It hadn't gone down well with Geffen Records that the previous album Donna Summer had just done for Polygram to fulfill her contract, "She Works Hard For The Money", proved a much bigger smash than the two LPs she had released for them. It was a natural decision to let Summer and Michael Omartian team up for the follow-up album "Cats Without Claws" which unfortunately proved to be Summer's first flop since her breakthrough, charting only at #40 in the US and failing to reach gold status. It's hard to understand why - although it didn't contain a song rivalling the catchiness of "She Works Hard ...", it is overall a more consistent and satisfying album with a sparkling production and strong songwriting. Needless to say, Summer's strong voice soars effortlessly on all the tracks.

One explanation might be the choice of the first single, being a cover version of The Drifters' "There Goes My Baby", rather than one of Summer/Omartian's new compositions. Although it was a perfectly fine recording (it reached #21 in the US charts), it was better suited as an album track than a flagship single. The infectuous opening track "Supernatural Love" would have been a more logical choice. It was released as the second single, and although heavily promoted by Summer it only charted in the lower regions of the charts. The calypso-flavoured - and equally enjoyable - "I'm Free" seemed to have been considered for the third single release. Summer performed it in a couple of TV-shows but it would be five months until a third single was released in May 1985, and the choice had fallen on the dark, unusual "Eyes", itself a very strong recording but hardly single material. By then, it was all too late to salvage the album.

"It's Not The Way", a catchy Hi-NRG track, was another missed single just as the opening track of Side 2, "Oh Billy Please", a strong blend of pop, dance and rock with a glowing performance by Summer. The title track opens with an interesting soundscape and spoken verses, leading to a catchy chorus. The closing track, a stunning rendition of Reba Rambo's "Forgive Me" that earned Summer a Grammy for Best Inspirational Performance.

One of Donna Summer's most solid albums - and one of her most underrated too.
