  • Summary: This is the second album for the actress best known for her role in High School Musical.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 6
  2. Negative: 2 out of 6
  1. Not everything works--Tisdale isn't convincing when she tries to deal in either pain or carnality, but when she sticks to the surface, she makes sure that Guilty Pleasure lives up to its title.
  2. At 24, though, she's still treading an overly familiar pop-rock trail already better blazed by 16-year-old Miley Cyrus, and Guilty Pleasure isn't so much pleasurable as simply vapid.
  3. Power ballad 'What If' reveals that Tisdale can deliver the radio-ready goods, and 'Tell Me Lies' is convincingly spunky. But the rest of the material, as racy as it sometimes is, doesn't give the singer room to comfortably let loose.
  4. Ms. Tisdale, an average singer, gasps on 'Hot Mess.' "I’m leaving every piece of my conscience behind." But being bad, it turns out, is sort of boring.
  5. There are a few glimmers of hope; Tisdale has said her heroes are Pat Benatar and Kelly Clarkson. But to succeed in the crowded hallways of teen pop, she'll have to be as fearless a misfit as those two bad girls--and not feel guilty about it in the morning.
  6. By chasing trends in an attempt to stay current, Guilty Pleasure sounds hopelessly dated and out-of-touch in the ever changing pop marketplace.

    #1 on itunes for a reason, this album has fantastic melodies, great production, and tisdale has likable charisma as a vocalist. A perfect pop #1 on itunes for a reason, this album has fantastic melodies, great production, and tisdale has likable charisma as a vocalist. A perfect pop album, don't listen to the critics let them continue to listen to obscure crap like grizzly bear, For the rest of us normal people that actually like music that is catchy and well produced you can't go wrong with Tisdale.

    Guilty Pleasure é um bom álbum Pop/Rock, mas não chega a ser excelente. Algumas faixas são muito descartáveis e cansativas, como Hot Mess eGuilty Pleasure é um bom álbum Pop/Rock, mas não chega a ser excelente. Algumas faixas são muito descartáveis e cansativas, como Hot Mess e Tell Me Lies, que em minha opinião são as piores do álbum. Mas aqui Ashley mostra que tem muito talento e pode fazer muitos albuns melhores daqui pra frente. As melhores faixas do CD são Hair, Acting Out e Masquerade. Expand

Ashley's voice lacks grit and edge. Most of the songs are boring because of the sick beat and rhythm that does not fit the rock genre. Although, Ashley is a real singer but the album lacks everything for its title. Expand

    Conquer the world: Everyone who considers themselves music buffs spit in your general direction. I understand your resentment of vacuous Conquer the world: Everyone who considers themselves music buffs spit in your general direction. I understand your resentment of vacuous hipsters who value obscure music as outlets to identify how "hip" they are, but... NORMAL people? Really, you don't have to be abnormal to gag at this schlock. Even if you are looking for mindless "catchy" pop, you can do way better than this. Expand
