    I'm still learning this too (aren't we all) but to a very crude approximation, more reverb tends to make sounds seem more "distant", less tends to make them seem "closer". For vocals at least you probably also want to control the dynamics so the level is reasonably consistent.

    Some carving of space with EQ will help things to sit "on top of" other elements in the mix. Another thing I'm still learning to do.
