PRO: Blasting to the fore with Amy Winehouse's "Rehab," Ronson is bringing soulful back, doing that "retro" thing while sounding totally contemporary, essential and original. The success of his own album, Version, proved he'd built a following in his own right, apart from Winehouse.
CON: Will neo-soul stick around? Will Winehouse stay out of rehab?
