Well, that's highly dependant on the source material - you shouldn't
expect such results to be the common case.
As far as I can tell, compression is roughly proportional to the average
signal level, and the amount of high frequencies.
2:1 or 1.5:1 are more typical of the files I've compressed with flac.
