"Elevation" (Song of The Day)

Today's selection is

"Elevation (Tomb Raider Mix)" from Tomb Raider: The Soundtrack (2001)

Thoughts: I always preferred this version to the album version presented in, I believe, The Best of 1990-2000 (check me, I might be wrong). Simply because this version had more energy than the lethargic album version. From the moment I heard it on MTV (they ran the video to the song), I loved how it felt so trippy and bugged out. It's just a song that I rocked out to. I love how the chorus is so bombastic that it feels like it will send the band into overload or something. The chorus itself is established with a driving guitar riff that is among the strongest sounds I have ever heard. Then, as you think you're getting higher into the chorus, the band drops down into this bridge that seems inspired out of The Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" or something. It's really cool. I love this song! Someone please explain to me why the album version lacks the kind of free-spirited energy that this track has in spades!
