Celestial Clockwork is the third studio album by American rapper Illogic.[3] It was released by Weightless Recordings on April 13, 2004.[4] The production is entirely handled by Blueprint.[2] It features vocal contributions from Aesop Rock, Vast Aire, Slug, and Blueprint.[4]

Reception[edit]

Dominic Umile of PopMatters gave the album a favorable review, saying, "Celestial Clockwork's mystifying backdrop is an example of Blueprint's ability to hold back as a producer when necessary, but is also an expansive assortment of psychedelic beats that naturally complement Illogic's sly, off-kilter approach."[4]

Alex Henderson of AllMusic gave the album 3 stars out of 5, saying, "Illogic is one of rap's intellectuals, and the heritage that he brings to the table -- influences like De La Soul, Q-Tip, and Common -- makes for a more nuanced, lyrically complex hip-hop experience."[1]
