Fuel for the Fire was Naked Eyes' 1984 follow-up album to their successful début. The band had Top 40 success with the first single off the album, "(What) In the Name of Love", produced by Arthur Baker, which reached #39 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 and, in a remix by Baker, #35 on the Dance chart. The album peaked at #83 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.

While a modest hit, it had not matched the commercial and critical success of their debut; in their home country of the UK, neither the album nor its single had charted. Baker remixed another track he had produced for the duo, "Sacrifice", but the record company never released a followup to the Top 40 lead single and Naked Eyes disbanded following the underwhelming reception.

The album was released for the first time on CD in 2013 by Cherry Red Records.[1]
