I am a happy lfs user. The main thing is that you have to take a couple of 
days to get and install all the software to get your system running.
I've installed it twice the manual way, and the last time I used 
automated-linux-from-scratch for the base system. Which makes it more like a 
primitive Gentoo.

I would recommend using some kind of package manager like paco: 
http://paco.sourceforge.net/ , at least for the software beyond the basic lfs 
system. Otherwise it is hard to keep track of what is on your system. Even on 
a mimimal music-production system.
