What's an "aluminum" capacitor?

Do you refer to a capacitor using aluminum foil or metallized film? IME, in a film and foil capacitor, tin sounds better than alu, and copper foil sounds better than both. Unfortunately, the latter type tend to be so expensive that most of us cannot afford to use them consistently.

Really good sounding metallized film capacitors include the Auricap XO and the Dynamicap, IMO.
