The Courage of Others is the third studio album by American folk rock band Midlake. It was released on February 1, 2010, on Bella Union Records. The album sleeve pays homage to Andrei Rublev, a 1966 film by Russian writer and director Andrei Tarkovsky.
In 2014, System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan noted that he was a passionate fan of the album, stating: "[The Courage of Others is] phenomenal, and this is a band that I think could get up to that level of writing where they’re creating albums that just work every time. Unfortunately, I didn't like any of the albums they had previous to that one, or the album they came out with afterwards. They hit their groove with this one, and then the singer left right afterwards. I was so compelled by them that I got in touch with [Tim Smith] because I wanted to hear more, I could listen to ten albums like that. [...] I think I freaked him out, I was way too passionate."
