    [The songs on Majenta] confirm Edgar's inimitable creative talents.

    Quite possibly represents Edgar's most full-blooded work yet.

    As difficult as it is to take Edgar seriously at times, so earnest is he about his sexualised sonic seercraft that resistance is futile. In short spurts, Majenta's kosmische perv-core satiates.

    Although Jimmy Edgar isn't the first (or best) to do neo-electro (Chromeo and DāM-FunK come to mind), Majenta shows that he might just be the most believable.

    For much of Majenta he seems content to lie back and think of Prince. [Jul 2012, p.71]

    Unfortunately, more than mediocre tracks or throaty sexual goofs, what does in Majenta is its scattershot nature. There's no flow to the way the album's sequenced, to the point where it seems purely arbitrary. Furthermore, Edgar seems so concerned about skipping between genres that he neglects to refine any one specific sound; even the strongest cuts rarely rise above "nice try."

    It's hard to get too hot and bothered. [No.88 p.55]
