Fear is a 1974 album by John Cale. It was the first of three albums for Island Records, all of which were released in a period of just over a year. During this time Cale was also producing records for other artists, working on albums such as Squeeze's eponymous debut and Horses by Patti Smith, one of the most influential of all protopunk records.

In addition to his lead vocals on Fear, Cale also played keyboards, guitars, viola, violin and bass, and was joined by Richard Thompson, Roxy Music's Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera, and other artists signed to Island.

Keith Morris was responsible for the photography.

"The Man Who Couldn't Afford To Orgy" was released as a single, with the non-album track "Sylvia Said" as the B-side. (The original single mix of "Sylvia Said" has never been reissued, since the "The Island Years" CD set uses a new remix.)
