This new offering from Mark Owen is awesome, i love it, the man has a unique talent for making original music, i love every track on the cd from the quirky four minute warning to the soulful baby im no good, they are all classics. Looking at the charts it seems this cd didn't even make the top 40, which is a shame as he will probably be dropped from his record label again, if he were a bit more commercial this album would sell by the bucketload,as it is a great talent will be confined to the bargain bins. Listen to this album and forget any preconceptions you have, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Already heard this on the smashhits site and I can't wait to buy it next week! There are some great future singles on here Kill With Your Smile and Close To The Edge, another personal favourite is Baby I'm No Good (sob!). I've seen Mark live twice this year and he's not lost how to captivate the audience. Welcome back Mark,you've been missed.

This album at the time of writing, hasn't even been released yet, so my review is based on the 11 track promo I have, and seeing Mark perform most of the tracks on his LIVE tour around the UK in Sept/Oct.
What can I say....the album is fantastic! If anyone quite liked Mark's 'Greenman' album, then go out and buy this, you won't be disappointed. Mark has grown up, his voice has matured tremendously and he seems to have found his musical style. From the opening track Four Minute Warning, right the way through to his new single Alone Without You, to crowd pleasers such as Crush, Head in the Clouds and How Do You Love, each and every song is instantly memorable and for different reasons. My favourite song is....ok well, I dont have a favourite, as I love them all, but it has to be a close race between Head in the Clouds, Crush, Kill With Your Smile and Close to the Edge. Watch out for the heart breaking Baby Im No Good. As a song writer, I find Mark to be on a par with Robbie, to me he outshines Gary Barlow as I find Mark to be a very clever lyricist, much more versatile than Gary, and able to write a variety of songs, rather than just middle of the road ballads that your mother will love.
After truimphantly winning Celebrity Big Brother last year, the show confirmed to the nation what we fans have known for a long time - that Mark is the nicest, most unassuming, unstarry person you could ever wish to meet.
Mark's only crime (in some people's eyes, not mine I might add) is that he was once part of a famous boy band called Take That. Well, so was Robbie, and look at him now. Its time for Mark to lose the stigma of being an ex-boy band member and gain the respect that he truly deserves.
Buy it now. You won't regret it.

I was 32 when Mark's first album was released (so more a follower of U2 than Take That)and remember thinking at the time "What a shame he hasn't got what it takes be a solo artist - he seems such a nice lad" HOW WRONG I WAS!!!! "In Your Own Time" is an album of songs I can't stop singing. I love it, the kids love it and even the hubbie is coming round to it. These are intelligent songs written and sung with feeling. There are a lot of potential singles and I hope the fickle pop market does not leave this talented man floundering again. Buy it and see for yourself!

I was an obsessed Take That fan when I was young, and I bought Mark Owen's debut album "Green Man" as a direct result of this. I wish I hadn't. It was cheesy, naff, downright weird in places, and it finally made me realise that Mark hadn't really got much of a voice.
Years later I bought "In Your Own Time", somewhat warily, on the back of the first single, "Four Minute Warning". And boy was I glad I did! Mark has finally found his little niche in the pop world, choosing to combine catchy choruses and heartfelt lyrics with a little of that 'grunginess' he strove for in "Green Man" but never really found. This album is a complete winner from start to finish. My favourite track, "Gravity", is a stand-out, sure-fire hit, and there are many others I could mention that are well worth your listening time. And THIS time his voice works with the melodies.
I would not be exaggerating to say this album has not left my stereo in months. Don't be afraid of Mark's boy-band tag. He's grown up, and this is the result.
(But former lovers of Mark's Take That cuteness beware: He uses the F word!!! I think I've been scarred for life...)

I bought this album from amazon and it was a fantastic purchase. Those who may have heard Mark Owen's previous album "Green Man" will notice a very big change in his style of music, his self-penned songs now having a much more rocky edge. Whether or not you were a fan of "Green Man" or whether you haven't heard Mark Owen's material before, the album is definitely worth listening to. A combination of great melodies and clever lyrics make this a fantastic album!

Songs are really slow moving unlike take that or Gary Barlow's Solo Albums. And could be more catchy and upbeat
(UPDATE AFTER 1 WEEK OF LISTENING I LOVE THIS ALBUM AND ARE REALLY CATCHY)

I've always liked Take That member Mark Owen, he always comes across as a genuinely nice guy in interviews and I really enjoyed his top 5 UK hit single 'Four Minute Warning', which is, after all, very catchy. The song is taken from Mark's second album 'In Your Own Time' (2003) and the whole CD is worth purchasing. There's also another single on here, the very emotional 'Alone Without You, which was a top 30 hit briefly, but deserved to go higher.

Friends always laugh when I tell them that I like this album but Mark is a very good singer with a unique voice. He is also a very talented songwriter and this album contains a good mix of songs, some are quite jolly, upbeat and inspirational like 'Turn the Light On' and 'Gravity', whereas others really will tug on your heartstrings like 'Pieces Of Heaven', which remains one of my favourites on the album. With such a diverse range of styles, I think that there is at least one track on here that will appeal to everybody.

'In Your Own Time' peaked at no.59 in the UK album chart but deserved to go much higher (do you notice a pattern emerging?). I only wish that Mark Owen would release more solo albums, because despite of his sometimes lack of chart success, he IS an excellent singer/songwriter.
