"The disc is chock full of slick jazz/funk fusion hip-hop beats that
plays out like a soundtrack to the life of the Clutchster
himself...Walking Backwards is nice change of pace from the norm as far
as instrumental discs goes, with many using more samples and
synthesizers than actual live instrumentation, with Hopkins apparently
manning nearly all of the instrumentation. As a result, Clutchy proves
that he's hipper than your average bum off the street, and he can play a
mean flute...and drums, and organ, and harp..."
