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!

Somewhat amusing that the whole grunge era is seen as humorless and depressing. However, this is one of those albums that is. Staley sounds like he's almost celebrating his decline into heroin. Aside from the awesome sounding Would?, no thanks.

Counterparts.

Dirt is just an emotionally taxing and draining listen. Rooster is the only song on the album with any spark of hope, and it's still pretty downtrodden. I don't care for CP too much in the grander scheme of things, but I probably care for it more than Dirt.
