When compiling my list of favorite albums of 2018, I had to ignore a lot of great music (because I defined “album” as a musical release with 10+ songs).
To include some of that music in an end-of-year list, I’ve put together this list of my top 10 EPs from 2018 (with EP defined as a musical release with 4-9 songs). Note: due to ties, this list includes 11 EPs.
Methodology: I reviewed all the songs I loved that were released in 2018. If they were released on an EP, I rated each song on that EP on Upbeat’s 5-point scale (5 = love, 4 = like; 3 = neutral; 2 = dislike; and 1 = hate).
Upbeat’s Rating Scale
I then took the average of all songs on each EP to calculate my rating for that EP overall.
Here are my 10 favorite EPs of 2018.
My genre preferences are indie pop / electronic / rock. If you love this music, join Upbeat, and add the music you love–I’ll probably love it too!
