's folksy punk, leaving the twentysomething angst, sexual misadventures and Catholic hand-wringing intact. But Breaking God's Heart is no "Blister in the Sun Redux," as singer/guitarist Darren Hayman injects more than enough hooks, self-deprecating humor and knee-jerk socialism to transcend his band's influences. The jangly sing-along singles, "Love Will Destroy Us in the End" and "The Sweetness Lies Within" are among the highlights, as is the countrified "A Hymn for the Postal Service" (one in a long line of Hefner hymns) and "God Is on My Side," a slow dance number that is either aided or hindered by Hayman's shambolic falsetto-depending on how important vocal virtuosity is to you. A few of the ballads misfire, if only because the melodies are scant and Hayman's voice is left undressed for far too long. Still, it's clear that Hefner possesses a fair amount of soul, even if it can only be labeled The Hefner Soul, as an earlier 10-inch called it. An impressive first step from a band brimming with songs.
