The Red is the first full-length studio album by South Korean girl group Red Velvet. It was released on September 9, 2015 by SM Entertainment and distributed by KT Music. The album concept focuses solely on the group's "Red" image, which stems from the group's name and concept, where "Red" shows their vivid and bold image.
"Dumb Dumb" is described as an uptempo dance track with an infectious hook and groovy beat. The lyrics describes a girl's awkwardness in front of the object of her affection, comparing herself to a mannequin. "Huff 'n' Puff" is described as a pop dance song that sings about waking up from a dream and coming back to reality, like Alice falling down the rabbit hole. "Campfire" is described as an R&B pop song that has an ear-catching rhythmical guitar intro.
The lyrics of "Red Dress" tell a story in which a girl wears a red dress and clumsily but slyly tempts a man who treats her only as a child, while the song "Oh Boy", which is a soulful R&B pop song, showcases the singing ability of the members. "Lady's Room" is an R&B based pop song about the sisterhood between girls and the happy moments they share.
The album also features "Time Slip", which is a hip-hop based R&B song with lyrics that describe the laziness and listlessness that one feels while going back and forth between dream and reality in the morning, "Don't U Wait No More" which revolves around a girl trying to get closer to her hesitant boyfriend, "Day 1" which describes the feeling of new love by combining bass and piano with the vocals of the members, and "Cool World" which is a synth-pop song with hopeful lyrics that tell the listener to love their uniqueness and quirks. All 10 songs represent the bright, bold "Red" side of the group.
