Album Review

Slaraffenland's third album and follow-up release to their American debut, Private Cinema, finds the Danish group continuing to be perfectly engaging and pleasant — which might be part of the problem. We're on Your Side is very much a product of its international time, a cross-border 21st century rock that is warm-sounding and understated, wide open and aiming to recapitulate little that isn't already known and felt.

It'll doubtless put some smiles on some faces as it goes, but it neither reaches for more nor tries to be anything less. Perhaps it is enough, but does it have to be?
