Question about ASOKA running time

I was going to order the R2 UK version of ASOKA when I noticed the running time at 150 minutes. Is this the version with several songs cut out? I thought I remembered reading in other threads that the Metrodome version was the one to get, but I'd like the full version. I thought the running time was supposed to be closer to 180 minutes or so.

...fwiw, the IMDb says: "Runtime: 155 / USA:180 (uncut version)" and "International version runs 150 minutes. Uncut version runs 180 minutes"

. . . . . .

Just checked the exact running time of the UK DVD, it is 169 min.

My guess is the 180 version is a director's cut with no song.
