The end of 2018 is nigh, so it's time for end-of-year lists.

Our first is a list of the top 10 E.P.s of the year. For clarification, our definition of 'E.P." here is any release that isn't a full length album ... meaning that we include singles, maxi-singles, mini-albums, demos and E.P.s up for consideration. Additionally, links to reviews of the selected releases in question can be found under each title for ease of access.
