The auto-normalization is a final step in the mixdown, it lowers or raises the volume proportionally so the maximum has a certain value. I don't know the dB value that GB normalizes to, but most people find it not loud enough. So turn the auto-normalization off and adjust the volume with the master volume so it is maximal without clipping. That should give you a good result. Adding compression will boost the softer passages in relation to the louder ones, but it's a matter of taste whether you want that for your style of music or not.
