The mix is crowded and everything sounds like its centered in the stereo field.
Compression on everything is overwhelming, there's no room for the mix to breathe.

Compression on overheads is the most notable, I would aviod compressing the overheads because it makes them sound washed out. But if you must compress the OH then I would use a multi band compressor sparingly.

I think you should take another stab at this and start by addressing those problem areas. This is a tough mix for anyone, so don't get discouraged. The more you mix the better it will get. Sometimes you just have to tell yourself that "it can sound better", because it always can.

Best.
