Looking for constructive criticism on a mix

I think the overall balance is good, maybe guitar is a touch too loud. You need to experiment with the compressor settings some more, maybe back off on the attack and release both. I'd consider adding a shaker or maracas to the arrangement. Cool song.

Yep, same deal here. Back the guitars down a bit. The drums are definitely lacking in the "punch" department. Especially the kick. Compression will help.

Very high quality sounding tracking, though. Nicee.

Compression always helps. Put one on the master bus x1.5 to 2 and boost the makeup volume a bit
This was going to be my suggestion if you are looking for punch. Overall, the mix is good. I like that you didn't overpower the vocals with the instruments, something I often hear in this style of music.

Thanks again for all the suggestions. I have been working with compression and adding a shaker into the mix.
