  1. My Guilty Romance is not quite as good a record as its predecessor. It just doesn’t have the density of great tunes that made "Disco Romance" such an addiction.

    This follow-up to 2006's clubland sleeper Disco Romance revealing a polished synthesis of Balearic beats and featherly harmonies. [Oct 2009, p.116]
  3. Most of Sally Shapiro’s sophomore LP falls victim to that ancient killer of dance music’s credibility: sameness.
  4. My Guilty Pleasure is a very listenable album, with plenty of high points, but overall it tends to fade into the background a little too easily.
  5. There are a number of songs with enough stuff to listen to many times, but there isn’t anything grand enough to linger in the mind like an inamorata.
  6. My Guilty Pleasure, which, if not boring, is too similar both to her own prior work and that of dozens of other European chanteuses who offer dark, icy ballads striving for breathy mystery.
  7. 50
    With a handful of good moments, and one standout track, this sophomore effort by one Sally Shapiro and her producer Johan Agebjörn, is mediocre.
