The singer sounds frail and uncertain throughout, which occasionally makes for some uneasy listening — particularly with the overly polished production. As a farewell, it lacks the gravity of Johnny Cash’s defining work. But that hardly diminishes the emotional punch of hearing one of the rock era’s defining voices fade away.

I don't agree with the statement that Glen sounds frail and uncertain throughout. I think Glen sounds great most of the time. I do agree that the production is sometimes a bit too polished.
On the other hand, Allmusic gives Adios 3,5 out of 5 stars.
Adiós ultimately seems more like a coda than a grand farewell, with the album displaying a suitable modesty that suits the somewhat reduced circumstances of the artist. But it's also a potent reminder of Glen Campbell's talent, style, and musical legacy, and this album is the recorded curtain call he truly deserves.
