Pointing the Finger is a studio album by the rock artist Kevin Coyne which was released in 1981.

The album was described by Mark Cordery of the New Musical Express:

"The themes of this LP are generally the hoary old ones of 'Alienation'; the difficulty (and in many cases the tacitly accepted impossibility) of communication, and the insubstantiality and hence inadequacy of 'Religion'. Dealt with here in the 'soul-baring' 60's singer-songwriter style; mostly stripped of imagery, and completely of metaphor, it's a bleak but uncompellng vision. Not to say a narrow one."

The title track dates from 1977 and Coyne's musical "England, England".
