Phobia is the twenty-fourth and final studio album by English rock group the Kinks, released in 1993. It was their final studio album before they disbanded three years later. It is also the only studio album credited to the Kinks which does not feature former drummer Mick Avory in any capacity; though he left the band in 1984, he still played on individual songs on both Think Visual and UK Jive.
