Compressor vs normalizer

The Rocksteady plugin is a compressor, not a normalizer. The main problem with a compressor is that, in boosting the volume of quieter sounds, it reduces the dynamic range of the music. This can be useful to make recordings for car audio, where background noise is high, but is not what I am looking for.

I want to "normalize", that is to increase the volume of all sounds, without reducing dynamic range, so that the loudest sound level will be the same for all songs in a given folder.

Any other suggestions out there? I hope I won't have to plunk down $70 for Roxio CD Creator Platinum...
