November 10, 2008 We receive several hundred CDs a week at All Songs Considered and do our best to listen to a bit of everything. But there's only enough time and space on the show to cover a tiny fraction of them. That means a lot of great albums get missed. Fortunately, as we compile our ballot for the year's best CDs, NPR listeners have been helping us find some of those buried and overlooked musical gems. On this edition of All Songs Considered we share some of those picks: the best of the CDs we missed this year, including music from Flobots, Department of Eagles, Human Highway, and more.

July 7, 2008 Self-produced by The Helio Sequence, Keep Your Eyes Ahead attests to a four-year maturation. With a seamless track sequence, the band creates a euphoric mixture of Dylan-inspired indie-rock and electro power-ballads. It's a surreal dream of musical experimentation that proves that less can be more.

April 22, 2008 When The Helio Sequence set up in KEXP's studio with just one guitar, one drum kit, and two microphones, few expected such a full sound to emerge. Many challenges faced the band as it made Keep Your Eyes Ahead, yet its end result on CD and in the studio reveal focus and power.

April 15, 2008 Singer Brandon Summers' vocal cords had been severely damaged following The Helio Sequence's last album and tour, necessitating a long period of recovery. Wrapping shoegazer rock in '60s doo-wop, "Keep Your Eyes Ahead" is his passionate plea to maintain focus in the face of long odds.
