Collection update. June 29th

As you all might expect, I've been doing some buying lately.  While garage-saling and secondhanding in Illinois, I picked up an American copy of the Hard Day's Night soundtrack and Pink Floyd's debut The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, both on vinyl, and Pearl Jam's "Not For You" single on CD.

And today, I went to my favorite record store and bought a trio of Coheed and Cambria albums (only two are sequential, but from what I can tell so far, the story isn't really in the lyrics anyway).  In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth is OK, but I don't really see what's supposed to be "prog(ressive)" about the music.  It sounds just a step or so above modern rock, with the only major difference being the subject matter of the lyrics.
