Agreed, it is 100% possible to make a good aluminum bike. Or steel.  Material engineering and manufacturing trump the actual material; there is no "best" material until you wrap some parameters around what you want.  IMO it wouldnt really be a fair test to pit a "cheap" alloy bike vs a premium carbon offering for the same reason you mention; it would say more about the manufacturing and design than material; apples to oranges.
