Best EPs of 2017

Normally I don’t get exposed to too many EPs within a year, and if I did then it would be from a band I really respected or loved. If that were the case, and I really loved the EP then it might end up finding its way onto my “Best Albums” list. The length of an album is never an issue with me, as long as it is good.
            2017 surprised me a bit; I was exposed to a greater number of EPs that I not only liked, but found good enough that any one of them could compete with the Full-Length releases I loved this year. Some of these I liked as much as my #1 Album!

Every year the list and my process was honed, culminating in 2017 where I have decided to launch a sort of blog where I can review stuff throughout the year and using a blog format as a vehicle to share my thoughts on music, among other things.
I’ve decided to start with a list of songs, as opposed to albums. Cause everyone can relate to having songs within albums that they may not have liked as a whole. Another note is that, I will not have a strict numerical system; if I have a list of 3, 10, or 17 songs or albums which I found stood above the rest to me, then that will be it. These lists will be varied among genres, I can’t really describe why my musical tastes are the way they are …
