Wow. Is buying music really that bad in the US? Almost all of those are common as fuck and usually very cheap. Online that is.
In terms of Europe, Germany is the worst place to buy music. Their prices are just stupid. Although that mail order place with the yellow and black signs whose name I can't remember who turn up at all the festivals aren't bad... they often have a bunch of 5 euro stuff, which is usually old and cheaper elsewhere, but at least it's not too extortionate.
