AllMusic Review by

The third volume of the Slow Jams series from SPG is on par with the first two sets, featuring a fairly random assortment of ballads and mildly up-tempo R&B hits. Its biggest fault is that it often hops across a couple decades (and therefore sounds and production values) from track to track. When you put on a disc of slow jams, you don't want to have to deal with the skip button, you know? Regardless, there are plenty of enduring singles here, including Isaac Hayes' "The Look of Love," Chaka Khan's "Through the Fire," Patti Austin and James Ingram's "Baby, Come to Me," the Chi-Lites' "Oh Girl," and Anita Baker's "Giving You the Best That I Got."
