I'm sure you realize this, but for anyone that may not, the old review is the USRSA 2003 review, not done by TW.
I do look forward to TW's written review.
I'm currently testing ALU in my usual gut/poly setup and tension (all things the same except for ALU, same tension, stick, etc). It is definitely a confidence boosting string; all control. Tension loss isn't too terrible as a cross.
