åÁAlarma!åÊis the fourth studio album byåÊChristian rockåÊbandåÊDaniel Amos, issued on Newpax Records in April 1981. It is the first album in theiråÊåÁAlarma! ChroniclesåÊseries and one of the earliest records in theåÊChristian alternative rockåÊgenre.

åÁAlarma!, released weeks after the band's theåÊBeatles- andåÊThe Beach Boys-influencedåÊHorrendous Disc, took a decidedlyåÊnew waveåÊdirection along the lines ofåÊElvis CostelloåÊoråÊTalking Heads.

Lyrically, the album contains social commentary so harsh thatåÊCCMåÊdescribed it as "perhaps the most scathing ever put out by a Christian label."[2]
åÁAlarma!åÊwas the first of aåÊfour-part seriesåÊof albums by DA entitledåÊThe åÁAlarma! Chronicles, which also included the albumsåÊDoppelgÌ_nger,åÊVox Humana, andåÊFearful Symmetry.
