I am always very suspicious about new bands I've never heard of covering classics. Not even new bands, most of the time I'm generally very suspicious about covers.

Let's face it: it's so shockingly easy to ruin something as beautiful as Bob Dylan's "Knocking On Heaven's Door", but RAIGN delivered something outstanding. This cover is poppy, but in the best possible way. It's powerful and ethereal, and gives me some proper chills. Grandiose is probably the best word I could use. And her voice? Damn.

I didn't feel like researching who RAIGN is because her music gave me enough.
