Since We've Become Translucent is the sixth studio album by the grunge band Mudhoney, released in 2002. The album was the first to be recorded after the departure of their original bassist, Matt Lukin, three years earlier. It was also the first to be released through Sub Pop after the band returned to the label.

Since We've Become Translucent marked a prominent change in the band's sound. The album was a departure from their typical garage-oriented sound and features a relatively accessible Rock sound. However, on tracks such as "Baby, Can You Dig the Light?", Psychedelica, Synthpop, and Jazz are explored.
