I got the sense that Bona was coasting a bit here. He is such a talent and Shiva Mantra and Good TImes featuring Frank McComb hit the mark. But a lot of others are slightly bland--definitely avoid African Cowboy. Richard's skills on synth and drums are not quite a match for his vocal and bass prowess (and even the latter is not heard much) based on this outing. If this is your first Bona, go for Tiki. But keep checking out what he does next and try to see him live.
