EP's are shorter.....

EPs - generally around 3-5 tracks.

Albums - generally 6-7+ tracks.

Length, and often production, are what make the difference.

EP stands for Extended play.
LP stands for Long Player.

EP's usually have 3-6 tracks.


thanks.

doesn't Deliverance by Opeth have like 6 tracks...but then the tracks are REALLY long, so it's an EP that's longer than most albums...?

It's not specifically the amount of tracks.. It's just that EP's are generally shorter than albums.

Fantomas have an album which is 72 minutes long, but only one song..

so there are no specific guidelines? hmmmm

sounds like a bit of useless categorisation to me.

An extended play (EP) is a vinyl record, CD, or music download which contains more music than a single, but is too short to qualify as an LP. Usually, an EP has around 10–28 minutes of music, a single has up to 10 minutes, and an album has 30–80 minutes.

Is that how long the actual song goes for? Or is just like, 10 minutes long and the player says it's 72?
