Well yeah....It's a CD and it has music on it. That's my idea of an album =)

NO, as I consider albums = LP's. The Greatest Hits is just a compilation of songs that originally appear on the albums. I don't consider the Baghdad EP an album, neither, as it's an EP.

IMO, there are 4 basic types:
- Single (just one song, perhaps with remixes or b-sides on it)
- Album = LP (a compilation of many unreleased songs)
- Compilation (a compilation of previously released songs) = GREATEST HITS :p
- EP (a compilation of a few unreleased songs)

That's just my point of view :)

WHat exactly does "EP" stand for? I mean, I know what an EP is, I just don't know what that means.

It's an album for people who has never listened to Offspring. Not for fans.

I don't consider greatest hits compilations as being albums, but that's my take on it.

It's a greatest hits album. Unless you think it's a compilation

EP = Extended Play

Take a look at: http://psychcentral.com/psypsych/Extended_play

:)

PS: I didn't know it meant "extended play" 'til yo asked for it. I always thought it was "estandard play", but that's SP = Standard Play :p
