For what it’s worth, I like the version with the audio glitches; it’s what I first encountered, way back when, and is part of the music. It adds a kind of percussive texture in voices that are not out of place amongst the other instruments. You also get the longer intro.
That said, the volume on the YT version is way too quiet, especially alongside the other tracks.
I consider it among the best video game soundtrack compositions ever; it has such a memorable theme with a fantastic build, leading in to a melody line that repeats against expectation. Like, you a get a phrase that’s good, whereas an average composer would have probably modified it slightly in the following bars here the thing is conspicuously repeated. But it’s not laziness; the bridge shows that it was done purposefully with its payoff, holding a different relationship to the main section than if it had been permutated. In the following section the main voices capitulate, showing that it is indeed a masterwork.
