New book presents top 100 albums by New Jersey artists

Published 2011-05-15

It may come as a surprise to some, but New Jersey's music history is so much more than Bruce Springsteen. In his new book, award winning music journalist Gary Wien makes a case for just that by listing the 100 best albums by New Jersey artists between 2001 and 2010. Of course, even without having read the book, I'm sure Bruce takes up a fair amount of pages, but you will also encounter other international stars like The Gaslight Anthem and My Chemical Romance as well as lesser known artists like Keith Monacchio, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Anthony D’Amato. The book is called Are You Listening? and will be available on June 1 from and online booksellers.

Gary Wien has previously published the book Beyond the Palace about Asbury Park's music scene, and he is also known as contributor to Backstreets Magazine.
