Back in the 1990s - before the term was hijacked - the revered US label Deep Elm began releasing compilations called The Emo Diaries. The project showcased acts from across the world and concluded with a final, four-years-in-the-waiting volume in 2011.

Had they been starting out during the series' heyday, General Fiasco would've added to any album's tracklisting, but with the right push and luck the songs on Unfaithfully Yours could give the Derry quartet the level of success that eluded nearly all the Emo Diaries' honour role.

The first seven tracks here are shoo-ins for singles, and while General Fiasco over-reach on the two ballads in the second half, this is a supremely confident record of pop hooks and guitar mauling that deserves the roving ear of many a Foo Fighters and Two Door Cinema Club fan.

High infidelity, if you will.
