I've always thought it was unfair to lump EPs and full length albums into the same ranking scheme. It's far easier to come up with 4-6 great songs than it is to come up with 10-12. Hence I break out the EP for a top 10 list of their own every year.
Here are my favorite EPs of 2011:
10. Said The Whale- New Brighton
9. Broken Bells- Meyrin Fields
8. Whitebrow- All's Still Before the Storm
7. The Cautioneers- Where We Are
6. The Decemberists- Long Live The King
5. The Schomberg Fair- Mercy
4. Yukon Blonde- Fire/Water
3. Revolver- Parallel Lives
2. Black Devils Brigade- 3 Miles Long, 66 Feet Wide
1. Freedom Or Death- Ego
Honourable mentions: Andrea Caswell, Teenage Kicks, Data Romance, The Murder Act, The Watson Twins
Canadian acts are in red.
