World Party's music is hard to categorise, being a tuneful but sophisticated pop and rock combination, with elements of folk, funk, R n B and soul thrown in with a lot of sound samples to give a "recycled" feel in accordance with the band's "Green" image. Wallinger cites as influences The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, Junior Walker, Neil Young (that love of sublime guitar solos), and Prince (most obviously on the Goodbye Jumbo track "Love Street"). Wallinger sings and plays most of the instruments himself, using multitracking to create a polished studio sound. Lyrically, many of the songs feature thoughtful and occasionally political sentiments.
[...] it wasn't until [...] Goodbye Jumbo (1990) that World Party came to more widespread notice. This album yielded two significant hits - "Put the Message in the Box" (#39 in the UK) and "Way Down Now". Goodbye Jumbo was voted album of the year by Q magazine and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Alternative Music Performance in the USA.
