AllMusic Review by

Powerful lead work and tight background vocals make All Keyed Up a winner. The Keynotes stroll down memory lane with "Just For Me" and "Everything Will Be Alright." Soul-stirring selections like the delicate "Wait On Him" gives this project a smooth spiritually moving quality. The Keynotes tiptoe their way through most of the arrangements flawlessly. Falsetto genius Charles Mclean soars to unbelievable notes on the gospel favorite "Soon I'll Be Done." Former Five Singing Star Perry Taft takes the album to new heights with the upbeat "Over There." Lead singer Willie Neal Johnson contributes his trademark calls and yells on every track. Although, his antics are distracting at times they wouldn't be the Gospel Keynotes without them. Simple song arrangements and powerful instrumental accompaniments make this album classic Keynote gospel.
