These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Elio e le Storie Tese
The Danza: Mangoni's real name is Luca Mangoni. Also, a couple of early members used their real, funny-sounding surnames (Cortellino and Zuffellato) as nicknames.
Keep Circulating the Tapes: during their 1998 USA tour they recorded four short episodes of a miniseries called "Vite bruciacchiate", about their fictional discovery of the lost tapes of a 1940s band who "invented" many musical genres that were born only decades later. This miniseries was broadcasted only once on the Italian state television, two years later, late at night and without any advertising. Since it was never reprinted in any format, it can only be found on old VHS tapes or on some P2P servers.
Sophomore Slump: absolutely inverted. "Italyan" is cited as EElST's best effort to date and is often put in lists of the best Italian albums ever by some critics ("Los Sri Lanka" is not counted as 2nd album for the reasons stated in "Stylistic Suck").
