Mihai Nicolae Chereji Such a departure from Becoming X, but ironically becomes the foundation for IAMX. Amazingly dark and atmospheric, endlessly replayable. Favorite track: Curl.

Alize Rodriguez One of the best experimental albums in triphop/electronica/whatever you want to call this genre. Very haunting lyrics, very beautiful songwriting, lovely hooks. Absolutely a must listen. Favorite track: Lightning Field.

about

Splinter is the second studio album by English electronic band Sneaker Pimps, released on 25 October 1999.

It was the first album to feature founding member and principal songwriter Chris Corner on lead vocals, replacing the band's previous singer Kelli Dayton.

NME described Splinter as "a staunch refusal to cash in whatsoever on previous fame" and "the band's hangover after the long night of success brought by debut 'Becoming X'. It’s faintly ugly and always a breath away from self-destruction, the vision of a band who've renounced smiling at people they hate and wrestled their collective soul back from the devil."

They also singled out Chris Corner's lyrics for praise claiming "his abstract punctuation-free lyrics have the same bleak power as 'OK Computer' – strangely meaningful without saying anything", and describing the album "as compelling as it is claustrophobic".
