Propeller by GRICE is reviewed in Classic Rock presents PROG magazine (May edition 2012)
'Propeller is a revelation, its glorious textures and instrumentation drawing the listener in
as it flows seamlessly from one song to the next, never losing its intensity.
The four-part title track is particularly breathtaking.
With Propeller Grice has created a genuinely extraordinary slice of experimental rock.'
