Through the years, however, New Model Army have experimented with a great number of musical styles and nurtured numerous different inspirations. As a rock band they generally stand out of the crowd having a greater emphasis on the rhythm section, which often contains references to R&B. Besides punk, they have also been classified as post-punk, folk rock, indie rock, gothic rock, rock noir and even metal amongst others. Their music is often regarded as intense, angry, and powerful, some might even say militant. However their repertoire is much wider and more subtle than that and also includes quieter, more emotive and softer material often featuring performed acoustically. Thus it would be inaccurate to simply classify them as any of these genres. Rather one should recognise them for what they really are; a very versatile underground cult rock band with many different musical roots. They have toured and recorded constantly for over 26 years and continue to do so and are considered a seminal influence by many contemporary younger rock bands.

Their lyrics are always very poetic, but still manage to express political and humanitarian messages. Songs like 51st State earned the band cult status in movements against American imperialism, which ironically made it more difficult for the band to tour the US. The contradiction and search for deeper truths explored in NMA's lyrics raise them head and shoulders above most rock bands and stem from lyricist Justin Sullivan's deeply religious (Quaker)and literary upbringing. Poetry (ancient Greek: poieo = create) is an art form in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content. ...

Lyrically Justin Sullivan has had a very close relationship with British artist, novelist, and poet Joolz Denby, who is often credited as a consultant or Muse and sometimes even co-writer. She is also responsible for the characteristic artwork on their covers, merchandise, t-shirts etc. The Arts Council/Yorkshire Museums & Galleries international touring exhibition of Denby's artworks for NMA and their memorabillia is entitled with some accuracy 'One Family, One Tribe - The art & Artifacts Of New Model Army', and is unique in its presentation of the art of a working rock band.
