Technically, that could be construed as that's a producer that's doing it, [I'm] editing the arrangement of the song.

"But [more often] I'm just a guy trying to listen, because the song is too long for me, it's losing my attention, or it's just redundant. I just think of it as, like, I'm just a dude giving you a quick first impression, and you're rolling with it."
