Wow! I purchased the album this week after seeing Mark in Manchester a few weeks ago and after just 24 hours of the album being in my hands, I am already a big fan of it. "Green Man" didn't do much for me really apart from Clementine, and "In Your Own Time" was a very listenable album, but his latest work is a total triumph and one that Mark should be very very proud of. Tracks to shout about could easily include all of them, but I really do favour "They Do" "Hail Mary" and the intro to "Wasting Away" is just beautiful, I remember hearing that for the first time at the gig and the whole room stood silent in awe of its great craftsmanship. Mark has proven with writing and co-writing this entire album that he is truly a great songsmith and I can't wait for future work from Mark. He certainly hasn't fallen and I think he'll be in the industry for a long long time.

Sitting in my friends room, three songs came on in a row. I believe they were four minute warning, child and believe in the boogie. I was instantly entralled. I asked him who it was that I was listening to, never expecting the answer I was to hear...Mark Owen...yes, ex of Take That Mark Owen! So decided to get his album and give it a go and to be honest, the boys done good. I honestly believe that had he never been in Take That, Mark would have a much better reputation and solo career then he does now. One thing he does have is far more talent then Robbie Williams. Give Mark a shot and I am sure you will be pleasently surprised.

I've been a fan since day one and he never disapoints! Every track is one for the "repeat" button and if like me, when it isn't in your Sterio at home, it'll be in your car. Buy it and support him so we can keep having more of the same! Saw him in a gig recently - He really delivers, just like his album.

It's a shame that Take That member Mark Owen's third (and so far last) album was a commercial failure, falling under the top 75 in the UK - I'm torn between which one of his two strongest solo albums is the best, 'In Your Own Time' (2003) or 'How The Mighty Fall' (2005).

Despite it's lack of chart success, it has to be said that the high profile Take That reunion, which ultimately overshadowed this solo release from someone who far from reached the heights of Robbie, or even Gary Barlow, couldn't have helped matters in the slightest.

However, little Mark proves once again that he is a great singer who can write good songs, both quirky and emotional. I would probably say that this is more of a rock album that his other two (his top 40 debut 'Green Man' was distinctly Britpop, and 'In Your Own Time' was Pop/Rock), but it's hard to categorise his records for sure, because there is much variety. The only thing that tracks like the off-the-wall 'Waiting for the Girl', and the bouncy single 'Believe in the Boogie' have in common in terms of musical style is the same distinctive, high-pitched voice.

All of the tracks on this one are worth repeated listens, 'Sorry Lately' is one of my favourites but the song that really impresses me is the flop single 'Hail Mary', with it's big production, but ultimately a gentle ballad, and one of Mark's all time greatest songs that really should have been a huge hit for the baby-faced man. The one single that was a sizeable hit (briefly dipping into the top 30) was 'Making Out', which was the real feel-good pop song here, and another standout. In a fair world, it should have become an anthem for the summer.

If you enjoy Mark Owen as a solo artist, then this album (ultimately his least successful) is something of a real work of art, and well worth the price you may have to pay for what is currently something of a rarity.

Buy this album - you'll be so glad you did....
The songs are all very different but all equally excellent from the jaunty 'Waiting for the Girl' to the beautiful 'Sorry Lately'. Mark puts huge emotion in to all his songs and the result is outstanding.
Should you have any pre-conceived ideas about Mark's music, leave them at the door. I promise you that by the second listen, you'll love it.

I've always liked Mark Owen but felt his voice was not too strong- but sounded great with others members of Take That - (who I think sound really good just with Mark, Howard and Gary! ) . Hence , I was intrigued by his solo work- and credit where it is due How the Mighty Fall is a good album- Mark's voice sounds variable- but he more than proves he can sing a good tune in his own right on many tracks. I wouldn't say I a massive fan of his solo work- but equally if you like Take That, and Mark- I'd say give it a try! Overall, he has also proven has a talent for song writing too- and although I only give three stars- Track 6. 3:15 ids A STAND OUT TRACK- 5/5! Other tracks i particularly like inc 8. Wasting Away , and then 9. and 10. worthy of 3/4 /5. So. well done Mark! If I had produced this album- I would be proud.
