2 stars Canadian multi-instrumentalist and composer Robert Beriau works as a business counsultant since 1996 but has been also a music composer since early-90's with studies in Classical Music, Jazz and Rock.He has composed material and played with Canadian progsters Qwaarn but he also released a solo debut in 2005 under the title ''Falling Back To Where I Began'' on his own Beriau International Records, where he handles all instruments by himself.

Too many studies result in an rather unfocused release and a weird presentation of Beriau's musical background.At moments this all instrumental effort sounds more like an academic release than an album headed to Prog/Rock fans or any other average listener enjoying good quality music.His music relies heavily on Electronic soundscapes, grand piano performances close to Classical/Avant-Garde, Orchestral Rock and synth-based Ambient Music with plenty of sound effects.''Falling Back To Where I Began'' is a rather calm work but with a deep atmospheric background, split between smooth cosmic pieces of music and a few explosions with guitar in evidence, close to a spacey PINK FLOYD approach.The man is definitely skilled but the whole material is far from memorable at the end, maybe a bit hypnotic, failing to either impress the listener or stuck him with his headphones on.

Another mediocre one-man project, where the good skills do not translate eventually into some really good music.Approach with caution, this ones comes only recommended for those searching some good background music stuff with a cinematic film-score edge...2.5 stars.
