"Is this album better than all the other Ramones albums?-No.Is it worse? -No.Did it shatter the Pearl Jam-laden pretentious heaviness of that era?-Nope.Will it make VH1's Top 100 Album lists?-Don't make me laugh.Will you get street cred from the guys still wearing Mohawks for owning it?-Survey says: no.Are you going to be able to avoid getting static from your neo-prog, Radiohead-listening friends when they see it in your CD collection?-Doubtful.How about your little sister, the Dixie Chicks fan?-Uh-uh.Your brother, the PhishHead?-That's a no.Is there any pop trend buoying or sustaining this music?-Gonna have to answer in the negative.Should you buy it?-Yes. YES. Y-E-S!(Thanks, Joey.)"

"As long as the Ramones are in the mood for spanish... This record is a must for anyone and everyone who ever liked the Ramones, and now even more, after Joey's passing away (by the way, bye to Dee Dee and Johnny too)...indeed, as you may know by now, Adios Amigos is the last studio album from the Ramones (fitting, since the title is the spanish for "Goodbye my Friends"), and as far as i' m concerned, is their best! Anyhow, it is MY favorite... why? up until the time i got this album, I had liked the Ramones, listened to them every now and again but i didn't own any of their records...but then I bought this and... I was hooked for a lifetime! I immedaitely became a "Pinhead" for life! (althought some of my friends would argue that it was just a matter of finally acknowledging it...) The very essence of the Ramones is here, brilliantly produced by Daniel Rey. "I don't wanna grow up" is a classic in the vein of "Blitzkrieg Bop"; "The Crusher" is hilarious, "Scattergun" is great... But above all, "Life's a Gas": even before Joey's passing, this song was always my favorite, but now... it means so much to me... I look forward to play a cover of this song with my band...
Bottom Line: the record is everything the Ramones always were, and that's the best anyone can say (and by the way, the phrase "Arriva los Ramones!" included in the sleeve is wrong... it's "Arriba los Ramones!")
GET IT NOW!It's a 9 star record!
Gabba Gabba Hey!"
