Crew overboard with spin up

I have done lots of Crew overboard exersizes as part of basic and intermediate cruising courses.  Something I don't get to practice is COB with a spin up.

Here is Yachting Monthly's take on it.




They seem to be advocating for cutting the spin away and saving your friend.



Here's another video of a full crew doing a recovery.  They have lots of hands so they pull the spin in by brute force.





Any other opinions?  I have heard of a method of getting the spin down and then using the engine to return upwind to the crew.  Couldn't find a video though
