New songs do echo back to earlier material, which is cool. The last album was not good imo.

Is a mini album the same thing as an EP?

No, a mini-album is longer than an EP, but shorter than an album.

Mini album sounds like such a throwaway. Just record a couple more songs or call it an EP

I'm pretty sure I've bought several 8 song EPs before

It usually comes down to what the band says it is, and/or what is counted as an album or an EP. Obviously, genre and length sometimes go hand-in-hand. A powerviolence/grindcore EP may be 10 songs long.

I guess you could make the argument between 7/8 songs which is an EP, or if it's a mini album or album. Alice in Chains' Jar of Flies is considered an EP, I think. Though I'm pretty sure 8 songs would be considered an album by today's standards. After the Burial's In Dreams is considered an album, 8 songs long.

I'd probably say a mini-album is a more cohesive EP, but is cheaper than an LP.

The Early November's "For All Of This" springs to mind. Lol it's an EP for sure.

I liked it a lot too, but it kind of dragged towards the end. The first part of the album definitely has some great songs, Why I Cry is my jam haha.

Can't argue with that!
