From experience:

Indeed lrzip has superior compression on large, files but is extremely slow.
Use if you're cramped for space. (IMHO)

Plus it's a one-file-at-a time compressor. For multiple files, you first have to round them up
in an uncompressed archive such as with tar or with zip -0, and then use lrzip.

Additionally, it offers no significant improvement if used on already compressed media
(movies, music formats).

IHTH
