AllMusic Review by

On this 10" mini-album, the Flying Nun label's most obscure post-industrial act transformed their bleak electro sound and embraced the dub influences hinted at in their earlier albums. The result is an uplifting exploration of On U Sound-style digital dub and the oblique poetics of their masterpiece "Amalgam" stripped of the gothic darkness. Sensible is an elegant rock/electro hybrid similar to fellow Flying Nun acts Bailterslace and Headless Chickens. Similarly ahead of their time, it was some decade later that Tricky and Massive Attack would popularize this hybrid sound.
