Album Review: In the End It Always Does by The Japanese House

Very Good, Based on 3 Critics

Under The Radar - 75
Based on rating 7.5/10

On the track "Sunshine Baby," Amber Bain offers a simple thesis for her sophomore album under the moniker The Japanese House: "Everything is cyclical." Love gives way to heartbreak, obsession fades into routine, peace turns into conflict, and the cycle repeats anew. "Hold on to this feeling 'cause you won't feel it for long," she sings. In The End It Always Does meditates on the beauty and pain of this cycle, written in a creative burst at the tail end of 2021 as Bain was sorting through the dissolution of the polyamorous relationship she was in at the time.

Amber Bain did not get the memo. "Spot Dog", the opening vinyl chloride railway disaster of her sophomore full-length In The End It Always Does, had me bracing for the bleak possibility that 4 of my last 5 reviews would have to be negative.
