What do you guys prefer? An EP or a full length album?

I used to think that EPs were a waste of money since they average out at about 5 songs but of late I've started to prefer them over a full length. Most of the times the tracks on an EP are all quality songs so you get say a good twenty or so minutes of songs that are all worth listening to. With full lengths you get some good tracks and at times the rest of the songs are fairly bland and only seem to be on the album to bulk up the track listing. Very rarely do I buy an album that contains all quality songs on it.

Full-Lengths. Preferably Jewel-Case'd CDs.

MOTHER FUCKER I TYPED OUT A LONG FUCKING POST AND ACCIDENTLY HIT BACKSPACE AND NOW IT'S GONE GOD DAMNIT

FUCK

Ugh... anyway... what I basically said was that EPs are generally used by bands when they are shopping around for new labels so it's usually the best shit they can get. Full lengths generally have filler because they have to meet a certain quota in a limited amount of time.

If I'm buying, I prefer to get more for my money. But music wise I don't have a preference. EPs can be great or suck ass. Same with full lengths.

I will also say that AFI's EPs are great. If they were full lengths with the same quality throughout, they would be my favorite AFI albums.

Full Lengths all the way!!! Most EP's have a shitty sound quality IMO. My personal fave EP was Mayhem's Deathcrush. the only good one

If most EPs you've heard have shitty sound quality it's because the bands don't pay for their music to sound decent.

EPs sound no different from full lengths... It's just a smaller collection of songs.

There's a difference between Demos and EPs, FC.

I prefer full lengths but there are a few EPs that are great too that are like full lengths. Some notables include:

NIN - Broken
Boards of Canada - High Scores and Twoism
Ulver - A Quick Fix of Melancholy

Full lengths all the way. EPs can be good (somtimes really good), but to me full length CDs 9 times out of 10 are more fullfilling, in my personal experience/opinion, are of better quality and better for the money. It can depend on band, and EPs aren't bad if you're looking to get a feel for a particular band. Like anything it varies, but I'm more of a full length person.
