I'm gonna admit that Dirt is probably the better album and more involving listen, but I prefer CP any day. Only one song on Dirt outranks much of CP, being Rooster.

I like Counterparts but there are no duds on Dirt. Counterparts has some forgettable stuff such as Speed of Love and Everyday Glory.

I listened to Dirt earlier this week. I’m not sure if I listened to Counterparts this year. Seriously

Grunge to me, just sounds dated.  It was a necessary era in the musical timeline but it was so morbidly depressing.  Thank God the resurgence of metal happened!  Counterparts wins against the whole Genre and it ain't that great...

I agree that grunge is depressing as hell. I liked it at the time but yes it’s very dated.  Counterparts wins for me.

No contest. Counterparts. After all, "Everyday Glory" is on that album. 'Nuff said.

The Rooster is a very good song but Counterparts has a ton of very, very good songs (Alien Shore, Speed of Love, Cold Fire, Everyday Glory, Between the Sun and Moon).  Counterparts gets my vote.

I enjoy AIC a lot, but it's hard NOT to choose Rush here. So that's what I did. LOL!
