* Music/TheBeastieBoys followed up their bestselling debut, ''Licensed to Ill'', with ''[[NewSoundAlbum Paul's Boutique]]'', a psychedelic showcase of the group's rhymes backed by a mountain of samples compiled by The Dust Brothers. ''Paul's Boutique'' contrasted with the frat-bro attitude of ''Licensed to Ill'', which the Beasties [[OldShame immediately denounced]]. As a result, ''Paul's Boutique'', while getting good reviews, was a commercial failure when it was released. However, it set the tone for the group's later work, which enjoyed more success. Eventually, the album began to be regarded as [[VindicatedByHistory a rap masterpiece]].

* The Roots ''are'' this trope. Except for their 1993 debut and 2004's "The Tipping Point", just about every one of their albums has garnered rave reviews from both critics and fans (not to mention numerous Grammy nominations). And yet, thus far, the only album they've released that has achieved Platinum certification is 1999's "Things Fall Apart.", and even that took nearly ''fourteen years'' after release to reach that platitude. Meanwhile, except for 2002's "Phrenology", none of their other albums have even reached Gold certification yet.
* Singer/songwriter Nicole Atkins. Her 2007 debut "Neptune City" was heavily acclaimed by music critics, with some even predicting she would become the "next big thing" in pop. But [[ExecutiveMeddling an unexpected delay in the album's release]] along with its resulting underpromotion by her then-label Columbia Records quickly [[ScrewedByTheNetwork doomed]] the album to low sales (it didn't even chart on the Billboard 200) and an almost complete neglect by End Of Year lists despite how well reviewed it was. The following years were equally unkind to Atkins: her backing band "The Black Sea" left her in 2009. She released two more studio albums that were well received by critics but performed poorly sales-wise. And in 2012, her home city of Neptune, New Jersey was hit by Hurricane Sandy.
* The album ''Resurrection'' by the rapper Common[[note]]known at the time as "Common Sense"[[/note]]. Upon release in late-1994, the album was praised by critics for its thoughtful lyrics and mellow-yet-jazzy style of hip hop. Unfortunately, while the album is widely considered to be an underground classic among rap and hip hop fans (even being listed as one of The Source's "100 Best Rap Albums" in 1998), it sold very poorly. It debuted at #179 on the Billboard 200 and then immediately dropped off the charts. Nonetheless, its influence on underground hip hop (most notably The Roots - who, coincidentally, are also listed on this page) is undeniable.
