31) "The Mid-Morning Recording" The Spinto Band-'Moonwink'
Certainly one of the best bands we've come across in the 21st century, and listening to this album this late night, I have come to terms that they really can't do wrong. Another great Spintonic release from start to finish.....Every track is solid and I should have placed it higher on the "Best of 2008" list than third. Since the band is returning to Texas for the first time in over a year, we've decided to play this in their honor. We can't wait for more sodas, teas, root beers, and obviously more great music from one of the best pop bands ever assembled. There's lots of great music out there, but the humor, talent, and passion for songwriting that runs through this group is pretty much unmatched in these modern times. Quite honestly, I don't know of any other band of brothers that come close to matching the talent and wit of The Beatles, but they are definitely the closest I've come across so far. That is saying a lot, but it is honest and true. "I just heard a song on the radio and it made me think of you".
Michael - MFL
