Ball Of Confusion is an example of the psychedelic soul style, inspired by the success of Sly and the Family Stone, that marked most of the Temptations' singles following the 1968 firing of singer David Ruffin and his subsequent replacement by Dennis Edwards. It can also be considered a kind of proto-rap song, as many of the lines are spoken or intoned, rather than sung. Ball Of Confusion is also noteworthy for its overtly political themes, something that Motown songwriters were generally encouraged to shy away from throughout the companys 1960s heyday.

The song tries to make sense of the chaos and disorder pervading the times. Ball of Confusion is chaotic: a singer darts in with a few lines - or a few words - before another singer comes in to take his place and the lyrics jump from theme to theme in a disjointed manner. The song is utterly insane and perfectly displays what so many people were feeling in the late sixties and what many people are feeling today.
