In Your Own Time is the second studio album by Take That band member Mark Owen. The album was released on 3 November 2003, nearly seven years after his first album. Due to the popularity of In Your Own Time, his first album, Green Man, was re-released two weeks later, with the addition of five unreleased tracks. Two singles were released from the album: "Four Minute Warning" and "Alone Without You". The album sold 17,805 copies in the UK. The album peaked at number 59 on the UK Albums Chart, 26 places lower than his debut album.[2]

The album has a pop rock sound. A reviewer from MusicOMH favorably compared the album to the work of folk rock musician Jeff Buckley, saying that Owen had been "clearly listening" to his music, and that listeners would realise this if they would remove their preconceptions about Owen.[3]
