Alarma! is the fourth studio album by Christian rock band Daniel Amos, issued on Newpax Records in April 1981. It is the first album in theirí«ÌÎ_í«í?Alarma! Chroniclesí«ÌÎ_series and one of the earliest records in theí«ÌÎ_Christian alternative rockí«ÌÎ_genre.

í«í?Alarma!, released weeks after the band's the Beatles- and The Beach Boys-influencedí«ÌÎ_Horrendous Disc, took a decidedlyí«ÌÎ_new waveí«ÌÎ_direction along the lines ofí«ÌÎ_Elvis Costelloí«ÌÎ_orí«ÌÎ_Talking Heads.

Lyrically, the album contains social commentary so harsh thatí«ÌÎ_CCMí«ÌÎ_described it as "perhaps the most scathing ever put out by a Christian label."[2]
í«í?Alarma!í«ÌÎ_was the first of aí«ÌÎ_four-part seriesí«ÌÎ_of albums by DA entitledí«ÌÎ_The í«í?Alarma! Chronicles, which also included the albumsí«ÌÎ_DoppelgÌÎÌ__nger,í«ÌÎ_Vox Humana, andí«ÌÎ_Fearful Symmetry.
