Clic is a 1974 album by Italian experimental musician Franco Battiato. The album, released on the Island Records label (catalogue ILPS 9323) is a brooding and intense collection of instrumental/vocal arrangements. Dedicated to Karlheinz Stockhausen, the music has stylistic similarities with Philip Glass and Tangerine Dream but is more lyrical and with elements of musique concrète. It was later re-released on CD with a different track listing.
