The album received favorable reviews from critics. John DiBiase, of Jesus Freak Hideout, gave the album 4.5 stars out of 5, and called it "a worthy curtain call for Audio Adrenaline and an absolute must-have bookend for a fan's collection". James Christopher Monger, of AllMusic, gave the album 4 stars out of 5, while praising singer Mark Stuart's vocals on the new tracks. Russ Breimeier, of Christianity Today, gave a favorable review, but was disappointed that the compilation wasn't more apt for a farewell record. He wrote "Audio Adrenaline deserves a comprehensive double-CD anthology to do them justice. Adios feels more like a sampler and an overview for casual fans, not the snazzy farewell intended for the longtime faithful."
