2 stars Sheet Music is a slightly more consistent album than The Original Soundtrack. However, there is no multi-part suite here like A Nuit A Paris, or as good a ballad as I'm Not In Love. This is well recorded, well produced, very polished and sophisticated pop music with only very slight relations to prog. Many of the songs fall flat and none of them stand out, they are melodious but not very memorable. The key ingredient for a successful pop album is therefore largely missing.

The vocal harmonies are lovely, and there are many instruments involved, but somehow they do not manage to make interesting music. They (try to) hide their lack of musical originality and their lack of instrumental and vocal virtuosity behind a wall of humour and sarcasm. It rarely works. Indeed, the lyrics are often very bad! This album, like most 10cc albums, is therefore only for fans of this band. There are a lot of other bands you need to consider in the prog related world before you turn to 10cc. And if you do, you should start with the album How Dare You! which is a more consistent album than Shiit, sorry... Sheet Music.
