    All we can say for sure is that here is a talent in bloom, the sound of ideas finding shape, winding out in all directions.

    Asbury's first more widely-distributed works as Axxa/Abraxas sounds like a lost psych-rock gem from the late '60s. [Feb/Mar 2014, p.70]

    It's a charming album from an artist with an obsessive/compulsive love for writing shambolic, vaguely psych-infused rock songs but it doesn’t, distinguish itself from any number of similar records from this sphere over the past few years.

    It's certainly an album that takes a little work to crack, and that work centres around Asbury's unique vocal performances.

    There's enough here to suggest a breakthrough is coming, but Axxa/Abraxas isn't it.

    An accomplished debut but surely only the mere beginnings of a promising career.
