LP= Full album, up to40 minutes long, or double album up to 80 minutes long.

EP=Demo type album to build up hype for the bands new album. 4-5 songs.

EP = extended play
LP = long play

Yeah thats exactly right. The terms actually came from the vinyl days and they are just terms that have stuck in the industry all these years.

EP's are shorter and tend to be around 5 to 7 songs. While the LPs are longer and tend to be 8+ songs.
