Welcome to the second part of our 'End of Year' features for 2010. Today we'll be looking at our favourite EPs that have been released in the last twelve months. Maybe it's a sign of the times, but often or not it was our miniature buddies that provided the most amount of joy over the last year and although we've never compiled a 'best of' list for EPs, this year certainly seems like a good place to start. Below you'll find our 45 (don't ask) favourite EPs of 2010, in no particular order.
