Rolling Stone - 10/16/97, pp.108-1103 Stars (out of 5) - "...SWV's diva croons and tight, soul-heavy harmonies cut a killer track....Even in their ultraproduced hip-hop jams, SWV are true to their R&B roots, i.e., they're obsessed with romance..."
Entertainment Weekly - 8/15/97, p.74"...this third effort finds the sistas lifting their voices with rollicking dexterity and torchy soul, returning to what got them their multi-platinum status..." - Rating: B+
Vibe - 10/97, p.170"...Throughout RELEASE SOME TENSION, they alternate aggressive-submissive sentiments more than Mike Tyson did during his marraige to Robin Givens....[T]his album could seduce for days with the simple power of the groove..."
Rap Pages - 10/97, p.98"...Armed with a warehouse full of production firepower...TENSION shows an insurable amount of accord between the artists and producers..."

Coko, Lelee & Taj are three women who just can't keep from cranking out R&B hits. In 1996 the trio released their second album and just one year later they're back with a third, RELEASE SOME TENSION. Like their previous album, this one displays the vocal strengths of SWV, but this time around there's more of a danceable sound to the proceedings.
RELEASE SOME TENSION also teams SWV up with two of the hottest producers in R&B, Sean "Puffy" Combs and Timbaland on "Someone" and "Can We," respectively. In an attempt to cover all the urban pop bases, some high-powered guest rappers are featured, from Lil' Kim to Snoop Doggy Dogg, adding a hip-hop feel to several of the tracks. And, of course, SWV fill their ballad quota with "Rain" and "When U Cry," where they exhibit the vocal talent that has made them mega-stars.
