You can install LVM if you want, but it might be worth while to take

was lost when the disk failed - even on the disk that did not fail.
Backups did help, but that was an experience that made me decide never
to use LVM again.

Sadly you are blaming the wrong thing here. The correct thing to do
(after making sure you have a reliable backup system you trust) would be
not to use multiple physical disks underneath one LVM volume group.
