    ouch... just listened to the whole album and it goes downhill fast after the first 2 pieces. The rest of the album is horrid Neocrap. Love the first 2 pieces but as a whole, sad to say, it isn't very good

    I like this musically, but I hope the vocals aren't all narration.

    Sadly they are, their debut "Dio Dio Mio, Che Cosa Abbiamo Fatto" from 2003 has normal vocals and is recommended very highly.

    May I recommend my own album, with drummer Bob Leith from Cardiacs ? We're from Rome, Italy...

    "Musical definitions – who needs ’em? Actually a lot more folk than you’d think. So, this Sterbus thing, what is it? Clever pop is what it is. Starting with the wordplay of the title; “estate” is Italian for summer, and “inverno” is winter, and through the split between the two seasons and associated moods and emotions, with a CD for each, right up to the last notes of the highly-sprung Trapeze, there is a deep pop knowledge and a sharp intelligence at work here. The Feel Good Album of the Autumn." (Roger Tremwith - The Progressive Aspect)

    "Initially emanation of roman multi-instrumentalist Emanuele Sterbini (Micecars, Sweepers, Gli Illuminati) and now duo - with fellow citizen Dominique D'Avanzo - surrounded by a variable team of collaborators, Sterbus arrives at the second album with a lot of excellent ideas (it's a double), the participation of one of their idols (Bob Leith, drummer of Cardiacs, a very manifest reference, behind the drums on all tracks) and, most importantly, the ability to put so many irons in the fire - starting from the easiest ingredients: acoustic or power-pop guitars, woodwinds and keyboards of all kinds - without burning anything. Honoring without emulating the already-mentioned Cardiacs and the XTC pop feeling, in addition to that prog and art-rock closer to the soul than to the brain" (traduzione della recensione di Alessandro Besselva Averame su Rumore - 8/10)
