    Anyone giving this CD a 10 doesnt know anything about music. This CD has some of the worst lyrics i have ever heard and the production is god awful. Her first cd was decent but this one is just terrible in every way...be warned!!!

    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.

    Tisdale's sophomore album sounds as if it arrived to pop, two years two late. The production all sounds recycled. Perhaps if she weren't scraping the bottom of the Dr. Luke Max Martin barrel for b-sides so pathetic, not even Skye Sweetnam or Fefe Dobson recorded them. "Hot Mess" is perhaps the best and most original track, in that it cheekily describes Tisdale's desperation in anTisdale's sophomore album sounds as if it arrived to pop, two years two late.

"Hot Mess" is perhaps the best and most original track, in that it cheekily describes Tisdale's desperation in an autobiographical lyric play. But still, grasping for originality in a track straight from the gutter out of Avril Lavigne's do not record pile. Tisdale has no identity, and will remain unknown in the music world, aside from playing Sharpay Evans on High School Musical. Expand

    That sucks! OMG, how can anyone hear it? Never buy guilty pleasure, you will regret it! A copy of other mixed albums for other singers. Extremely loud and annoying.

  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. 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.
