The Time is the second album from British pop band Bros and the follow-up to the successful debut Push. It was released in 1989 and was their first album as a duo (Matt Goss and Luke Goss) due to the departure of Craig Logan earlier in the year. It was also the first album to feature Matt and Luke as co-writers, along with Nicky Graham.

The album reached #4 in the UK and spawned four hit singles.[2] It ended up being certified Gold.[3]
