..by the way...
I am puzzled.
And I'm going to tell you why.
I was supposed to publish on my own blog The Rituals' full-lenghts, introducing them with something that sounded more or less like:
"I used to listen to punkrock when I was 15/16.
Then you grow up, you change your music tastes, your habits, you think you got over a period of your life and a certain kind of music too...
One day though, when you have already turned 25, a record called The Past Twelve Months comes out, upsetting all you certainties about your life and making you re-discover a deep love for (what I personally call) punkrock"
This happened last night.
This morning instead, I was surfing through the SOV website, when, by mistake, I found this review, written by you:
THE RITUALS. there are moments in your life in which your musical taste drastically changes. bands, genres you were used to listen to daily, instantly start to sound boring, annoying or even disgusting, and you have to try something fresher, newer, and totally different. i've personally never been that much into punk rock music (which actually andrea loves), i always have been more into screamo/emo violence stuff, post-hardcore oriented metalheads band or sorta. later on i've focused more into grungy stuff, postpunk, postrock, new wave/dark music and eventually, some punkrock.
the rituals is a band that took me in the fabulous world of punkrock music, and i will never be thankful enough to these guys for this.
So, what should I do now? Deleting everything? I don't want people thinking I copied and pasted your words!

...You know what?
In my opinion you should keep the email you sent me, translate it and using it as introduction in your blog.
That's awesome. I mean, finding out you have written the same things someone else did, either about a band or a record, means that they're working. And they are doing really good.
