A few months ago I got the album "Rising" from Rainbow, and really liked it a lot and got me interested in other works from both DIO and Ritchie Blackmore. Though I already knew a bit from Deep Purple, I just got also "In Rock", and given it's reputation I expected something as great as "Rising". Well, as a matter of fact it's still to early to give any real judgement over it, but it didn't have the same immediate impact Rising did. However, it gave me the idea to make this poll, though I don't feel myself ready to vote yet. Perhaps in a few more weeks I'll be doing another of rising against "Machine Head", which I expect to get by then.

In Rock for sure, but both are fantastic records.

I'm gonna go with Rising. I've never really understood the love for In Rock. I like Machine Head a lot better, but anyway, the last two epic songs on Rising make it a clear winner.

Agreed in regards to Rainbow Rising as well as In Rock not being on the same level as Machine Head. Rising's "A Light in the Black" has always been a heavy rock favorite.

In Rock is a really solid album, but Rising is one of my all time favourites.

I honestly can not choose on this one. I really love the music on both albums, and cannot choose one over the other.

Rising BY FAR!! A landmark album! With the two long-ish songs and the stellar keyboarding of Tony Carey, I'll even venture to say it's proto-prog-metal.

Although I'm a huge hard rock fan, Rising for some reason didn't knock me down, maybe I haven't listened to it enough.
I adore In Rock but no vote in the meantime.

Really difficult choice, this one. "In Rock" is an absolute classic featuring one of rock's all time greats - the sublime "Child in Time". "Rising" however is a magical album that I loved a great deal back when it was released. Strangely it is the older album that today resonates with me more although I will always love "Rising". I think that in terms of importance to rock music as a whole "In Rock" takes the podium and due to that it gets my vote.

I've never owned the album so always assumed it was Don Airey playing keyboards. I may well get the deluxe edition as it has the extended version of Stargazer with the keyboard intro.

It's close but it has to be "Rising".

If I'm brutally honest, then none of these albums really do anything for me. They're good, but I don't listen to them anymore. They were hugely influential in that they spurred me on to further discover 70s rock, and since then(must've been almost 20 years ago) I haven't looked back. 
No vote though.

Not a huge Purple fan tbh.

Wow, it's ages I didn't listen to any of both, I don't even have them on CD only on vinyl, but Rising was my favourite of the two.
And yes it was Tony Carey on keys, he did a great job on that album.

Yes, it's a shame Blackmore seem to have a downer on keyboards at the time, which is probably why they're mixed so low on most of the album. I saw Rainbow (at the Rainbow) and the keyboard player (I can't remember which one it was at that time) was hidden behind a pillar and mixed so low you wouldn't have known he was there.

Wiki says  Tony Carey too but my album said Don Airey. I've never heard of Tony Carey.
