Joaquin Phoenix's album is a 'Beatles, Oasis, Bowie-style' masterpiece. Seriously?

In 2007, before Joaquin Phoenix quit acting, grew a beard, dubbed himself a hip-hop star, and infamously appeared on David Letterman's show, he recorded an album that he didn't release.

We know what you're thinking, "Thank heavens."

But the musician that worked on it with Phoenix dubs it a "Beatles, Oasis, Bowie-style" masterpiece.
