Nothing personal, but I don't think I'd consider Nexus the buzz for an extended
period of time. Talk of the town for a while, sure, but then again, the same can be said of Aces And Eights, meaning many fresh groups get fans pumped for a while, primarily because people are begging for something new and exciting. Then booking manages to blow it yet again, and everyone is let down...again.
