I'd just add that such a wide variation is not typical for your average CD.  
Normally quality 5 would average pretty close to 160 kbps over an entire 
track.  With ambient/environmental stuff like the Half-Life soundtrack, 
you'll get wider variation like this, but don't get worried that if you use 
quality settings that your average bitrates will be just completely
