One of the decisions I need to make in evaluating the music from 1980 and beyond is whether I should consider EP's. In those days, many bands issues singles and EP's and sometimes either never released a full album or the songs from these EP's and singles never saw a full length release.
The other problem with EP's is many of them are live or cover songs, and thus not really in the spirit of this blog.
So my solution is to name an EP of the year. This way I can review and enjoy these releases, but not judge them against the full length records.
