Psalms For Sinners by Jon Magussson

As I am getting closer to my 600 reviews mark, I am proud to present as my 578th review the latest EP Psalms For Sinners by singer/songwriter Jon Magnusson.  Listening to this album I enjoyed the first track Visa Fran Utanmyra that was totally instrumental, then the album brought tracks that reminded me of song tracks by The Moody Blues I enjoyed many years ago with such songs as Ode To A Friend, the title track Psalms For Sinners, and Your Dreams.  I was impressed on how well this album was written, performed, recorded and produced.  I highly recommend you give this album a listen.
