Allmusic.com gave Sheet Music a 3 1/2 star review:
10cc’s second album was the next phase in what guitarist Eric Stewart called the band’s “masterplan to control the universe. The Sweet, Slade, and Gary Glitter are all very valuable pop,” he proclaimed, “but it’s fragile because it’s so dependent on a vogue. We don’t try to appeal to one audience, or aspire to instant stardom, we’re satisfied to move ahead a little at a time as long as we’re always moving forward.” Sheet Music, perhaps the most widely adventurous album of what would become a wildly adventurous year, would more than justify that claim. … Three hit singles spun off the record, and most of the other tracks could have followed suit; it says much for Sheet Music’s staying power that, no matter how many times the album is reissued, it has never lost its power to delight, excite, and set alight a lousy day.
