As one of the pioneering bands of the San Francisco rock scene, Quicksilver Messenger Service brought a blend of psychedelic rock, blues, and folk influences to their music. Their self-titled album is a quintessential example of late 1960s psychedelic rock, characterized by extended instrumental passages, improvisation, and a focus on electric guitar work with significant blues and folk influences.The band’s emphasis on guitar interplay, particularly the dual guitar work of Cipollina and Duncan, became a defining characteristic of their music. Their use of improvisation and extended instrumental sections reflects the influence of live performances on their recording style.

While not achieving the commercial success of some of their contemporaries, the album has been praised for its musicianship and its embodiment of the San Francisco sound.
