lvm2 /home partition mysteriously corrupt

This morning I switched my computer on and to my utter suprise my /home partition was messed up. This is what I get when trying to mount it:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/vg/home,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
I'm using an lvm2 under which I have /opt /usr /var /share and /home as separate partitions. I had all of them as reiser4 a while back but changed my home partition to reiserfs just to be on the safe side. Until this morning I've had no problems with any partition. Last night I used swsusp2 to shut down the computer (something I've been doing a thousand times with this setup) and now here I am.

Does anyone have any idea of what I could do to recover the data from that partition, I had some pretty important stuff I didn't have a chance to backup. Thanks a lot in advance.
