    I mean like, I have the new brit Femme Fatale album, ripped it to FLAC.

    I used MAX to convert it to ALAC and everything is fine, but when I checked the bit rates of each individual songs in iTunes they were different, is it supposed to be like this or is it some problem with MAX and how it encodes them?

    Like one song would have 900 something and another song would have 1100 something, it's weird.

    That's normal. More "complex" songs require a higher bitrate in order to reproduce all of the original sound.
