Anything released by Orange or Halcyon in the 90s. Also: Catchup! by grif - amazing.

So many posts without a single mention of second reality. Nice one! It seems there is soul all over the place.

what does it mean "a demo has a soul" ? i suppose that it was made with love and passion. then most demo have a soul, even if you can't see it.

a more interesting question is "which demos touched you emotionally". this is something many demos totally fail, and only some demos remarkably achieve.

Substitute "demo" with "film" or "album" and the shoe still fits. Making demos is not an industry just yet.

Eh, does not compute. The music IS the soul of productions.
But, to give my 5 cents:
Eeeeh, that demo-slideshow by Allien Senses (learn to spell, you russian geeks!) - yeah, the one with Chernobyl. Haunting, even without the music.
so basically, judging from the comments above, a demo "with soul" means it's "atmospheric", i.e. the music is drowned in reverb :)

in that case: mfx+fr - fortnight it has more reverb than goatse
@chaos: but you had to read this thread ;)

Was it replay that did the demo that had the everything but the girl lyrics "missing"?
