Again not sure if this is the right forum but is there like a limit to the number of songs an EP can have before it's an album? Wiki says that Eps are typically so many minutes long etc but it doesn't actually say if there are any standards or regulations that define EPs and albums, or are you allowed to just do whatever you want in this area?

EP is just a term left over from the vynil era to describe a record to be played back using Extended Play mode. The records were smaller in diameter and needed the turntable to turn at a slower rate to play back properly.

The term has just carried over to CDs and generally just means a CD with 4 or 5 songs on it. The point at which an EP becomes an album is kind of ambiguous but once you get to 8 songs or so, it's safe to say you're in album territory.

These days EP means "Extended Preview"..... It doesnt carry the same meaning as from the days of records and turntables.... If you record a EP it basically means your one step away from an album, but better quality then a demo....
