I think based on O-Dub's analysis, Paul's Boutique still kinda fits the bill.
Except for the fact that it was only their second album, but they were pretty huge after L2I.
Backstory? I dunno...I think they were ready to be off on a different style and they just said fuck-you to the frat boys and girls who made them millionaires off of L2I (and the record execs). Also, disassociation with Rick Rubin, relocation to west coast, etc etc.
from wiki (fwiw): "Paul's Boutique was initially considered a commercial failure by the executives at Capitol Records, as its sales did not match that of the group's previous record, Licensed to Ill, and the label eventually decided to stop promoting the album. The album's popularity continued to grow, however, and it has since been touted as a breakthrough achievement for the Beastie Boys. Highly varied lyrically and sonically, Paul's Boutique secured the Beastie Boys' place as critical favorites in the hip-hop genre. The album's rankings near the top of many publications' "best albums" lists in disparate genres has given Paul's Boutique critical recognition as a landmark album in hip hop."
They didn't even tour for the album.
