Becoming X ‎(Cass, Album). Virgin Music Canada, Virgin Music Canada. 7243 8 42587 4 0, V4 42587. all right as far as trip-hop goes. some tracks are really good, but some stray from the sound the band should carry through the entire album. i actually bought this thinking the Spin Spin Sugar version was the long dance remix, but i was wrong. could be improved, but still not too bad.

Tracklist. 96 Web homepage Record label: Clean Up, Virgin Genre(s): Rock. 70 Music-Critic Score How the Music Critic Score works. This laid back hip pop track, which I am sure many of the readers have heard, features a low, driving bassline, a simple keyboard lick, and above all, Kelli's vocals. The album starts out with that cool bass sound familiar to the Sneaker Pimps on "Low Place Like Home". This repeating bassline/melody is one of the catchiest on the album

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. Other tracks seem to take a page out of Portishead’s book with 6 Underground and Spin Spin Sugar. The Sneaker Pimp’s debut offers alluring transformations that ping-pong between various atmospheres.
