The title Becoming X means: Liam Howe: The symbol X is one of the most abused symbols in 20th-century culture. X is a variable in mathematics, meaning that its a substitute for whatever you like. So theres that instant ambiguity and when we were in America, someone said that it could be a cross. Then someone else said it was a kiss. Plus theres Generation X, and Malcolm X, and on goes the list. Becoming X Q&A. This playlist has no tracks yet. Album release date: 1 January 2000. This playlist has no tracks. Albums from this user.

Becoming X seems to be an album ahead of its time considering how young the genre was. Only 2 years later would we see Massive Attacks superb attempt at electronic offerings and electric guitar with outstanding results. For a debut album in a growing community of trip-hop bands the Sneaker Pimps start ahead of the curve. The beginning of Becoming X would only be described as a variation of pop hooks with driving guitars such as Low Place Like Home and Tesko Suicide


Yellow Judge
Does anybody know if this reissue has the original versions of 6 Underground, Spin Spin Sugar, and Post-Modern Sleaze? I'm guessing not as the runouts seem to be match the previous vinyl reissues.
This has the same master stamp from the incorrect versions so I am certain that this will be the same and it is just another reissue to cash in on the forthcoming new album.
direct metal mastered. not ideal for quality sound. dont bother. seriously why the hell make it 2 LPs when youre going to do DMM. that is for LACQUER CUTS. if youre going to do DMM you can put it all on one LP.
Dude DMM doesn't have anything to do with RPM or how much can be fit on a side.
25 mins/side at 45rpm? Don't know what Crosley you're listening on but that would sound like crud
I'm not hardcore sneaker Pimps fan but love this album and though it is different sounding it is more appealing to me than the original, A directors alternate cut if you will. People want the old album and don't want new? That seems redundant. If anything people should be happy for a "NEW" Listening experience from their fave bands. The sound on my copy is deep, velvety and rich...I love it!
Hi awall621, could you please tell me which version of 'Spin Spin Sugar' (Radio Mix) is on this LP? I found two on youtube: this one would be OK with me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2VXe_jUxlY&list=OLAK5uy_nLy_pwiMNQrg5EE1yzsLPdkRrD2RUpGZs but there's at least one other which I don't like at all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snZ-CZb_FV8 ( (KRBE Radio Edit).Thanks a lot in advance!
The big flaw is three of the tracks are remixes without mentioning this anywhere, glad I was able to cancel my copy.
I'm sad because I'm still used to listen the original versions, even if remixes are good, it is not the album I listen hundred times. Very confusing feeling for me !!!! It's like remastering the Starwars movies every 2 years !!!
100% this. I was pissed that several sings were inferior to the OG album. Lame. Not sure whether to sell it or overpay for fucking singles that were on the original album.
I actually prefer the Post-Modern Sleaze (Flight From Nashville Mix) & 6 Underground (Nellee Hooper Edit) versions over the originals, so this is great for me!
There are some marbled green versions circulating. Anyone have info on these?
The front of my copy looks blurry, was it just scanned through a printer or something?
Infact, this is official. Just checked and it does have the printed inners and a download card - guess they don't have the master prints and just used a scan for the cover art.
Mine is like this too, sure smells like a bootleg, especially with the speed being wrong and other label errors.
Guess it's because they didn't planned to do vinyls in 1996 the sleeve master is surely a CD booklet
Isn't the entire point of a reissue to give the original record the props it deserves? I cannot understand why they would release this with different versions of songs. I don't like it — especially since there was no mention of this when I bought it direct from the label.In addition to the misprints mentioned above, Post-Modern Sleaze is at the end of side B, not the beginning of side C like the sleeve says. It's like someone designed the label and someone else designed the sleeve. And they were approved by two different people. Not really a huge deal though.That said, this sounds as good or better than any CD version I've heard. Very little noise. No distortion. I'm happy to own it on vinyl.
This reissue is crap. The bass and hihats are distorted compared to the digital copies on CD. Someone used a bad source or isn't familiar with how to master for vinyl. The Discogs sellers must be aware of this for prices to remain high. Avoid.
Read the other replies. I think some of us got a boot and it wasn't advertised as such. Remixes, mismatched 33/45rpm labels, etc. It stinks.
wonder if you got a boot, no distortion at all on my rig and the bass is super clean, deep and powerful.Goldring GR-2 (1012GX cart)Acoustic Energy Aelite3 towersParasound Zphono Onkyo TX-NR3010 amp
So this "misprint" refers to the 33rpm, it's actually the same DMM as the 2008 @ 45rpm. Concerned it might not be as good? Well I haven't heard the original 45rpm but based on the first four tracks I've listened to, and even despite a couple light pops here and there (I was listening very loud), I would highly recommend you IMMEDIATELY order a copy of this (at the time of writing it's still in stock at the original label's site and Amazon UK as well as Discogs market) and get ready for sonic bliss. Holy smokes does this one sound good, the CD has great low end too but man once you hear this 45rpm mastering it's over.
This pressing sounds perfectly clear to me. Bass sounds great and not picking up any of the hi-range distortion that can kill 90s reissues. They did a great job. I did notice that this mix is more "present" than the CD, which I always thought sounded kind of muddy. Some of the filters they used are easier to hear. Roll On is a great example where there is a ton of new texture in the mix. Might sound like distortion depending on the sound system? Not sure.
I'm with you - I don't hear any distortion and it sounds amazing to my ears. Shrug. To each their own I guess?

Just imported this from the UK. Disappointing distortion across the range, poor source.
