"Taking the first step into the indie-pop world can be an extremely intimidating thing."
That was from Sean's review of some album I'd promised him I'd check out and never did.
"Entering the belly of the pop-rock beast as a new artist can be an overwhelming task."
That was from yours. Sure, it's got the same sentence structure, but not much else.
Yeah, besides the fact that we both used annoyingly broad introductions, I would argue that my sentence is at least slightly more colorful and I know I've never seen whatever review Sean wrote that that quote came from.
