You’d be a fool to try and pick out a ‘most classic’ album from the hefty David Bowie discography, but it you did, Low would be a very good shout. The 1977 album, which began the Berlin-based Brian Eno and Tony Visconti collaboration trilogy, is notable for having a more experimental second side, but is fabulous all the way through.

Low marked a change for Bowie both musically and personally. Eager to kick his drug addiction, he relocated to Berlin, Germany. The end result was Low. At the time of the album's release, many David Bowie fans were confused. And some of the critics were less than receptive. But in the years since, Low has been hailed as one of Bowie's best albums. The first half of Low is upbeat songs ("Speed of Life, A New Career in A New Town"). The second half is slower, darker, atmospheric tracks ("Warszawa, Art Decade, Subterraneans"). All in all, I highly recommend Low for any and all music fans.
