AllMusic Review by

Para Sempre is a solid compilation of some of Paulinho da Viola's best and most famous songs, such as the typical samba classics "Argumento," "Foi um Rio que Passou em Minha Vida," "Guardei Minha Viola," the magnificent samba canção "Dança da Solidão," and da Viola's version of Lupicínio Rodrigues' great "Nervos de Aço." These and other songs on this compilation are excellent and representative examples of the elegant, sensitive, and melodic compositions that have rendered da Viola his fame. In other words: a good compilation from one of greatest sambistas of all time.
