Becoming i is the second and final album by the disbanded American alternative metal band Ünloco. The album was released on March 11, 2003 via Maverick Records. Produced by metal-veteran, Andrew Murdock, the band's sound took an unexpected, somber turn toward a more melodic, metal-acoustic style. The second offering included two acoustic tracks -- "Watching Me Slip" and "Texas". Sonically, the new style combined screams with resolute, poetic candour, surprising old and new fans alike.

"Failure" served as the album's single and had a music video which gained minimal airplay.

Despite positive reviews from critics and the promotional support of their label -– with appearances at Ozzfest 2003, Music as a Weapon II, and a tour with Korn -– the album failed to meet commercial expectations and the band disbanded later the same year. The reasons behind the disbandment are still a mystery, though Unloco deny that they were dropped by their record label Maverick.

The song "Bruises" is featured in the True Crime: Streets of L.A. soundtrack as well as The Matrix Reloaded soundtrack. The song "Crashing" was featured on Madden 2004. A live version of the song, as well as "Empty," was included on the Music as a Weapon II compilation CD in February 2004.
