IMHO the sound is consistent. It's missing transparency, but apart
from some "freshness" (boosting high frequencies at 10 K might do the
job, didn't test it, since I didn't listen to a song completely) and
from making the kick a little bit louder, the mix IMHO is ok.

When there's the need to ask, then the mix isn't transparent! Less
compression and more EQing with knowhow IMHO is needed.
