Not in any particular order and more limited than the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s definition of Rock

Meet The Beatles - The Beatles
Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - The Beatles
John Barleycorn Must Die - Traffic
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars - David Bowie
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) - David Bowie
Billion Dollar Babies - Alice Cooper
Brain Salad Surgery - Emerson, Lake, and Palmer
Singles Going Steady - Buzzcocks
Germfree Adolescents - X Ray Spex
The Cars - The Cars
Unknown Pleasures - Joy Division
Stateless - Lene Lovich
Drums and Wires - XTC
Dare - The Human League
Chomp - Pylon
The B-52’s - The B-52’s
Whammy - The B-52’s
Kaleidoscope - Siouxsie and the Banshees
Spring Sessions M - Missing Persons
Pleasure Victim - Berlin
The Queen is Dead - The Smiths
Nevermind - Nirvana
Superunknown - Soundgarten
Live Through This - Hole
It’s Not Me, It’s You - Lily Allen

Ceremonials - Florence and The Machine

I am glad you said not to count, no way I could limit it to ten. So many Kate Bush albums should be in there.

Not necessarily in order of merit:

A Beard Of Stars - Tyrannosaurus Rex
Ars Longa Vita Brevis - The Nice
Ogden's Nut Gone Flake - Small Faces
USA - USA
Keynsham - Bonzo Dog Band
Bam! Big Mustaphas Play Stereolocalmusic - 3 Mustaphas 3
Dreamboat Annie - Heart
Aqualung - Jethro Tull
From The Witchwood - Strawbs
New Clear Days - The Vapors
Revolver - The Beatles
Snap! - The Jam

Sorry they're all so old, but I've not been able to find anything better yet.
3 Mustaphas 3 isn't really rock, but with a title like that I couldn't leave it out.

An argument could be made for having more Beatles, Supertramp, Steely Dan and Pink Floyd on here.

The greatest Greatest Hits album would have to be: This is The Moody Blues

And...is there anyone who recorded on cassette who DIDN'T put these albums on alternate sides of a 90-minute cassette:

The who - Who Are You, Who's Next

Another one that doesnt get enough love. People mainly know it for All-Star, but I think each song on there is great.

There's a thing I don't really get about how people think of Pink Floyd, and it's a bit like them without Syd Barret (until Meddle or DSoM) = amateurish crap whereas DSoM = super band. It's kind of evident to me that they needed to build up the psychedelic, go all out on Ummagumma to then hollow it out and find a frame that worked for them. Still... is anyone going to say that psychedelic, especially dissonant psychedelic (the gaunt and scary kind) is something that any sixth-former can flick off in a few seconds? Either the late 60's were so oversaturated with psychedelic rock that there was no market for them doing that or something stranger maybe happened.

After Piper but before Dark Side it was like the band was in the wilderness. The uniting creative force of Syd had imploded and the band had to reinvent themselves.
I honestly really enjoy that era of the band, as they were very varied in style and did some really out-there stuff. As you say, I like when they would dip into psychedelic horror: Careful with that Axe Eugene, One of these Days, the title track on Saucerful, the middle part of Echoes...
