Mi plačemo iza tamnih naočara (trans. We Cry Behind Dark Glasses) is the first and only studio album by the Serbian post-punk/darkwave band Dobri Isak, released by SKC Niš in 1986. The album, originally released on compact cassette and with a limited printing of a hundred copies only, rapidly sold out and became a collector's item. The original album cover features an image of fictional comic book superhero The Phantom.

In December 2009, the album was re-released by PMK Records with seven bonus tracks of unreleased material.[6] The following year, PMK released the limited edition reissue of the album, featuring the band logo written in red on the album cover and a black CD, in 150 copies.[7]
