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.
The first album was Private Revolution, released in 1987, which yielded two minor hits in the UK, "Private Revolution" and "Ship of Fools", however the latter was to reach number 4 in Australia and number 27 in the USA (when the album charted).
