We gave it a B+

No, Boxing Hefner isn’t a disc of duets between the Playboy pooh-bah and his favorite pugilists. But don’t be disappointed: The British trio Hefner’s third U.S. release is full of earnest, jerky guitar pop in the tradition of the Velvets, the Clean, and the Modern Lovers, and their lovelorn lyrics are often funny and true. Still, ”Twisting Mary’s Arm” is perfect for Mike Tyson, no? B+
