This review from Paste Magazine is a really excellent one; I wouldn't expect anything less from this publication.
The writer first puts Glen's last three albums including ADIOS into thoughtful perspective.

Glen Campbell: Adiós Review
Paste Magazine

Ghost On The Canvas was a tearful farewell embrace on the platform, See You There worked as the final wave from the departing train.

Adiós feels instead like a love letter left behind, a rush of goodbyes and appreciations and parting thoughts jotted down to make sure he (Glen) leaves nothing unsaid.

Campbell proves once again that he’s his generation’s finest interpreter of others’ songs....

The lone misstep is the opening cover of Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin’” which lacks the youthful optimism in Harry Nilsson’s definitive 1969 reading.

...nearly every song has at least one heartstring-tugging allusion to departure or mortality, and for the most part, those lines work. Campbell delivers them with the kind of class and grace that characterized much of his career.

Regarding the biographical song "Arkansas Farmboy" written by Carl Jackson (scroll down to listen to the full music video):
...it’s hard not to imagine the farm as Campbell himself. And when he sings of the “five dollar guitar/that led to a fortune/I’d trade just to go back in time,” it’s even harder not to wish that he could.

The reviews of ADIOS are already coming in!

Album Review: Glen Campbell’ ‘Adiós’
Sounds Like Nashville
By Chuck Dauphin
June 5, 2017 - 9:17 AM


“Funny How Time Slips Away” gets a beautiful treatment, along with a cameo appearance from its’ writer, Willie Nelson.

He (Glen) tips the hat to his longtime friend Jerry Reed on a sterling cover of “A Thing Called Love,” and sounds as traditional as he ever has on his take of George Jones’ “She Thinks I Still Care.”

...the dramatic “Adios” is sure to get much of the attention, given its’ title – and Glen’s passionate performance.

...of the four Webb cuts, perhaps the most poignant is a sobering version of “Postcard From Paris,” which includes his three children with wife Kim. If you can make it through these heartfelt lyrics, and not be moved by their emotion and bittersweet-ness, you need to check your heart – to make sure you have one.

...the Roger Miller-written “Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)”: a performance for the ages....

...the Jackson-penned “Arkansas Farmboy”: a nostalgic look back at his formative years. The song may be the most moving of the lot here, because in spite of all that has happened, that boy from Delight, Arkansas achieved all of his boyhood dreams, and then some. And, thankfully, nothing will ever be able to change that. This is simply one you’ve got to hear – and hear again!

Glen Campbell’s upcoming album, ‘Adiós’, includes a song written by Roger Miller, "Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me)", with a short intro by Roger.
Pictured are Glen and Roger rehearsing at the Governor’s Mansion in Nashville, Tennessee for a television special that aired on March 10, 1974.

Glen Campbell: The Rhinestone Cowboy sparkles to the end...
Express (U.K.)
By Clair Woodward

This is a great article about the selection of songs on ADIOS:
Glen’s wife of almost 35 years, Kim, explains how the album was made. “The songs on Adios were ones I’d heard Glen sing around the house for the last 30 years, and they’re favourites of his that he wished he’d gone into the studio to record – we got there just in the nick of time.”

...Glen and I were visiting Carl (date/year unknown) and discussing the things Glen wanted to do before he left this world, and the songs he wanted to record.

"One of them was Jerry Reed’s version of Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, the song that Glen always played when he picked up a guitar.

“We made a list of the songs, and as we were sat there, Glen started singing Roger Miller’s Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me), and I had a tape recorder on me and recorded it – that’s the version that you can hear on the album.”

If you only read one article or story about Glen's upcoming album, this is the one to read.
Kim Campbell and Carl Jackson share the backstory of the making of ADIOS as well as Carl's long association and special friendship with Glen.

About this new album for fans:
Kim says that she hopes that the fans who have supported Glen -- and their family -- will like what they hear. “I think they will be pleased. I think they will hear the same beautiful phrasing and interpretation that Glen is known for. I think it’s a gift to the fans, and also to future generations. I’m just so pleased that we were able to do it.”

'Adiós' is Glen Campbell's 64th studio album and features four songs including "Adiós" written by Jimmy Webb.

Glen and Jimmy are pictured here on the cover of Glen's official March 1975 International Fan Club Newsletter. According to the club's secretary, Rosemary (who would be referred to as an administrator or club president these days), this picture was one of a series of photos shot at Jimmy's house for the cover of Glen's 1974 album, 'Reunion: The Songs of Jimmy Webb'.

The release of 'Adiós' will offer in part another reunion of Glen and Jimmy's music. I won't say "final reunion" because Jimmy may have audio recordings of his own with Glen Campbell. If he does, then perhaps we will be able to hear these recordings one day in the future. Also, he may yet release video footage from a concert he and Glen gave at Feinstein's in New York City.
