Guilty Pleasure

Guilty Pleasure

by Ashley TisdaleAshley Tisdale



Graduated from High School Musical and on the eve of her 24th birthday, Ashley Tisdale is ready to act like an adult, or at least not like a tween, on her second album, Guilty Pleasure. The title is a giveaway to Ashley's pop aspirations, the cover an indication of her Britney Blackout makeover, the album a curious hodge-podge of every young starlet of the last few years of the decade, both big and small, good and bad. Britney, in her post-K-Fed incarnation, is naturally at the foundation, but Ashley also incorporates Ashlee Simpson's junkie-wannabe rock, Katy Perry's provocative stomp, Fergie's trashy club crawl, some of Christina's theatricality, and Kelly Clarkson's spunk plus, most bizarrely, a bit of Lindsay Lohan's soul-baring second album on "How Do You Love Someone," a song that lashes out at distant dysfunctional parents, a song so atypically ugly it stops the album dead. That is, until the realization flashes that this, like so much in Tisdale's career, is a careful pose from a showbiz kid who relishes performing so much she'll try anything just along as she can stay on the stage. That attitude can be a little grating in High School Musical, because it was amplified in the character of Sharpay Evans, but here it largely works because her total commitment to the game can result in some truly fun disposable pop. 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.

Ashley Tisdale does an amazing job on her 2nd CD! All the songs are wonderful and fun to listen to. She shows off her voice on all the slow songs that she sings and all the fun songs. Ashley has an amazing voice. Her Cd does not sound anything like Ashlee Simpson's 3rd CD. Ashley Tisdale and Ashlee simspson both have amazing voices and shouldn't be compared. Ashley Tisdale worked really hard on this CD and it sounds amazing. I love Ashley Tisdale and her music is amazing!! :)

I have to say that Ashley's second album is a big improvement over her first one. She is showing the listener a wide range of emotions and its not all packed in a cute litle package. The first track talks of being a rebel and letting her love for a boy make her a mess. Something I think we all have felt as girls. My favorite track is Hair. Its a cute track of the joys of letting your boyfriend run his fingers thru your hair and mess it up. Its just a really cute track. How do you love someone is a emotional track that reveals the pain of a bad homelife. Probably the most edgy on the whole album. All told, I happen to love this CD and I think I have played it enough that I have caught my mom singing along to a couple of tracks.
