For me, the best song off Counterparts (whatever that is) MIGHT beat the best off Dirt (whatever that is).
But overall, Dirt bests Counterparts.
Additionally, the worst two off Counterparts (SoL & EG) are easily worse than whatever the worse two on Dirt are.

Tough albums to compare, really.  But in terms of each band's catalog, Dirt is critical and Counterparts is mostly forgettable (compared to other albums).

I re listened to the first half of Dirt recently....well at some point the emotional taxation took a backseat to the music and well...yeah sorry it's better than CP. CP has The Speed Of Love, Between Sun And Moon, and Leave That Thing Alone where Dirt has Junkhead, Godsmack, and Sickman. The better written and performed songs clearly lie with AIC in the case of the worst songs on either, not to mention the best CP can offer is Double Agent, Cut To The Chase, Animate, and Nobody's Hero, where Dirt has Rooster (better than everything else here), Them Bones, Dam That River, Rain When I Die, Down In A Hole, and Would?
