Flick the Vs is a studio album by Scottish singer-songwriter King Creosote, released on April 20, 2009 on Domino Records and Fence Records.

A limited edition version of the album includes a five-track bonus disc.

The Fence Collective official website wrote the following upon release:

The King returns with his millionth album, and comeback for Domino, Flick The Vs. Ten tracks teaming with dry wit, suave one liners, stunning poise, great hair and a nice ass - all held together by that voice, accordion, guitar and drum machines. Produced by Paul Savage at Chem19, and recorded with Jon Hopkins, The Earlies, Steve Mason and some Fence Collective chums - it's got everything that you could possibly want from a King Creosote record but were afraid to dream of.
