This week we have three eminently desirable "Special Collectors Edition" Radiohead albums to give away: Kid A, Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief.

These editions differ from the regular "Collectors Editions" in that they each comprise two CDs and an additional DVD, with live recordings, TV performances and other rarities. The discs are presented in deluxe, lift-top box packaging, with a series of postcards.

Kid A was released in 2000 and FACT is hardly alone in thinking it Radiohead’s greatest album to date. It found the Oxfordshire band expertly reconciling their love of electronic and experimental music with their propensity for stadium-stirring melody and emotion, resulting in arguably the weirdest, most exploratory albums in history to have sold millions copies of worldwide. The Special Collectors Edition features the original album on disc one, and, on disc two, rare concert recordings, a 2000 BBC Radio 1 session, and live recordings from Canal+ Studios. The DVD adds three performances from the band’s June 2001 appearance on Later…With Jools Holland.

Amnesiac (2001) was born out of the same sessions as Kid A, and is arguably even more cryptic and compelling than its predecessor, boasting such beguiling tracks as ‘Pyramid Song’ and ‘Life In A Glasshouse’. The Special Collectors Edition features the original album on disc one, and on disc two, rare concert recordings and tracks recorded live at Canal+ Studios in 2001. The DVD adds four promo videos, two 2001 performances for Top Of The Pops, and four more songs from the band’s June 2001 appearance on Later….

Hail To The Thief, released in 2003, found the band partially re-connecting with the muscular rock sound of The Bends and OK Computer, and consolidated their position as one of the biggest acts in the world. The Special Collectors Edition of Hail features the original album on disc one, and on disc two, EPs with rarities and live recordings, as well as a May 2003 recording for the The Jo Whiley Show. The  DVD adds four promotional music videos, a live performance at the Belfort Festival and a May 2003 TV performance from Later….

These lavish re-issues come courtesy of Capitol, and are the most aesthetically pleasing and complete way to engage with one of the noughties’ most important bodies of work. To be in with a chance of winning all three, simply answer the following question:
