With Dio they had a more Hard Rock sound in the late 70s.
Later with Graham Bonett and Joe Lynn Turner they developed a more Melodic Rock/AOR sound.
Personally I like all three, but I would vote Joe Lynn Turner (his work with Fandango is superb as well). Difficult To Cure and Bent Out Of Shape are Melodic Rock masterpieces.
