      Despite some here and elsewhere saying this album was when the band were running out of steam, when divorced from the context of the very strong release that came before, Adios is still a very good album. There's a sort of burnt-out charm to it, like on Sycophant's sweaty dub palpitations and Today's airy morning-after laments. Elsewhere, Full Worm Garden is a memorably weird Ogre feature, DIY is a bombastic KMFDM-by-numbers throb, and while a lot of the other tracks have a bummed out nihilism, Adios remains an essential (if odd) entry into their discography.

        KMFDM's tenth studio effort, and a scraping of the bottom of an amazing career sadly. Where Symbols lacked, that goes double for Adios. Now instead of two big singles and a collection of random songs, you have one big single and a collection of random songs. This is still a good album, but if you listen closely it feels like KMFDM 2.0 really started here (Esch and Gunter had minimal at best participation on this album, this one could have been the original KMFDM vs. SKOLD). While Tim Skold is an incredible musician, and added to the tracks he was on with symbols, here it just feels like he's cluttering up what KMFDM had going on prior to his entrance. Though "D.I.Y" is a KMFDM classic track as worthy as any other single in their catalog, so many of the other tracks on the album are forgettable. As hard as it is to go into how every single track is worth listening to on the Nihil and Xtort is about equal as to how difficult it is to bother mentioning much on most of Adios. The Major Label, non-KMFDM, MDFMK release makes for a much more interesting and entertaining listen than Adios does. Also "A-Go-Go" (A B-Sides and rarities collection) and "Retro" (A greatest hits collection) are worth picking up as well, especially A-Go-Go as it includes some of the original Money demos and song-quality wise almost stands up to the Nihil/Xtort era. The only really important thing about this album was it was the last of the original KMFDM career, but If this was KMFDM trying to say goodbye, sometimes goodbyes are better left unsaid.
