    • This quasi-concept album (the only of its kind) from these Vermonters finally showcased their ability to convey a message with a studio album, whereas previously they only succeeded in doing so live.

    • "Black Milk" knocks me off my feet in this collection of moody and eclectic songs. Massive Attack uses samples and keyboards in a very unique way, but not all the songs pack the same punch.

iPhone Game Round-Up: Ben Stein: It’s Trivial, Burning Monkey Casino, Classic Crystal Quest, Armado

Four new games arrived for the iPhone and iPod touch on Wednesday: Ben Stein: It’s Trivial, Burning Monkey Casino, Classic Crystal Quest, and Armado.

Ben Stein: It’s Trivial sells for US$4.99 and features more than 1,200 trivia questions that pit players against the well-known actor and political pundit. The questions get increasingly difficult as players move through the levels, which are interspersed with Bonus and Lightning Rounds. Along the way, they’ll unlock prizes, hear plenty of Stein’s deadpan quips, and help co-host Cheex the Monkey climb the vine and beat Stein.

Apes also feature prominently in Freeverse’s Burning Monkey Casino ($0.99), where the company’s popular flaming simians guide players through video poker, slots, blackjack, money wheel, pachinko, scratch-n-win lottery, and 3-card monty. Players will find 18 varieties of video poker, nine types of slot machines, blackjack with one to eight decks, a lounge act, and a stand-up comedian in the casino.

Burning Monkey Casino

Classic Crystal Quest is an updated version of a game that first appeared on the Mac in 1987. It’s a space shooter in which players guide their ships through wave after wave of enemies known as Nasties, destroying them with lasers or smart bombs and collecting enough crystals to open the gateway to the next level. Pricing is $4.99.

Classic Crystal Quest

Tricky Software’s Armado ($4.99) is another port of a computer game, albeit one that was released in recent years. It’s an adventure game in which players guide a plucky armadillo on his quest to save the eagle queen from the ants that kidnapped her.
