Not entirely true. If the spinup is caused by a user action, in this
case the next-track action, the disk spindown timer will be used. If the
spinup is caused by the MP3 buffer fill, it will spin down immediately
after filling the buffer.

So the next-next action will be faster if the disk spindown timer is
long enough.
