Ì_åÇÌ_?Alarma!Ì_åÇÌÎÌ__is the fourth studio album byÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Christian rockÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__bandÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Daniel Amos, issued on Newpax Records in April 1981. It is the first album in theirÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Ì_åÇÌ_?Alarma! ChroniclesÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__series and one of the earliest records in theÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Christian alternative rockÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__genre.

Ì_åÇÌ_?Alarma!, released weeks after the band's theÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Beatles- andÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__The Beach Boys-influencedÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Horrendous Disc, took a decidedlyÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__new waveÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__direction along the lines ofÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Elvis CostelloÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__orÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Talking Heads.

Lyrically, the album contains social commentary so harsh thatÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__CCMÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__described it as "perhaps the most scathing ever put out by a Christian label."[2]
Ì_åÇÌ_?Alarma!Ì_åÇÌÎÌ__was the first of aÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__four-part seriesÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__of albums by DA entitledÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__The Ì_åÇÌ_?Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albumsÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__DoppelgÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__nger,Ì_åÇÌÎÌ__Vox Humana, andÌ_åÇÌÎÌ__Fearful Symmetry.
