Nautilus biography
Founded in 1998, this all-instrumental electronic outfit originally combined the talents of Martin Ludwig (keyboards, synthesiser, sequencer) and Werner Strätz (guitars and mandolin). A couple of years later, Ralf Obel joined in with his samplers, synth and sequencer, and then Ralf Weiden later replaced him. Often compared to EROC, NAUTILUS's music borrows as much from GROBSCHNITT, TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE as from the bluesy antics of DAVID GILMOUR, PETER GREEN or RORY GALLAGHER.
They have released five albums to date, the first four catering mainly to the electronic-ambient crowd - what with their simple grooves and world music leanings. Their fifth, however, is more likely to be of interest to progheads. "In Search of Castaways" indeed emphasizes the psych-prog elements rather than the ethnic ones, as did the band's previous albums. This one centers around two epics, one of which is the excellent 22-minute title track. All tracks provide memorable melodies and nice harmonies, great keyboard work from Martin Ludwig - who sometimes dishes out some VANGELIS-like bombast - and excellent GILMOUR-like guitar work by Werner Strätz who plays a leading role on some of the tracks.
Recommended if you're into smooth, well-crafted electronic music with a crystal-clear production. Fans of mid-period TANGERINE DREAM (80s, 90s) who long for a bit more melody (and less droning) should give NAUTILUS's album a listen.

3 stars At first when I listened to this I was surprised to see NAUTILUS under electronic, but that changed fast. The main difference is that this instrumental album has a lot of guitars, mandolins and maybe other acoustic instruments involved, sometimes being the main focus on songs, and sometimes they just fill out the electronic soundscapes and sequences in the background. Some like "Burning Head" or "Strawberry Dream"are almost pure folk songs, with even some electric guitar. It's definitely an enjoyable listen even if it's maybe too ambiental for my liking, similar category of music like MICHEAL ROTHER which people listen to mostly listen while driving, reading or similar activities. The guitar led pieces are also not too repetitive or boring either, I think that through the album they can get pretty emotional, for some reason I thought of DAVID GILMOUR while listening "Winding Road" for example. Overall a successful mix of ambiental guitar and electronic music I think; it can be beautiful a few times but don't expect to be blown away.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Couple of years ago I have reviewed another album, Solar Moon, by this German electronic band. As I promised there, now I have finally come across this one - still unrated! - , towards which I had somewhat proggier exceptations, due to the band info text. Well, I can say there isn't really much more Prog nature in here. Also, in relistening to Solar Moon I came to a conclusion that it wasn't as "trippy" or joyously up-beat album as my review said. Both albums fall quite harmlessly into the mainstream of contemporary New Age/ Electronic music, or more precisely, into that department of the genre where music has recognizable rhythm structure and melodies, in opposition to the more ethearal New Age wing.

That said, both of the albums are very nice in their genre. Maybe this one being slightly better. It has an underwater/ diving theme, which reflects in music, keeping it mostly calm and atmospheric. Of course the underwater theme has always been very popular in Electronic or 'space' music, for example TANGERINE DREAM's Underwater Sunlight, BJÖRN J:SON LINDH's Atlantis - Bilder från en Ö, and Diving Dreams by G.E.N.E. (the latter artist not in PA), all of which actually have impressed me more in bygone years (when I was more into Electronic than nowadays, though).

To some degree Nautilus' music suffers from the lack of fresh ideas and surprises, ie. the album is indeed pleasant but quite samey on the long run, especially if compared to TD's aforementioned album. Nautilus is more clearly New Age music, even though electric guitars are part of the relatively rich sound palette. 67 minutes is a challenge to keep the music exciting within an underwater theme, but still there could have been some more adventure-like twists in this album. One must mention the 22-minute title track: it flows nicely from start to end and in the end you wonder if it really was that long, but do not expect very progressive journey from it. Some shorter tracks don't add anything notable to the whole but not exactly bad eggs in the basket either. If you like New Age/ Electronic and have enjoyed for example the output of the German label Innovative Communication ( -IC- in short), why not check this one out.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Yet another untouched discography. This is my first Nautilus, but I will later hear In Search of Castaways (2004) which the band info says to be the most interesting from prog's point of view. This one falls unquestionably into the beatful Electronica; more groovy, and even disco-ish here and there, than 80s/90s Tangerine Dream, not to mention numerous makers of serene music that can be labeled as New Age. This really couldn't. Have a look at the track titles and you get the image of the music's atmosphere. Welcome to the Sunny Side of the Moon! Let's have a happy trip up here!

Actually it's the backside of the Moon you see in one picture, but the musical trip is careless and hippy anyway. Synths, sequencers, samples and electric guitars are our vehicles, all polished and greased up well. Many tracks extend beyond 6 minutes, the longest even 13:54, (and yet nothing seriously progressive) but the groove doesn't fail. Instead this music seems to give some energy while being a kind of hypnotic - though you better do something else too, while listening. Pretty nice 72-minute album in its field but totally "non-essential" for us progheads: 3 stars.
